    • Sensorial

      The materials and activities in this area allow children to classify sensorial impressions and sort by size, shape, color, touch, sound, and weight

    • Math

      These activities make the abstract concepts of mathematics concrete for hands-on learning

    • Language

      The area includes books, stories, songs and rhymes, sequencing and matching activities and vocabulary development work

    • Science

      The Montessori approach to science indulges the child’s natural fascination with his surroundings, community and natural world

    • Geography

      These materials help the child learn about the facts of the material world, types of landmasses, bodies of water, continents and countries

    • Music

      Music education occurs through singing, listening to music, introduction of instruments, introduction of musical notation, and exploration of sound

    • Art

      Children are provided with varied media to help develop their creativity. Through art explorations children will make discoveries and create original and meaningful work

    • Physical Development

      Movement is built into all Montessori activities to develop gross motor and fine motor skills through running, jumping, swinging, ball play etc
