What can you do to help your child?

Montessori educational activities can be categorized into 5 areas:

  1. Practical life – personal and social skills used in daily living; care of self and environment, courtesy & etiquette etc.

  2. Sensorial – developing the child’s sense perceptions of the world and using their senses to learn.

  3. Language – reading, writing, spelling etc.

  4. Mathematics – counting, arithmetic etc.

  5. Culture – physical science, history, geography, biology etc.

 

These activities or experiences are presented in a ‘prepared environment’ with each new task building upon the principles of the earlier ones and promoting work habits that lead to success in later academic work. The activities are designed to be self-teaching and promote independent learning.
