At our Montessori day care Adelaide we follow the Montessori teaching method for children to reach their full potential. The Montessori method was founded over 100 years ago, which found that children require a specific environment to learn, absorb and develop. To confidently teach the Montessori method, our teachers undergo special training. Our Montessori day care Adelaide covers nursery, waddlers, pre-kindy and kindergarten. We teach children the independence, responsibility and practical life skills through several activities and lessons in their day. Advancing their practical life skills through cooking, washing, agriculture and music activities. While we use the Montessori teaching for our curriculum, teaching practical life, sensorial, problem solving and mathematics, language and literacy and culture. We focus on introducing your child to a range of teachings that the Montessori method has found vital to child development.
Our Montessori day care Adelaide environment is prepared to allow your children access to a safe and resourceful learning space. The key characterises of a Montessori teaching environment include trained staff, calm environment with a structured routine, real-life lessons and behavioural lessons. Our teachers hold all the required qualifications and training to successfully teach and understand child development. They remain respectful at all times, providing ongoing support during lessons and activity time throughout the day. Our calm and structured environment allows children to feel comfortable to express their personalities while teaching them a consistent daily routine. We have found this helps expose children to all aspects of life. Also, we go through all the necessary real-life lessons including personal hygiene, table setting, food preparation, cooking lessons, washing and gardening. All of these real-life lessons demonstrate responsibility and can also help impact positive behaviour.
Following the Montessori method, we created a curriculum that allows children to gain the most from our Montessori day care Adelaide. These lessons include practical life, sensorial, problem solving and mathematics, language and literacy, and culture. Practical life exposes children to jobs that will be used throughout their life. This includes cleaning, food preparation, washing dishes, vacuuming and more. Sensorial materials are used to refine visual, touch, smelling, taste, temperature, weight, tactile-muscular and colour senses. Exposing your child to numbers early in life assists with problem-solving. The exercise of mathematics in our Montessori day care Adelaide is about the process of discovering an answer, right or wrong. The Montessori language materials are designed to capture interest, focus attention and encourage independence through concentration. This allows children to be introduced to several language forms early on. Cultural lessons allow children to appreciate the uniqueness of all cultures and how they differ through music, stories and traditions.
To give your child the best chance at intellectual and self-growth and development, our Montessori day care Adelaide is guided by the Montessori teaching method. Through practical and intellectual lessons, your child will gain independence and a sense of belonging. To learn more, contact (08) 8130 6688.
