Our Kindergarten program is beautifully woven into our primary program and is a culmination of the many lessons and hands-on learning experiences from previous primary years. The Kindergarten curriculum in Montessori is thoroughly designed and tested to show the interconnectedness of the different areas in the prepared environment. The Kindergarten year highlights introduction to abstraction, composition, and independence. Children at CMSLN Kindergarten Program work on the materials according to their developmental stages. In the different areas of study, they are encouraged to assimilate information from prior knowledge and experiences to understand text using picture clues, interaction, differentiation, and by reading.
Montessori trained teachers explain the use of materials and serves as the main connecting link between classroom learning material and the child.
Areas of Learning:
Language builds on the foundation laid in Pre -school and Pre -Kindergarten. This sets the stage for the children to master skills such as reading, writing, spelling, poetry, handwriting, parts of speech and grammar.
Everything in this world has something to do with Math. Kindergarten children apply the Math skills they learn in other areas such as Language, Cultural Arts, and Sensorial. The four fundamental operations are taught in detail for the children to understand and appreciate the wonderful world of Math.
Cultural Arts (Geography, History, Botany, and Zoology)
In Cultural Arts, the children learn to understand the diversity of human culture and the unique nature of places. They are introduced to the chronological concepts in analyzing historical events. The children study the formation of the Earth, its place in the Solar System, its atmosphere, weather, and seasons and its various land and water forms. Botany and Zoology lessons are presented to them with real specimens and allow them to share their own observations.
