In our Montessori classroom, children are able to pursue and explore the interests in the following areas


Practical Life Area

Children develop selfhelp skills by doing activities that they observe in their daily routines. These exercises provide opportunities to improve eyehand coordination, fine motor skills, a sense of order and concentration. A few examples of activities that can be found in this area are: pouring water from one container to another, spooning, using tongs and buttoning frames.

Sensorial Area

Children learn to distinguish between objects by height, weight, width, shape, color, sound, taste, smell and texture. Through orderly use of scientifically designed materials, the child’s senses are sharpened and refined. This area also provides a foundation for higher math concepts.


Language Area

Children acquire skills for oral and written language through sharing of spoken thoughts, feelings and ideas. Children gain enjoyable and purposeful experiences as the develop skills for reading and writing through guided use of materials. Chinese lessons are offered every Fridays related to the Montessori curriculum themes taught that year. Children learn Mandarin words and phrases through singing, dancing, listening to stories and practicing on learning materials.


Math Area

Children develop an understanding of number concepts in this area. Through progressive application of handson materials, children naturally grasp abstract mathematical concepts.


Science, Cultural, Art, Music and Movement Areas

These subjects stimulate interest in natural life, the world, and the universe. Multicultural subjects broaden children’s perspective, builds respect for others, and teaches peace.
