About Josiah Montessori Kindergarten
(18 months to 30 months)
The Toddler Montessori programme offers very young children an experience of self development in a tender atmosphere of special understanding, respect and support. Many of the activities in the Toddler programme highlight the self-help skills that lead to independence, concentration and confidence.
This naturally includes developing the child’s social graces, interaction with others, good manners and consideration for others like greeting, sharing, taking turns, etc.
Through songs, conversations, classifying objects, the child’s ‘sensitive period’ is tapped in to expand his/her growing vocabulary.
He/She will also have a variety of physical activities that offer him/her opportunities to jump, balance, crawl and run. The Toddler programme creates a gradual and gentle progression towards the Playgroup programme.
Playgroup to Advance Workgroup
(Nursery 1 to Kindergarten 1)
The Playgroup to Advance Workgroup classroom is basically a child’s world geared to the size, pace and interest of children of this age group. The environment is carefully prepared with specially designed apparatus that provide varied opportunities for the child to develop and progress individually.
The child begins work with simple concrete apparatus that helps develop concentration, coordination, independence and good working habits. This leads to more advance and complex work in the Workgroup and progressively into the Advance Workgroup. This curriculum includes Practical Life exercises, Sensorial activities, Mathematics, English, Mandarin, Culture, Music and Movement as well as Art and Craft.
The unique feature of this programme is that each individual child is allowed to blossom to his/her fullest potential through personalized guidance and a syllabus tailored to his/her own talents and individuality.
The Pre-Primary class is specially tailored for six years old. The programme covers the whole spectrum of the Montessori curriculum within a more structured classroom teaching environment. It gives exposure to more group learning, board work, projects and assessments.
Apart from acquiring the basic skills of the English Language and Mathematics, the programme helps to develop confidence through recitals, public speaking and role play. More emphasis is also given to develop spelling, writing, creative thinking and problem solving skills. This will help prepare and enable them to meet the challenges and demands of formal school education in their later years.
