The Montessori Program
At Meon Springs we offer a wide variety of stimulating Montessori activities, both inside and outside the classroom, designed to facilitate independent learning by the child.
Our children are encouraged to self select from among the resources displayed on open shelves as this best serves their individual interests, learning needs and their powers of engagement.
We provide a learning framework for your child using our Montessori equipment but also encapsulate the statutory requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage. Over time the child moves from being undisciplined to self-disciplined and from distracted to focused. The process occurs through repeated work with resources that captivate the child’s attention.
Practical life enhances the development of task organisation and cognitive order through care of self, care of environment, exercises of grace & courtesy, and coordination of physical movement.
The sensorial area enables the child to order, classify, and describe sensory impressions in relation to length, width, temperature, mass, colour, etc.
Mathematics makes use of manipulative materials to enable the child to internalize concepts of number, symbol, sequence, operations, and memorization of basic facts.
Language art includes oral language development, written expression, reading, phonics, creative dramatics, and children’s literature.
Cultural activities expose the child to basics in geography, history, life sciences, music, art, and movement.
It is important to provide the child with an early foundation that includes a positive attitude toward learning, inner security and a sense of order, and pride in their environment.
