OUR PROGRAM AT BAMBINI MONTESSORI ACADEMY IS DESIGNED TO MEET THE PHYSICAL, SOCIAL, EMOTIONAL AND COGNITIVE NEEDS OF A YOUNG CHILD . CHILDREN ARE ENCOURAGED TO DEVELOP GOOD WORK HABITS AND SHARE IN THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THEIR LEARNING. THEY WORK AT THEIR OWN PACE AND ON THEIR OWN LEVEL WITH GUIDANCE FROM DEDICATED MONTESSORI TEACHERS. THE MONTESSORI MATERIALS ARE DESIGNED TO APPEAL TO THE CHILD’S NATURAL DESIRE TO LEARN. MONTESSORI CLASSROOM IS DIVIDED INTO THE FOLLOWING AREAS:
This is about enhancing the development of hand-eye coordination, gross motor control, and cognitive abilities through the care of self, care of the environment, development of social relations, and coordination of physical movement.
This involves exercises to enable the child to order, classify and describe sensory impressions in relation to length, width, temperature, mass, color, etc.
Extensive concrete mathematics materials allow the children to explore concepts and operations to uncover for themselves the underlying principles of basic mathematics. The children’s repeated manipulation of these aesthetically and carefully designed materials builds a firm foundation of concrete experience on which later abstraction can rest.
Areas targeted under this category include oral language development, written expression, reading, grammar, creative dramatics, and children’s literature. Basic skills in reading and writing are developed through the use of sandpaper letters, wooden alphabet cut-outs, and various presentations. This teaches children to link sounds and letter symbols effortlessly and to express their thoughts through writing.
The introduction to cultural subjects is made as extensions of the sensorial materials and language activities. Art, music, geography, history, botany, zoology, and science are integrated into a holistic approach to living and learning in our human family, on our planetary home across cultures and throughout history. Through nature, story, music, art, and food the guide fosters in the children a reverence and love for all of creation.
These activities are designed to stimulate creativity and expression using a variety of materials and techniques. The children learn to cut, glue/paste. Perforate shapes with a pin punch, color, paint, seasonal arts & crafts, art appreciation.
These activities prepare the child for development of second language skills by using total physical response methods with frequent participation in songs, games, finger plays and oral reading of books In both English and Spanish.
Is an integral part of the Montessori environment . It enables children to communicate and express themselves non-verbally; helps them enjoy music and feel happy; enhances their math skills, literacy, and overall brain development; and can even improve their academic performance.
The outdoors is set up to fill the children’s need to connect with nature, tent to the outdoor environment , and exercise their large muscles. Different areas are designed and provided with specialized equipment to fulfill each of these needs.
The children enjoy activities such as sweeping the stepping-stones, washing the birdbath, and gathering acorns.
Gardens of herbs, vegetables, and flowers allow the children to plant, weed, water, and harvest. The experience of “seed to table” informs and inspires the child.
We’ll handle your child with care!
