By the age of 3 years, a child acquires basic abilities of speaking, walking, bodily functions and fundamental control of hands and motor skills. Now is the period of rapid development of brain. The child now absorbs sights, sounds and information and processes them to give a structure to their core personality. This is a period of fast learning. Given enough stimulation, a child can really thrive and develop cognitive and mathematical skills. The child also experiments with motor skills learning to put things together and take them apart, focusing on analyzing and building body-mind coordination.
This is also a challenging time for the child. Surely but steadily, they learn how to write, begin reading, learning and following a routine. Our Montessori education hand holds them in this fascinating stage of development by providing activities and materials that stimulate their young minds and help them learn and grow. We follow Dr. Maria Montessori’s child-centered model for individualized, active learning within the framework of an integrated curriculum.
We encourage the child to spontaneously explore and progress at their pace through scientifically backed Montessori methodology of teaching and play.
