Practical Life

Learning to walk, run, and care for self are amazing adventures!

Maria Montessori understood that children have an intense need for independence. This becomes most evident when babies shift from crawling and develop the desire to learn to walk. Currently, we find babies seem to lose interest in toys and other learning experiences and instead focus on moving as much as possible. They are exploring their world. Practical life activities encourage independence.

Community Helpers

This October, we have the theme, Community Helpers. This will help the children recognize the important people and their roles in the community. We believe that this is an important lesson that every child must know. This will help us encourage them to think more closely and appreciate all the people in their community.

Ladybugs and Toddlers

During October, we continued reviewing the learning that has taken place in our classrooms and focused on several ideas.

  • Grace and courtesy - offering, saying please, and thank you
  • Practical life - eating healthy, healthy habits
  • Sensorial - color recognition
  • Language - learning the alphabet
  • Math - counting numbers
  • Care of self and other beings
  • Care for the environment
