Tiny Home Montessori Nursery accepts children from the tender age of 18 months to 6 years. We have two bespoke programs specially designed for children to learn through play while encouraging (and noticing) their individual interests.
The Toddler programme usually accepts children from 20 months to 2.10 or 3 years. This program has its own distinct prepared environment geared towards providing for the physical and psychological development needs of the child at this early age. The environment created and materials used allow for freedom of movement and the growth of independence. Emphasis is placed on development of individuality through self-help, motor, sensorial, language and social development.
The toddler program has its own separate fee structure. Timings are the same as for the older children.
The Montessori Program
A Montessori class consists of children of mixed age groups, starting from 2.6 years. As a result, each individual child always has available to him/her materials for which he/she is ready. This arrangement also permits younger children to learn from older and older ones an opportunity to reinforce their own knowledge by helping the younger ones.
Supporting your child’s growth in self-confidence, independence, and ability to accomplish life skills that are needed, Tiny Home’s Montessori curriculum can broadly be divided into 5 main categories:
- Practical life: The Practical Life area in a Montessori classroom is a variety of daily life activities that aid in the development of coordination and concentration. Our classrooms are specially designed to encourage children to choose their own activities and make discoveries. The activities include pouring from steel pitchers, fastening clothes, and caring for their environment.
- Sensorial: The purpose of the Sensorial activities is to help the child in his efforts to sort out his many varied impressions given by the senses. Our materials are specifically designed to help the child develop discrimination, order and to broaden and refine the senses. These materials also help prepare your child to be logical, aware and a perceptive person.
- Language: In a Montessori classroom, language is not only a distinct area in the environment but runs parallel with other activities in the classroom such as with books, group time activities (songs, finger plays, naming activities, poems, sound games), conversation as an integral part of the classroom and vocabulary enrichment (nomenclature of the materials, picture card matching games).
- Mathematics: Mathematic activities are presented in a visual and tactile manner, allowing children to feel and understand the quantities presented to them before learning about the abstract concepts of numerals and their functions. In the class, Montessori materials such as the number rods and spindle boxes provide step-by-step learning. The children learn to count, associate quantity and numerals, and gain a sensorial impression of the decimal system.
- Culture: Culture plays an important part in the Montessori curriculum. The cultural area deals with astronomy, botany, zoology, history and geography. Because of our dedication to our multi-cultural backgrounds, we encourage parents to participate and introduce their cultures to our children through songs, food and other fun activities. Activities are often planned around Independence Day and National costumes and festivals.
