Our Children’s Houses are designed to create an ordered, aesthetically pleasant and visually harmonious environment that respects the child’s innate drives and needs and stimulates a student’s natural curiosity.
Our inviting, carefully organized learning environment encourages independence and concentration and enables the child to develop in optimal conditions.
Our students have the freedom to move from one cycle of work to the next in a constructive manner. Our prepared environment allows the child to move freely and explore, following their natural impulses and work with the materials they choose – after our Montessori trained teachers have presented it.
Structure and Order
Our prepared environment aids the child in building a sense of order and self-control.
A prepared environment provides structure and order in the classroom, which accurately reflects the sense of structure and order in the universe. This structure provides children the opportunity to work according to their age and ability, thus building concentration and a structure conducive to learning.
A prepared environment is a beautiful, uncluttered and well-maintained setting. Each Primary House has colorful and attractive materials reflecting peace and tranquility.
Every material has a place and purpose making the environment attractive.
All of these qualities support our students' creativity and their unique mind development.
Nature and Reality
Children use child-size real objects that fit their hands and are appropriate for their age. This encourages proper use, makes work manageable, and allows the completion of work without frustration.
Our child-size furniture in the classroom is appropriate for their height, so the child is not dependent on the adult for their freedom and movement.
This environment provides freedom to interact, inspiring children to learn and develop a sense of compassion, empathy for others, and respect. They become more socially aware and play in groups at the appropriate times.
This social interaction is maintained throughout the environment and is encouraged with our multi-age classroom settings. Our multi-age classrooms provide older children to develop leadership qualities while younger children mature at a faster pace due to the influence of their older peers.
Along with forming the child’s character, a prepared environment also develops them academically and intellectually. By guiding the child through our Montessori and bilingual curriculum (practical life, sensorial, language, mathematics, and cultural subjects), the child has the structure which inspires them to become independent, responsible, and self-motivated learners and citizens of the world. It is through this immersive and rich learning environment that groundwork is laid for a joy of lifetime learning from an early age.
