Early childhood environment

"The first duty of an educator: to stir up life but leave it free to develop."

- Maria Montessori

A Children's House is open to children from three to six year, who all live together as members of a family, and who therefore, have need of different occupations.

Environment for Early Childhood

Carefully design

As much attention has been and continues to be focus on the materials as its exquisitely, precisely and scientifically. But the usefulness of apparatus depends on the total environment in which learning occurs.

Totality of Montessori

Montessori environment has been first taking popular by how amazing the success of early academics. As the founder, Maria Montessori said, it succeed because "it touches the most important aspect of society, the man's inner life".

Freedom to Develop

Prepared environment should be given to children, which the child can freely choose, use as his please, and be a part of their community. "An educational influence is diffused throughout the whole environment, and both children and teacher have their roles to play in it.", Maria describe.

"The 'Children's House' is the environment which is offered to the child that he may given the opportunity to developing his activities."

- Maria Montessori

Early childhood Curriculum

Practical Life

Practical life items "invite a child to carry out do a real task with a practical goal to be obtain". Those "tasks which not only require increasing skills but also a gradual development of character because of the patient necessary for their execution and the sense of responsibility".

Sensorial

Inheritance from experimental psychologists, and is the result of Maria Montessori work with children. The training and sharpening of the senses with sensorial materials, enlarges the field of perception and offer an even more solid foundation of intellectual growth.

Language Art

The process of learning to read and write come naturally and begins with a child’s first interest. Speaking is developing throughout all others activities. Later, the child interested in writing and reading curriculum is backed by phonetics approach.

Mathematics

Learning math with Montessori begins with clear and concrete hands-on activities, instead abstract math concepts. The child literally see and explore what is going on in their studies by their hands.

Cultures

The biology and geography reproduce a small model for children study about our world cultures and nature. We see this as the foundation of a lifelong interest in sciences.

Furnitures

The classroom furnitures are not only required to be ergonomics, but also need to layout to avoid clutters, and are beautiful. That let the child feel like at "Children House" with comfortable and invited.
