BABY SCIENTIST

Senses Montessori School knows how important it is for your child to have the best start in life. Therefore, we have a meticulously planned nursery, prepared for all the physical and intellectual demands of babies, with the comfort they have at home.

In the earliest months of life, children are highly interested in observing. They are trying to understand the world while their visual abilities are still developing. It is important for them to work with simple objects. Colors should contrast and be comfortable to the eye. It is also time to explore the senses and physical development, also accelerated in this phase: different textures, music, objects of different dimensions, etc. All this sensorial information satisfies the baby’s curious and tactile brain, which is absorbing everything.

That’s why our premium nursery has the finest materials for working the mind and body of babies at the most important point in their development stage. All our activities are carefully prepared by experienced teachers who are trained in the Montessori method to serve each child in the best way.

JUNIOR SCIENTIST

With approximately 18 months of age and a steady walk, kids are ready for the Junior Scientist’s room! They are now exposed to different activities and experiences to keep up with their quick neurological growth.

Many aspects of the intellect and cognition are now in focus:

  • Practical Life: “Practical life” is one of the foundations of the Montessori method and prepare the child for all other areas. By repeating certain tasks, we improve the basic skills that will be extremely useful for the rest of our lives, developing each student’s autonomy and self-sufficiency. Practical life activities in this room include fine motor skills exercises, balance, sense of organization, concentration and autonomy. It is important to remember that these are activities for which children already show a natural interest, since they observe them from an early age in their own homes.
  • Language: Around two years of age, children experience a great boom in language development. It starts with a few words, which soon becomes phrases and conversations. The materials in this room encourage the enrichment of language as a pillar for literacy and self expression.
  • Math: Students are exposed to the foundations of mathematics with concrete materials, such as cubes, bars, and colored wooden pieces. Important skills such as sense of order, sequencing, pairing, correspondence and classification form the basis for more sophisticated logical and mathematical reasoning.
  • Sensorial: We all learn through our senses, and this is especially true of very young children who are at the beginning of understanding the world around them. Sensorial activities assist Toddlers in the great task of organizing, integrating and learning about their sensory input. Sensorial materials include Knobbed Cylinders, Color Paddles, tactile exercises like Rough and Smooth, Musical Equipment, Sorting and Shapes.
  • Life Outdoors: Toddlers are encouraged to explore our gardens and play in the grass. Our outdoor area is safe and encourages children to enjoy nature and learn from it! WE also plant vegetables and spices to eat in our meals as part of the practical life activities.

SENIOR SCIENTIST

In the Senior Scientist room, mixed-age children coexist for a long period, forming a strong and healthy sense of community.

Dr. Maria Montessori developed a teaching method in which children develop and learn naturally, through activities that flow spontaneously. The goal of Senses is to allow the child to absorb and experience their environment through their senses, improving their individual natural abilities.

Children learn by doing, getting their hands dirty. Montessori activities and materials are carefully planned to help children feel and see math, language, work coordination and cognition, plus sense of community, mutual help and emotional balance. The role of the teacher in this room is to be a guide, leading each one through their own learning path. As the child grows, the room grows together offering new challenges.

Rapid growth takes place in the Senior Scientist room. The activities suggest more cooperation and more complex social interactions. Language is perfected by reaching the introduction to literacy. Mathematical reasoning is consolidated, as are physical and motor skills.

At Senses we are prepared to respond to this magical stage which comprises the end of early childhood, the moment of consolidation, of accomplishment, when valuable seeds are planted for a lifetime.
