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.
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:
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.
