FIVE PILLARS OF MONTESSORI

The iSmart Montessori curriculum covers the whole spectrum of Montessori training and prepares your child for formal schooling. The five Montessori Subjects have their emphasis on learning through hands-on activities – conducted in creative and fun ways that highlight enriching and discovery pursuits. In addition, children are exposed to various other subjects to ensure that they develop all-rounded skills in preparation for formal schooling.

PRACTICAL LIFE SKILLS

Everyday activities like pouring water from a jug, spooning pasta or buttoning are introduced to your child, developing his / her gross and fine motor skills, confidence, focus and self-control as well as key social skills.

SENSORY EXERCISES

Sensory exercises are designed to engage the five senses and focus on imbuing each child with awareness as they learn about different shapes, sizes and the ability to perceive differences, compare and estimate, which form a strong foundation for Mathematics.

LANGUAGES

Phonics and early grammar are introduced through Montessori tools and activities like sandpaper letters to encourage your child to associate auditory, tactile and visual input, resulting in a strong foundation in literacy.

In addition to English classes, our Intensive Chinese programme provides a strong foundation and prepares for your child for Primary 1 education in the Chinese language. A combination of comprehensive study materials and fun activities allow them to appreciate Mandarin in an interesting and stimulating manner. They will also develop both oral and written skills. This well-structured programme is slated to be fun and effective!

MATHEMATICS

Our children first learn addition and subtraction through tangible Montessori apparatus they can feel and grasp, like the Number Rods and Golden Beads, before graduating to more complex, abstract calculations, preparing them for formal schooling.

CULTURE STUDIES

Here, we expose our children to a broad spectrum of experiences and topics including Science, History, Botany and General Knowledge and engage them in age-appropriate discussions to keep them informed about the world, and teach them to love, respect and care for it.
