Montessori education promotes firsthand, self-paced, and collaborative learning. Children in the Montessori classroom follow their interest, find their passion which leads to strong academics, leadership, self-discipline, independence, initiative, and a long-life love of learning. "Children are innately interested in learning about the world around them and through their natural curiosity are able to develop themselves. The prepared classroom environment supports their natural development. Montessori education enables children to develop the fundamental capacities that they need to become happy and fulfilled adults who contributes to society".
Cultural studies bring an awareness that everything in the universe is associated, and all the components depend on one another. Children learn about their surroundings, culture, and other countries using the globes, puzzle maps, land & water forms, and flags. They use pictures and name cards to match, classify and name the elements and species of the natural world.

Our language materials are based on a orderly phonic approach to writing and reading. At first, the children learn sensorially by tracing sandpaper letters with their fingers and learning the sound of the letter at the same time. Soon, they can write simple three letter words with movable alphabet, matching words with objects and reading their first pink series phonic reading books. As they progress, children develop the concept of creative writing, blending words, phonograms, sight words, and short sentences.
Maria Montessori believed that young children have a "mathematical mind". The Montessori Math includes the development of concepts such as numeration, place value, fractions, and the basic operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division using numbers up to 9999. The children develop a concrete understanding of these concepts through the specialized Math materials in the classroom.
Practical life activities develop motor control and coordination, enhances independence, concentration, and a sense of responsibility. The exercises in practical life cover two fundamental areas of development: care of self, and care of the environment. Practical Life exercises also aid growth and development of the child's intellect and concentration.
The Sensorial area in a Montessori classroom cover a range of well thought - out exercises to help children sort, match and compare objects by shape, size, touch, taste, and sound. Montessori sensorial materials serve the primary purpose of developing and refining the different senses. This allows children to use their senses to explore and understand the world around them.
