Montessori 1 class is for children above 3 years
The purpose of this class is to offer young children an experience away from home that allows them to grow at their own pace. The teachers are highly nurturing and they are particularly sensitive to the needs of 3 - 4 years old. They help the children with separation, socialization, cooperation, and independence – all important developmental tasks of this age group.
The children are given time and opportunity to explore language, music, movement, art, practical life activities, and fine and gross motor activities that meet their individual developmental needs. They practice skills such as buttoning, tying and zipping, caring for themselves and their environment.
Children in the Sunshine class do not need to be toilet-trained. However, the teachers work closely with parents to help a child begin this next developmental step.
