The Directress

The Montessori teacher is the designer of the environment, a simple observer who presents lessons to the children when they are ready, a role model and a facilitator. In Montessori education teachers operate very differently. Their role is to observe each child. In this environment each child receives what they need when they need it.

Practical Life Includes activities such as pouring, sorting, serving, polishing and many other activities using real life objects in a child sized environment. PL encourages good habits, concentration, independence, and coordination.

Sensorial. Through the 5 senses the sensorial materials prepare the child to sharpen their abilities in learning mathematics, writing and reading.

Language. It is through Sandpaper letters and phonetic sounds that the child explores the language in a Montessori class. Metal Insets, moveable alphabet are used to help and refine fine motor skills. Mathematics, Cultural area, Geography, History are some other important areas in the Montessori curriculum. The room or environment is furnished with shelves to contain and organize the materials, child size furniture, and workspaces. There may be no teacher’s desk or area.
