Montessori Kidscity Activities

Kidscity Montessori is a happy and exciting experience for children. Within the context of concept-based learning, we provide a wealth of experiences in a safe and relaxed environment.

  • A trained Montessori teacher who follows the child and is highly experienced in observing
    the individual child's characteristics, tendencies, innate talents, and abilities.
  • Specialized educational materials developed by Montessori and her collaborators
    often made out of natural, aesthetic materials such as wood rather than plastic.
  • Freedom within limits.

The Montessori method views the child as the one who is naturally eager for knowledge and capable of initiating learning in a supportive, thoughtfully prepared learning environment. It attempts to develop children physically, socially, emotionally and cognitively. Montessori Kidscity Activities in classrooms, children make creative choices in their learning children work in groups and individually to discover and explore the knowledge of the world and to develop their maximum potential.
Children can bring through their own experience and at their own pace and also build a solid foundation for life-long exercises of and practical life.
The Montessori Sensor Kidscity Activities develop gross motor coordination, fine motor skills, and language skills.

Montessori Curriculum

The classroom curriculum for children from 3 to 6 years old is divided into four working areas:

Practical Life: These are Kidscity Activities that aim to the care of the person, of others and of the physical environment where they live in. These Kidscity Activities include tasks that are familiar to the child: washing, polishing, setting the table, arraging flowers, etc. They also include Kidscity Activities of "grace and courtesy", which are part of all civilized people. Through these and other Kidscity Activities, children achieve coordination and control of movement and exploration of his/her surroundings. Children learn to complete a task from beginning to end, they develop their will, self-discipline, the capacity of concentration and self-confidence.

Sensorial: Children at this age learn through senses more than through their intellect. The sensorial materials are tools for children to refine each of their senses. Each material isolates a specific quality: smell, size, weight, texture, flavour, colour, etc. In this preschool age, when children are "bombarded" with sensorial information, these materials allow them to find order and meaning to the world, raising his/her capacity of perception, favouring observation and a sense of admiration for everything that surrounds him/her.

Language: When the child enters an environment at age 3, they enrich the language that they had already acquired. They are capable of using it intelligently with precision and beauty, slowly realizing its properties. They learn to write, starting with their senses (hearing and touching), and as a natural consecquence they learn to read. As an extension of language Kidscity Activities, children learn about geography, history, art and music. These areas help the child to know his/her surroundings and to realize the place the child occupies in this world. They teach him to respect and love for his/her environment, and they create a sense of solidarity with all humanity and his/her habitat.

Mathematics: The materials help the child to learn and understand mathematical concepts when working with concrete materials that lead him/her intuitively to abstract concepts. They offer him/her sensorial impressions of the numbers and set the foundations for algebra and geometry.
