"The development of language is part of the development of the personality, for words are the natural means of expressing thoughts and establishing understanding between people." - Maria Montessori

 

 

Language

The language arts are organized into categories of listening, speaking, writing and reading. The students practice skills in classification, visual discrimination, vocabulary development and auditory discrimination.

 

 

 

Practical Life

The students learn to care for the environment through simple tasks involving pouring, spooning, care of themselves, such as buttoning and tying, and care of environment such as polishing and washing.

 

 

 

Math

The students manipulate objects that introduce the understanding of mathematical concepts. Activities in this area include pattering, measuring, size classification and numeral quantity recognition  and addition.

 

 

 

Sensorial

Refines various perceptual discriminations in all five senses such as size, color, shape, texture, sounds, taste and smell.

 

 

 

 

 

Art, Music & Foreign Language

Art is an important part of the program where students using a wide variety of materials such as scissors and paintbrushes, learn to cut, paint and glue. These materials are available at all times. The students explore songs and dance rhythms through the use of music and musical instruments. 

 

UHM Montessori Excellence

The emphasis of a Montessori program and school is that they focus on meeting the individual developmental needs of each child. We, at University Heights Montessori (UHM) understand the uniqueness of the Montessori approach and have implemented it within our program. We understand and fully recognize the differences in the developmental rate and the varying patterns of abilities which characterize each child.

 

The principle aim of UHM is to assist each child in helping him or her to develop each of their potentialities as fully as possible in keeping with their unique pattern of development. The purpose, therefore, is to help each child develop within themselves the foundations requisite for a lifetime of creative learning. In other words, the program and the approach will stress the presentation of inherently attractive learning and discovery activities, which will help the child develop positive attitudes towards themselves, towards learning and towards his environment.

 

The Montessori Method will assist the child in sharpening their powers of observation, in developing their initiative in learning and through a wide variety of sensory-discrimination activities that will enable them to gain clear perceptions of quality and quantity in their environment, thus helping them develop the necessary background for understanding ideas and grasping abstract concepts when their interest in reading and numbers develop.

 

Through carefully planned initial experiences, the child experiences success in their efforts and thus acquires a sense of security, confidence in self as an independent learner and the courage to be creative and original in their attempts to express themselves.
