At Alpine, we approach education in a holistic way and focus on the unique developmental needs of each individual child. There are five key areas of learning in the Montessori environment. Each area helps children learn and grow by stimulating their development through logical and creative experiences

How Does the Montessori Curriculum Work?

    The Montessori curriculum provides children with five main areas of learning: real life, sensory, mathematics, language and cultural studies. Each learning area consists of a series of learning materials of increasing complexity. Children progress through the Montessori curriculum at their own pace, based on their developmental stage and interests. Our well trained Montessori educators lead key lessons introducing children to the titles and learning outcomes of each Montessori material. After key lessons, children practise and explore Montessori materials on their own and connect to key learning outcomes. At this time, Montessori educators step back, observe how children learn, and record their progress. Educators will intervene only when necessary to encourage children's independence, as there is a direct link between a child's self-esteem and ability to learn and retain new skills and information.

    : A new class is offered when the child is ready to move on to the next level. Through repetition and practice, children master the sequence of Montessori materials and develop a fundamental understanding of each area of the curriculum.

Key Curriculum Areas

  • Practical life: Independence, social skills and care for the environment
  • Sensorial: Colours, shapes, textures, weights, dimension, discrimination and distinguishing between smells, taste and sound
  • Mathematics: Numbers, quantities, counting, addition, subtraction, decimal system, multiplication and division
  • Language: Oral language, phonics, letter formation, sentence structure, vowels and consonants, writing, reading and early literacy skills
  • General Awareness: All about my Earth and the the world beyond (includes people, animals, plants which later are categorised as Geography, Botany, Chemistry etc in the Secondary School)

The Five Areas of the Montessori Curriculum

Practicall Life element

Practical Life

The Montessori Practical Life Curriculum incorporates exercises and activities that children observe in daily life. These activities develop children's independence, concentration, and fine motor skills. Within the Montessori Curriculum, activities of Practical Life revolve around five key areas, including: Preliminary Exercises, Care of Self, Care for the Environment, Grace and Courtesy, and Control of Movement.

  • In the Preliminary Exercises, children learn the basic movements of all societies, such as pouring, folding and carrying.
  • Care of Self incorporates activities connected with personal care and the maintenance involved in everyday life, such as washing hands, and getting dressed.
  • Care for the Environment is focused on teaching children how to interact with their environment in a way that exhibits love and respect. Typical activities include: watering a plant, washing a table, and arranging flowers.
  • Through Grace and Courtesy exercises children learn the skills associated with social interactions. Key activities include greetings, introducing oneself, and how to appropriately interrupt others.
  • Control of Movement is focused on teaching children to refine and coordinate control of their bodies through activities such as walking on the line and the silence game.

Sensorial activities teach children to refine their senses of sight, touch, sound, smell and taste so that they are able to organise sensory impressions and their understanding of the world. Through sensorial materials, children learn about similarity and difference, dimensions, colours and shapes, and distinguish between smells, taste and sound.

Sensorial work also prepares children for mathematics, language and geometry by teaching children how to classify and sort.

Some of the most loved Sensorial Activities are

  • Pink Tower
  • Colour Box
  • Geometric Solids
  • Scent Boxes
  • Cylinder box
  • Brown Stair
  • Long Red Rods
  • Touch Fabric
  • Mystery Bag
  • Sound Cylinders
  • Botany Cabinet etc.

The Mathematics Curriculum teaches children to understand abstract mathematical concepts and relationships through hands-on learning experiences. Children learn to count, identify and match numerals to their quantity, relate decimal quantities and symbols, and become aware of the functions of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division by using the Montessori materials.

Some of the most loved Mathematics Activities and Manipulatives are

  • Numerals and Counters
  • Hanging Bead Stair
  • Teen Boards
  • Hundred Board
  • Geometric Form Cards
  • Number Rods
  • Sandpaper Numerals
  • Number Rods & Numerals
  • Spindle Boxes
  • Bird's Eye View
  • Composition of Numerals and Quantities
  • Bank Game
  • Golden Bead Operations
  • Stamp Game
  • Dot Game
  • Small Bead Frame
  • Cards & Counter etc

The Montessori Language Curriculum provides children with the knowledge and skills to build their vocabulary and understanding of language. The skills required for reading, writing and oral language are developed through hands-on experience using the Montessori language materials. Children learn letter sounds (phonics), letter identification and formation, how to combine sounds to make words, how to build simple sentences, and how to properly hold a pencil. Oral language skills are developed through daily social interactions, group time experiences, and lessons in grace and courtesy.

Example materials and activities include:

  • Sandpaper Letters
  • Moveable Alphabet
  • Metal Insets
  • Three Part Cards

General Awareness

The General Awareness Curriculum incorporates a wide range of subjects, including: Geography, Botany, Zoology, Science, History, Music and Art. Through explorations of culture, children develop an understanding of their community, their world, and their social responsibilities. Children learn to respond to diversity with respect, appreciate music and art, and develop awareness of sustainability.

Example materials and activities include:

  • Land and Water Forms
  • Continent Boxes
  • Life Cycle Puzzle and Activities
  • Map Cabinet
