Early Learners Program | 2 to 3 Years Old Program

Program Overview

This program introduces ‘Practical Life’ lessons as the link between a child’s home environment and the classroom. These encompass: control of movement, care of self, care for the environment and Grace & Courtesy.

The children enjoy both familiar ideas and new ideas through exploration of the seasons, gardening and cooking. They enjoy painting, singing and listening to stories and begin to learn the simple concepts of mathematics and language.

Maria Montessori refers to development in this period as the spiritual embryo. She believed that a second embryonic period occurred after birth, during the first three years of life, when the child’s intelligence is formed. This is the time the child acquires the culture and language into which he or she is born. It is the period when the core of personality, social being and the essence of spiritual life are developed.
