Excellent Montessori and Registered Home Daycare in North Ajax (Middlecote & Taunton)

Sitter in Ajax

I am a certified AMI Montessori teacher with over 20 years of experience as a Montessori directress. I've set up a home based Montessori daycare which follows the Montessori philosophy and consists of specialized Montessori educational materials that build a rich and stimulating environment for children to learn. Unlike traditional daycares, I've created an atmosphere that fosters a love of learning and growth of functional independence among children, not a place where children are only entertained. I strictly follow the Montessori philosophy and curriculum as I believe the Montessori Method and materials helps a child develop the prime elements of character such as freedom, concentration, independence, self-discipline and perseverance. The educational program is divided into five areas: Practical life, Sensorial, Language, Math, and Science. 1-PRACTICAL LIFE: Practical life activities are the activities of everyday life. Children learn various different skills such as care of self, the environment, movement of objects and are also taught common courtesy. Practical skills are taught by several activities such as pouring, using a spoon, folding, using tools, beading, preparing small snacks, carrying and handling Montessori materials, learning how to groom themselves and gardening. All these activities help a child practice hand eye coordination, gross and fine motor skills and daily functions. 2- SENSORIAL: The Montessori Sensorial curriculum promotes the development and refinement of the five senses. The sensorial materials encourage children to classify, distinguish and improves their perceptions of size, shape, colour and texture. Sensorial activities also helps prepare a child for mathematics, geometry, language, and writing. 3-MATHEMETICS: Children are able to discover math with a hands on approach. Montessori math materials are designed to represent all types of quantities and engage the children when they display an interest in counting as they can enumerate them. These concrete materials also allow children to easily visualize the basic operations of mathematics (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division). Children also participate in several different activities such as learning to rote count, trace sand paper numerals, writing numerals on chalkboard, etc. 4) LANGUAGE : The classroom consists of a plethora of language building activities. Children are exposed to a variety of literature as well as Montessori language materials that help them grow into readers and writers. Reading instruction is presented to the child as soon as early as 2-1/2 or 3. Construction of words and writing with moveable alphabets is nearly always followed by reading. Students are introduced to reading phonetically and writing by utilizing the montessori materials specifically designed to assist them as they learn to read. 5-SCIENCE : Children learn about animals and plants. The child learns what plants and animals require, their life cycles, and how they are classified. Learning about plants and animals helps a child gain a sense of appreciation for all living things. Students make use of the various Montessori materials to explore the world of science such as, sink and float, magnetic and non-magnetic, botany and animal puzzles, etc. Bi-weekly science experiments are also done. In addition to montessori activities, children also engage in arts and crafts, explore the beauty of music through the use of introductory instruments, learn about nature through various outdoor activities (weather permitting), and participate in healthy physical activity daily. I recognize that every child is unique and montessori activities are based on your child's age, needs and interest. Facility is footsteps to parks and playgrounds.
