Montessori Toddler Programme ( 16 months + )

About

Toddlers are basically very active and want to learn things by themselves. The years when the inquisitiveness to do things is fulfilled, the thought process and skill must be put together to help the child.  A Child can learn to do by himself and then curiosity is accomplished through the activity. Self-help skills are taught with adult mentor’s intervention in the classroom.

Observing other children and trying to do as others do help them to learn by themselves.  Later they initiate to perform by themselves.  By trying to select an activity by themselves, the individual tries to master the skill involved in it.

A Clean and Tidy self:

Children tend to know by themselves that tidiness and cleanliness is the order of life. They will be learning to keep their hands clean all the time and handwash at intervals, blow and wipe the nose by using a handkerchief, set the dress they are wearing, folding and unfolding their napkin before and after food time, use of sanitizer and handwash after going to toilet, etc., these are the many important and personality skills that we teach at BMH. To identify themselves when they are feeling unclean is a reality learning.

A thing in its place and a place for a thing:

Young children tend to be very sensitive to an unorganized classroom.  Often, they are unpleasant when the things around them are in disorder.

We help to provide carefully prepared, child-sized and very orderly environment. Children can access everything they may need, independently. A daily routine is habituated in the closed environment and outside the class to make the child room also. They are taught to be cautious to their responsibilities in all areas of playing, activity- doing, self-care, community staying, etc.,

Language for Toddlers:

Toddlers tend to respond to sounds and are very excited to listen and speak. It is the right time to inculcate language skill of listening to words, sentences,  rhymes , songs,  correct pronunciation,  phonic sounds and naming and identifying things.

The child first listens to sounds repeatedly and become familiar to it. They make an association with the familiar sounds and words and what each word represents.

 Toddlers are introduced to the language room to a variety of learning equipment.  The early days are spent in getting used to look,  touch and utter sounds related to the designed material. At a suitable time they get consciously involved in the language related activity.   Group activities for listening and repeating the sounds,  learning vocabulary from known to unknown, word building, listening to stories and songs,  story making, singing action songs,  reciting poems,  rhymes are done.

Social skills.

A child is a human being who needs interaction with others through voice, sight and touch. The child has to fit in psychologically and physically in a closed society and an open society, both familiar and unfamiliar.  A set of social rules and standards change the children verbal and non-verbal ways. The school helps children for active listening, interpersonal skills, social functioning skill, academic discipline, and social psychology.

Communication is understanding, caring, sharing, decision making, problem solving in the initial way.

Hands on Activities:Learning by Doing.

Children directly involve in practical activities; this involves the eye-hand -mind coordination. The child pro-actively engages in their activities, even in a sub-conscious mind. Children can work on practical life skills and sensory skills on parallel lines.
