Preparing your child for school life…
In the Little Stars room children are learning independence, language development, cooperative play, problem solving and creative exploration. Our program is designed to develop children’s curiosity and exploration in their environment.
Little Stars room is peaceful, happy place designed to meet the developmental needs of each child in every stage of life.
Little Stars room contain many places for children to learn and play, in many different ways: by themselves, in pairs, in small groups, in large groups, inside, outside, at tables, on the floor. All items in the environment are scaled to the child’s size, including furniture, shelves, utensils, dishware, cleaning implements and the Montessori materials themselves.
Every day the children have the opportunity to express themselves and extend their vocabulary through conversations, songs, listening to stories and circle time. This is essential for the development of social skills and future academic work.
We provide activities for the children that enable them to develop skills which will be used in later life, namely social and communication skills.
The activities may include; small and large group circle times which require sharing and turn taking skills, card games or simple board games.
