The Montessori Curriculum
We work to two curriculums here at Yorkshire Montessori, the Montessori curriculum and the national standard, EYFS, as inspected by Ofsted. The Montessori curriculum comprises of seven areas: activities for everyday living, sensorial, arithmetic, literacy, cultural and creativity. Children here will experience a method of Montessori learning which suits their stage of development. For our youngest children, Montessori methods are set up in an exploratory environment, not too overstimulating and rich in language and natural resources which motivate them to find solutions and concentrate. In the toddler room, individual interests and developmental readiness is something we act upon, developing lifelong learning skills through creativity, art, food preparation and sensorial experiences. Once in preschool, the children explore the details of mathematics and languages, literacy and cultures, geography, history, science and art.
