The Montessori Curriculum
Rainbow Montessori Kindergarten Phuket is an international early learning Preschool from ages 1 to 7. This is a great opportunity to immerse your children into the English language at an early age, giving them the greatest opportunity for later in life. Montessori is a method of education that is based on self-directed activity, hands-on learning and collaborative play. In Montessori classrooms children make creative choices in their learning, while the classroom and the trained teachers offer age-appropriate activities to guide the process. The education in our kindergarten is primarily in English however there is Thai lessons within the curriculum.
The 1-3 Curriculum
Integrative Montessori playgroups offer the first contact with other children, a gentle break away from their parents, and a playful development of the movement. The concept of the playgroup is primarily based on games and activities that offer the children their (free) space for their individual development. The selection of the material, the preparation of communicative situations, and the behavior of the teachers are based on the pedagogical concept of Maria Montessori. We want to offer the children the following opportunities:
A space for the development of independence and self-reliance the free choice of play material and play partners being able to find one’s way around in a group and being able to assert oneself observation and imitation help and receive help standing back, representing the interests and perceiving the needs of others adhering to group rules actively dealing with other children and the material first detachment from them Parents Children with and without special educational needs experience an almost uninhibited interaction with one another acceptance of their differences with strengths and weaknesses tidying up at the end of each season practical life exercises, such as pouring something to drink. Learning through your own doing age-appropriate exercise offers—hopping, crawling, running, jumping, the ability to move and act, this is the basis for the mental, physical and spiritual growth of the child.
