The Montessori Curriculum offers children five key areas of study: Practical Life, Sensorial, Mathematics, Language, and Culture. Each learning area is made up of a set of Montessori materials that each teach one key knowledge area or skill. Through repetition and practice, children develop a foundational understanding of each material, and master the core competencies within each curriculum area.
Parent and Teacher Education
Montessori education involves free activity within a “prepared environment”, meaning an educational environment tailored to basic human characteristics, to the specific characteristics of children at different ages, and to the individual personalities of each child. The function of the environment is to help and allow the child to develop independence in all areas according to his or her inner psychological directives.
The Montessori Curriculum
Rainbow Montessori is an international early learning Preschool for ages 1 to 6. 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 are Thai lessons within the curriculum.
