Over 300 individual and group presentations are used in the following early learning areas. Many presentations use self-correcting rich high quality materials so the child "self-learns" with the hands and repeats with the heart and mind until he or she moves to the next activity.
Practical Life The purpose of these activities is to achieve sense of order, refine motor skills and become independent. The children learn to care for self and the community. They are guided through the social skills daily.
Sensorial The purpose of these activities is to refine the child's senses through manipulating scientifically designed materials. The child learns how to absorb abstract qualities and increases his/her ability to order and classify the environment.
Language The development of language starts with speech and progresses from writing to reading. The children are taught the sounds of the letters and then shown how to use various materials to blend sounds to make and read words.
Mathematics Numbers are introduced by figure identification and quantity. The child learns the value of 1, 10, 100, and 1,000. The use of concrete materials for learning addition, subtraction, multiplication and division leads the child from concrete to abstract computing.
Cultural Geography, botany and zoology are parts of the child's environment. Globes, puzzle maps, flags and land and water forms allow the child to learn about the world.
