CURRICULUM

Tappy Toes Nursery

CURRICULUM

"The objects surrounding the children should look solid and attractive to them, and the 'casa dei bambini' [children's house] should be lovely and pleasant in all its particulars....It is almost possible to say that there is a mathematical relationship between the beauty of their surroundings and the activity of the children; they will make discoveries rather more voluntarily in a gracious setting than in an ugly one."
—Maria Montessori

The “TappyToes” nursery will be following a Montessori curriculum based on the Montessori Method and also taking inspiration from certain essential principles of early Years Foundation Stage (“EYFS”) Program. However the curriculum will be entirely a Montessori curriculum.

The curriculum “TappyToes” will be following has been designed keeping in mind how each child can learn best. It is built around the most recent evidence from child psychology, brain-based research and most importantly based on the actual guidelines laid by Maria Montessori herself.

The curriculum is aimed to take care of children's physical, intellectual, social and emotional needs. The curriculum is built around the key fields of learning as stated in the original work of Maria Montessori, Practical life skills, Sensory skills, language skills, math and cognitive skills. Physical, social and cultural skills and value formation and character educations.

Practical Life
The practical life curriculum aims at the development of task organization and cognitive order through self care, exercises of grace and courtesy, care of the environment and through the physical skills, coordination of physical movements and cognitive skills to achieve a task enables the child to prepare for development in subsequent activities in other fields of learning such as socialization, mathematics and language.

Sensorial area
Along with practical life curriculum activities aimed at increasing the sensitivity and perception of the world through their senses enables the child to order, classify, and describe sensory impressions in relation to length, width, temperature, mass, colour, pitch, etc and understand the world around it.

Mathematics
Where our activities will be designed to introduce the concept of numbers, shapes, sizes , patterns, and space through exploration & practice enabling the child to develop its logical thought that arises based on the ability to organize and categorize, without just teaching math facts the activities will be aimed at making the child understand the core ideas through manipulation experimentation and invention, it is also designed to prepare the child for abstract study for the next subsequent levels of learning.

Language Arts
To aid the children to prepare themselves for language study by introducing them to the practical life and sensorial area with materials to refine their sensorial and motor skills which are vital for writing and reading in later stages of learning and efficient communication.

Library
As a part of the curriculum libraries will be given as much importance as possible to make books a part of a child’s life, to make it understand and learn about the world through books. Essential skills like treating a book, knowing the contents of a book, perceiving and understanding the illustrations and connecting them with the story read to them, having a responsibility for books and understanding courtesy and manners to be followed in a library will be taught in this curriculum through an extensive variety of books of diverse topics. Cultural Activities will be designed to expose the child to basics in history, geography, local flora and fauna.
