Why Montessori Teaches Mathematics This Way
Dr. Montessori believed that learning by manipulating objects and learning through the senses creates stronger connections in the brain.
Math gives children visual and tactile representations of the numbers they are working with. Our mathematics program begins with the identification and comparison of size using the sensorial materials. Children then learn the names and symbols of numbers, correspond the symbols to quantities, and subsequently count into the thousands. Children add and subtract, skip-count for multiplication, and perform simple division. Geometry and fractions are introduced from an early age.
Dr. Maria Montessori believed that we are children of the world. A key component of the philosophy is respecting other cultures and experiencing their diversity. The more we understand each other, the more we can cultivate peace.
At Karter Montessori, we are raising “children of the world”, we do this by educating the children about the people, languages, traditions, celebrations, food, music and more from around the globe.
Friends. Family. Food!
At Karter Montessori, We offer a rainbow of foods that offers the highest possible standard in nutrition for our children.
We believe that good food brings everyone together. Our students plant and harvest fruits and vegetables in the school garden. Preparing and serving food in the Montessori environment is a way to cultivate a sense of community and friendship. Teachers sit and eat with the children during lunchtime modelling healthy eating habits and table etiquette.
We are committed to providing healthy meals and snacks. Our goal is to help children develop healthy habits for a healthy future.
