The classrooms are carefully prepared and ordered environment to meet the developmental needs of each child. All items in the classrooms are scaled to the child’s size, including furniture, shelves, utensils, dishware, cleaning implements and the Montessori materials. Bright and attractive colors, natural materials, fascinating cultural objects and interesting pictures on the wall all offer the children different sensory and intellectual experiences. When children first enter the classroom, they realize that they belong to that environment.
Classrooms are designed for both individual and cooperative activities which help to develop social responsibilities and communication skills. Teachers are “guiders” in the classrooms, because they guide children’s learning and experiences by giving them the freedom to be independent. Children can move freely throughout the environment; they can choose the activities that interest them, or they can work with the teacher, individually, or in small groups. This independence leads children to make decisions and be aware of their rights and tendency. Outdoor environments are important in Gardenya Montessori School, and offer opportunities to engage with the natural world. Children are encouraged to explore indoor and outdoor environments in the school.
Working on an art project is one of the favorite learning experiences for many children. Gardenya Montessori School provides an art room for the kids which helps them to work on art activities to develop fine motor skills and improve hand-eye coordination.
Children are natural scientists. They are full of the questions about world and how it works. Science room gives children a nice place to work and to store their experiments. They can also learn to work with scientific instruments.
