Practical Life

As a core feature of the Montessori programme, young children engage in meaningful real life activities such as Washing Tables, Polishing Brassware, Tying Shoes, Buttoning & Zippering, Sweeping Floors, etc., developing manual dexterity and muscular coordination, and making them more independent. Accomplishing tasks that grown-ups do, help to foster self-esteem and a sense of belonging.

This also allows the child the opportunity for movement, where in traditional classrooms, they are expected to sit still even when they have not gained the necessary control for doing so. The happy balance of freedom to explore and work within a prepared, orderly environment, filled with mind-engaging sensorial materials and activities, is the hallmark of the Montessori learning environment.

The classroom is a non-competitive atmosphere that is designed to bring order to the daily impressions received by the child. There are opportunities for children to work independently, in small groups and the class as a whole. Ultimately, each child will feel satisfaction working at his or her own rate of progress.

What Other People Said...

"My daughter has been at Northstar since she was 2 years old and started in the Toddler Program. She is now in the final year of the Casa Program and my son has taken her place in the Toddler Room. I can’t say enough about how Northstar has gone above and beyond to ensure their success. The school takes an individual approach to each student, recognizing that each child learns in their own way and at their own pace. My daughter has excelled in this non competitive environment and is outperforming her circle of peers who are older than her in the public system. She has a love for learning and truly enjoys working with the Montessori materials. The Casa Program does a great job of ensuring that the students really understand what they are learning. The Toddler and Pre Casa Programs are both nurturing and educational and truly set the stage for learning at the higher levels. My son at just a year and a half has shown great independence as well as the ability to follow direction and play well in a group setting. The school has done a great job of balancing both the social and academic needs of the child which in my opinion is key to their success." - Shelley
