Montessori

The toddler program is for children between the ages of 18 to 30 months.

At As-Sadiq, our program is designed to promote learning and development through a balance of structure and free play. Children are given the opportunity to play, learn and explore; independently, in small group settings and as a large group. The aim is to allow the children to develop their language, gross motor, fine motor, cognitive, social and emotional skills through a variety of activities.
Daily outdoor activities encourage social development, providing the children the ability to interact with others and also allow for proper physical development.

Toddlers are introduced to our academic program through the Montessori approach. Phonetic sounds and numbers are taught to the children along with giving them the opportunity to explore and work with the sensorial materials.
Our loving and nurturing teachers aim to provide an environment that is stimulating, safe and happy; an environment that will help children have a healthy and smooth transition from home to school.

The Preschool program is for children between the ages of 2.5 to 4 years.

The Preschool program follows the Montessori approach.  Children are introduced to the 5 areas of learning which include Practical Life, Sensorial, Math, Language and Culture.  The program allows children to choose activities from within the prescribed range of options.  They are provided uninterrupted work time and specialized Montessori materials are made available to all children in order to enhance their physical, intellectual and personal growth.

Again, through a balance of structure and free play, the children are exposed to a variety of materials that facilitate independence throughout their daily routines.

The Montessori program aims at the development of the whole child. The program is divided into 5 different areas of learning. They are:

  1. Practical Life
  2. Sensorial
  3. Language
  4. Math
  5. Culture

The aim of the Practical Life materials is to facilitate independence, fine and gross motor skills and hand eye coordination. The overall purpose of the Sensorial materials is the refinement of the senses, classification of sensorial expressions and to help in perceiving problems that children might have. 21/2 to 6 years is a sensitive period for Language. The Language materials help with the overall development of language by gaining maximum benefit from the environment and enriching the child’s vocabulary and language. The exercises in Math open the door to the world of numbers. The Math area is divided into groups of exercises, Numbers to ten, Decimal system, Collective exercises, Teens and Tens, Exploration and Memorization of numbers, Transitional materials and Fractions. The Culture area in the Montessori classroom is very vast. It covers History, Geography, Botany, Zoology, Science experiments, Art, French and for As-Sadiq Islamic School, Islamic Studies and Arabic.

A typical day in a Montessori class

A typical day in a Montessori class would begin at 8:30 a.m. The children would be greeted and welcomed by their teachers. A short morning circle would follow in which the children would be involved in discussing the weather, calendar, the theme for the month etc. After the circle, they would begin working with the Montessori materials. While the children would be working with the Montessori materials, the Montessori Teacher would go around presenting new materials to the children as she deemed appropriate. The children would also be taking a break in between for morning snack. There would be outdoor play/arts and crafts (relating to the theme) as well. At 11:30 a.m. the children will have lunch in their class under the supervision of their teacher. After lunch, the students will resume their Montessori Work. At 3:00 p.m. they will have their afternoon snack and will be dismissed at 3:40 p.m.

As-Sadiq Montessori will offer Islamic Studies, Arabic and Qur’an along with the complete Montessori curriculum to your child. The Islamic Studies, Arabic and Qur’an curriculum is available upon request. The Montessori Teachers will be incorporating the Islamic Studies curriculum in their monthly themes. For instance, if it is the month of Ramadhan, the teachers will discuss fasting, eid etc. Crafts will be made in relation to the theme.

Uniform is mandatory for all students.

Note: Your child must be 2 1/2 years old in September to be eligible for the Montessori program. He/She should be fully toilet trained which also means no Pull-up’s.
