The Montessori philosophy drives our curriculum; this curriculum is the foundation for the tools and materials used in Li'l Caterpillars. Each material has been designed and created keeping in mind the necessity to bind the curriculum objectives and our philosophy. Our teachers have been trained intensively on this philosophy, curriculum and the materials. Thus, all 4 components are interwoven to result in an early learning program that will aid in nurturing children who are not only academically equipped, but also socially adept with clarity of thought.
Knowing what to do and be capable of doing it is perhaps what results in a happy child. Out of this joy comes self-confidence and willingness to soldier on. If such a child is equipped with the right tools, then there can be no stopping.
Research has proven that early education is critical because:
Early years (2 to 6) are a unique stage of phenomenal brain development and learning in a child. The capacity to absorb concepts and learn is at its peak during this phase.
Hence it is important to expose the child to a structured environment, which will provide an adequate and appropriate stimulus for learning.
Every child has an innate intelligence that is unique. This uniqueness is the most important factor to consider when the child comes to school.
