EARLY-CHILDHOOD: Three to Five Years
The Kingwood Montessori Early-Childhood (Pre-School) program is based upon a profound respect for the child's personality. The child works following his or her own interests and is allowed a large measure of independence which forms the basis of self-discipline. As each child progresses and successfully completes the self-correcting manipulative exercises, he or she develops confidence in his or her innate abilities. Sensorial exercises assist the child with the ability to discriminate, refine, and sharpen their senses, as well as for accurate judgments on perceptual experiences (size, shape, weight, color, sound, etc.). The practical life exercises help the child to master daily life activities while refining motor control.
