2. Sensorial Development:

The sensorial avenue of the Montessori curriculum is the building block of math and language. The activities of sensorial lessons include sorting colors, textures, sizes, and shapes using materials that are kinesthetic. Touch and physical understanding of these concepts help children to organize the sensorial impressions. These materials have a built-in lesson and a control of error, meaning the child can check their own work. This allows the child to develop the self-discipline to understand, analyze, and solve problems independently, which builds self-esteem. Sensorial development helps enlarge the child’s field of perception which is the foundation for intellectual growth. Dr. Montessori believed that sensorial development assists in developing a clear and deep understanding of concepts rather than simply memorizing them. Children at an early age begin to grasp the concepts of distinction, discernment, categorization, and master one abstraction at a time. This work then extends to science, geography, music, and culture. We will help your child build the foundation they’ll need to confidently explore academic concepts.
