“The child is both a hope and a promise for mankind” – Dr. Maria Montessori
Culture is the child’s first introduction to cross-curriculum activities in the classroom. Each term, at Little Woods Montessori Pre-School, is defined by a theme. Themes cultivate a sense of cultural diversity, awareness and affective concerns for each individual child. Bringing culture into the early childhood education process can have long terms positive effects on a child’s development
Science, history and geography are interlinked in our themes through ‘Show and Tell’, specially classified cards, photographs, experiments and even Powerpoint presentations by children, teachers and parents.
The term’s theme is then reinforced through a field trip and an exhibition. Recent themes included ‘Rivers of the World’ which was consolidated with a trip to the River Safari; ‘Music and Art’ was proudly presented by the children through a Music Recital and an Art Exhibition where they showcased their representations of the famous artists like Eric Carle, Monet, Picasso and Van Gogh to name a few.
