GMS Classrooms & Curricula
When visiting a Montessori classroom, you will discover a wide range of activities as children of different age groups work independently and cooperatively. You will observe students who have the discipline, the confidence, and the willingness to apply themselves to a chosen task. The classroom reflects an environment specifically tailored to each child’s needs.
Throughout the classroom are attractive Montessori materials, designed to be self-teaching, self-correcting and progressively challenging. Our Montessori teachers act as facilitators, encouraging active learning and determining which new lessons and materials should be presented to each child.
You will find that the Montessori classroom is a place where the joy of learning comes naturally.
Toddler children (18 – 36 months) are offered optimal bilingual learning opportunities in language, sensorial education, practical life, cultural activities, science, mathematics, art, music and movement – which indirectly refine motor skills, auditory and visual development, concentration, social and intellectual skills.
Preschool (Casa) children (ages 3 to 6) are taught language arts, mathematics, practical life activities, sensorial education, science, geography, history, physical education, music, art, and French.
Elementary children (ages 6-12) follow the Montessori curriculum, which surpasses guidelines set by the Ontario Ministry of Education. The Montessori bilingual elementary curriculum includes language and literary arts, mathematics, geography, history, economics, science, technology, art, music, drama, physical education, computer skills and a comprehensive French program.
Montessori Mediated Learning (MML) is designed for children ages 6 to 12, who are advanced learners with specific needs and require mediated learning with low teacher-to-student ratios in a Montessori learning environment. Our MML program incorporates Dr. Feuerstein’s Instrumental Enrichment in conjunction with Montessori pedagogy to enhance children’s cognitive functions for academic learning and achievement. Dr. Feuerstein’s Instrumental Enrichment “helps students learn how to learn and provides them with the concepts, skills, strategies, operations, and techniques necessary to function as successful, independent learners.”
