As a Children’s House we support parents to encourage their children to have a love of language.  We actively promote a love of words, stories and reading as central to our learning and development plan.

Montessori Language Curriculum

The ‘Communication Skills’ curriculum area aims to develop the four aspects of language:

1)  Oral expression, that is, self-expression through the spoken word.

2)  Aural ability, that is, listening skills.

3)  Writing, that is, self-expression through the written word.

4)  Reading.

Development of oral expression is achieved through story-telling, songs, poems, drama, vocabulary building, contributing ideas and expressing logical thought.  New language is introduced with every activity.

Development of aural ability is achieved through news, response and sounds games e.g. I Spy, sounds in the environment and music.

Development of writing is achieved through early mark making leading to the correct formation of letters; correct positioning of letters, creative writing, spelling and grammar.

Development of reading is based on a progression from phonics to a variety of reading strategies focussed around fluency, meaning, interpretation, speed and enjoyment.  Reading with your children, giving books and visiting the library all support this important area.

  • Eat with your children - model how to eat and make it a relaxed family time.
  • Offer food on the table in bowls, let them serve themselves.
  • Try hard not to talk in front of the child about foods they don't like - be really positive and go on offering the offending food.
  • Prepare food with them - fruit salad, sandwiches / wraps, mashing bananas etc. They will normally eat what they make.
  • Make cleaning up fun - use small sponges and a step to reach the sink.
  • Provide a low mirror so your child can wipe their own face.
  • Grow some vegetables - even in a small pot. They will eat what they grow.
  • and remember..... we all have things we don't like to eat!

1.The Montessori Method has been around for over 100 years - the approach works!

2. It fosters and supports independence - children want to ‘do it themselves’ and are encouraged to do so.

3. A friendly attitude towards error - children ask for help when they need it.

4. Responsibility is fostered - for themselves, the environment and their group.

5. The method supports each unique child to reach their own amazing potential!
