At Blooming Montessori Plus, we have a tactile garden which makes the children fall in love with nature and not just pictures. Children find out about the world through exploration and from a variety of sources, including their families and friends, the media, and through what they see and hear. Children need regular opportunities to learn about different ways of life, to be given accurate information and to develop positive and caring attitudes towards others.
Children must be supported in developing the knowledge, skills and understanding that help them to make sense of the world. Their learning must be supported through offering opportunities for them to use a range of tools safely; encounter creatures, people, plants and objects in their natural environments and in real-life situations; undertake practical ‘experiments’; and work with a range of materials.
During KUW, our children are able to understand the following:
Nature: Under the world and how things come into being, they also learn about the role of each party to life. Life cycle, living and non- living things, seasons, properties of object and other interesting theories.
Designing and Making: is about the ways in which children learn about the construction process and the tools and techniques that can be used to assemble materials creatively and safely.
Time: is about how children find out about past and present events relevant to their own lives or those of their families.
Place: is about how children become aware of and interested in the natural world, and find out about their local area, knowing what they like and dislike about it.
Communities: is about how children begin to know about their own and other people’s cultures in order to understand and celebrate the similarities and differences between them in a diverse society.
