Our Curriculum

Comprehensive Montessori Curriculum for Holistic Development

At Akira Montessori, our curriculum encompasses the entire spectrum of Montessori training, equipping your child with the essential skills needed for their transition to formal schooling. The five core Montessori subjects take center stage in our curriculum, emphasising hands-on learning through creative and enjoyable activities that foster enrichment and discovery.

We believe in nurturing well-rounded individuals, which is why our curriculum extends beyond the Montessori subjects. Your child will also be exposed to a wide range of other subjects, ensuring they develop a diverse skill set in preparation for formal schooling. By providing a holistic approach to education, we aim to cultivate a love for learning and equip your child with the necessary foundation to thrive academically and beyond.

Primary Years

During the Montessori Primary years, typically covering ages 3 to 6, children engage in a wide range of activities and experiences that foster holistic development. Here are some key areas of learning and development that children can expect to explore during this stage:

Children are encouraged to develop independence, coordination, and concentration through practical life activities such as pouring, dressing, cleaning, and food preparation. Help children to recognise sounds of the alphabet using the Sandpaper Letters. Activities that refine their senses and enhance their ability to discriminate and classify various stimuli, such as exploring different textures, colors, shapes, sounds, and scents. Activities like storytelling, vocabulary building, phonics, reading, and writing. The Montessori materials, such as the Sandpaper Letters and the Moveable Alphabet, aid in the development of literacy skills. Introduce consonant and vowel digraphs. Blend and read 3-letter words fluently. Regular exercises in grammar and vocabulary Master basic reading by applying phonetic knowledge to specially tailored books. Introduction of common aspects of primary school learning such as spelling, cloze passage and logical sequencing. Children are introduced to foundational mathematical concepts through hands-on materials like Number Rods, Golden Beads, and the Stamp Game. Support children in recognising numerals 1 to 10. They learn numeration, addition, subtraction, counting, and basic operations. Master mathematical concepts such as counting from 1 to 10 using materials such as Number Rods and Spindle Box. Familiarization with place values such as units, tens and hundreds using Golden Beads. Learn concepts of addition and subtraction using Short Bead Stair and Number Rods. Learn vertical addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Children explore various topics related to science, geography, history, botany, zoology, and cultural diversity. This fosters an appreciation for the world and encourages a global perspective. Physical development is promoted through activities that enhance fine motor skills (e.g., threading beads, using tweezers) and gross motor skills (e.g. movement exercises, yoga). The Montessori environment encourages cooperation, empathy, respect, and conflict resolution skills. Children learn to work collaboratively, take turns, and develop social relationships. Children engage in creative activities such as drawing, painting, sculpting, and music to foster self-expression, imagination, and aesthetic appreciation. Montessori principles support children in developing self-discipline, self-control, and the ability to make choices independently. It's important to note that the level of music education in the Montessori Primary years is introductory and lays the foundation for further exploration and development of musical skills in later stages. The focus is on fostering a love for music, developing a sense of rhythm, and promoting an appreciation for the expressive qualities of sound. Learn common topics such as money, time and energy.

It's important to note that the Montessori approach allows flexibility in pacing and caters to individual interests and needs. The emphasis is on the child's natural curiosity, self-motivation, and joy of learning.

Childcare Programmes 

Child-Centered Curriculum and Personalized Guidance

Extensive research has consistently highlighted the tactile and visual learning preferences of young children. At Akira, we have leveraged this understanding to shape a curriculum that is specifically tailored to suit the unique needs of each child. Our curriculum is carefully crafted to stimulate and engage children through materials that effectively reinforce and iterate key concepts.

One of the key factors enabling this personalized approach is our low child-to-teacher ratio. By maintaining smaller class sizes, we are able to provide each child with individualized attention and guidance. This ensures that they receive the support necessary to progress and achieve their learning goals. With our dedicated focus on each child, we strive to create an optimal learning environment where every child can thrive and reach their fullest potential.
