Music Instruction at The Montessori School

Music

The daily schedule at The Montessori School includes collective gathering for creative expressions, movement activities, songs, stories and group lessons.  When weather permits, the children are taken outdoors to play on outdoor equipment, to enjoy games and to help with gardening activities.

The enrichment programs are aimed at the creation of the whole child not just one academically gifted. These programs supplement the academic environment and allow for a variety of activities to take place on a daily basis.  These programs include:

  • Computer Instruction
  • Music Instruction
  • Reading Programs in our Extensive Library

The musical literacy of the child is accomplished by affording ongoing opportunities to listen, to sing, to compose, to perform, and to appreciate music.  

Music instruction is an integral part of the day-to-day Montessori curriculum. To help enhance the development of rhythm, coordination, tonal relationships, and harmony, the Montessori-trained teacher uses musical instruments to help children develop skills in a series of steps from auditory discrimination to musical notation and composition.

How Montessori Schools Differ From Other Schools

If you have heard of Montessori schools, then you have probably heard a little of their unique ideas on education and their new approach to the school system and structure. 

The Montessori Method was developed in the early 1900s, by the Italian educator, Maria Montessori, who felt that children had a natural drive for learning, as well as self-direction.  Nowadays, Montessori schools have developed as private elementary schools, not as a trademark, but as an applied method integrated into certain educational systems. 

Yet, these new methods in education always raise questions among parents, especially among parents who want to make sure that their children are being given every advantage. 

Questions about the Montessori Method, such as why children should start so young—children can enroll as young as six weeks and some schools offer Montessori daycare—or how do children adapt as they graduate from elementary school, are expected.  And one of the most frequently asked question is how does a Montessori school differ from a typical school?  

The Montessori method stresses freedom and independence, and the aim is that a child is enabled to work with stimulating and intriguing activities at their own pace and as accords to their own interests.  There is an understanding that these practices will help that child to develop independence and self-discipline.  At a Montessori school, the emphasis is on cognitive and social development through active participation. The classroom itself is structurally different, and class groups range in age.

The Montessori school might be the best elementary school for your child.  If you are living in the Allen, Texas area, you can find out more about the Montessori School mission and learn more about our school, just newly opened and ready to take your young, bright minds and lead them into the future.

Is Montessori Daycare Right for Your Child?

Kids

Montessori is one of the most popular new teaching methods being offered in private schools around the country.  The method was developed by an Italian educator—Maria Montessori—in the early 1900’s after her close observation of young students.

The Montessori Method promotes children learning at their own pace, by their own drive to explore and understand the world around them.  A Montessori classroom encourages freedom and independence, with the belief that these both will help develop problem-solving skills and self-discipline among the students. 

Though Montessori is often offered as a private elementary school, you can also find Montessori daycare for your younger children.  In fact, it is often suggested that students start to learn through the Montessori Method at a young age, when their developing minds are so prime for learning.

Some private elementary schools employing the Montessori Method ask for children to begin as young as three years old.  The spontaneous learning that occurs at this age, and the open and free environment of the Montessori classroom, is perfect for developing children.  Children are in such a sensitive period of learning in their early years—developing motor skills, social skills, cognitive skills, the whole gamut of necessary abilities—that the rich experiences offered at the Montessori school, and employed in Montessori daycare, might be the perfect thing for your child.

If you want to learn more about the Montessori Method, you can read excerpts of the Montessori book, The Joyful Child.
