Inter-curricular

Where Learning and Fun Go Hand-In-Hand

As part of Manotick Montessori’s commitment to provide the very best in learning, we promise to provide a holistic early childhood education which includes the physical, psychological, social and emotional development of a child.

Choir image

Choir

This program is unique to our school and is taught to both Toddler and Casa age groups. Our music is always very unique, interesting and diverse. Children absolutely love choir! This creative environment gives them the opportunity to express themselves dramatically and participation in the creative arts helps them have a balanced early childhood education. It encourages self-confidence and promotes self-awareness.

Yoga

All age groups take part in our yoga program. Yoga strengthens and helps developing bodies become more flexible and coordinated. This program helps enhance self-awareness and children learn early to tune into their bodies. When practicing yoga, they learn ways to relax and get control of stress in their lives through breathing techniques and meditation.

Art

Art is taught in various mediums, and can use a variety of materials such as finger paint, chalk, coloured pencils, crayons, sticks, glue, goo, glitter, clay, paper cups, etc. The list goes on and on because our instructors never run out of creative art ideas or sensorial messy activities for the children to get their hands into. We believe art is a necessity in every child’s life.

Physical Activities image

Physical Activities

All children attending our centre participate in Physical Activities each week in order to gain fine and gross motor skills. For Toddlers, the focus is developing balance and coordination while using items such as balls, tricycles and balance beams. For the Casa classes, along with developing balance, coordination and strength, the children also develop the skills for working as a team to complete obstacle courses, relay races and various other games. During the warmer months, the Casa group may participate in outdoor gym by going on nature walks, running the hill or other fun outdoor activities. In the winter, you may find them tobogganing on the hill or making use of the dance studio in the lower level of the building for our gym classes.

French Theory Program image

French Theory Program

In the afternoons, Manotick Montessori offers French Theory for the full-day Casa program at no extra cost! Our French Program is a wonderful way for your child to gain additional exposure to the French language. The program is separate from the morning French lesson in that the children learn advanced French material such as letter identification, syllables and will eventually be reading French words. During these sessions, children focus on increasing their vocabulary through the use of materials, songs and games. This program will be a great starter for those entering into the Immersion Program.

For our regular program, Toddlers have 15-minute lessons per day and Casa have 30-minute lessons. French is taught through stories, songs and games. Our French instructor speaks mostly in French during the class as well as in the hallway and outside to provide as much French dialogue as possible.

WeeMove™ image

WeeMove™

It is no surprise that studies have proven that getting children moving is not just good for health, but it also boosts cognitive skills, academic performance and mental well-being. WeeMove™, our proprietary physical literacy program, was developed around this research to incorporate intentional physical fitness into the learning curriculum. The program is designed to engage the child on multiple levels, to make learning fun and instill a love of movement. Set to music and generally taught outdoors, children will participate in this program twice a day, four days a week. When the weather doesn’t cooperate, the program can also be run indoors.

What Sets Us Apart

Our Montessori curriculum is based on the teachings of Dr. Maria Montessori. Centred on self-directed activity, hands-on learning and collaborative play, the Montessori method develops independent thinking, motivation, persistence and discipline by allowing children to respond to their natural drive to work and learn.

Our dedicated and passionate early childhood educators deliver an innovative, engaging and proven curriculum that ignites a love of learning and inspires and encourages individuality in every Manotick child. Their nurturing and attentive approach offers each child a home-away-from-home experience.

Two-way communication is important. Monthly newsletters, report cards, parent interviews, open houses and our proprietary app (BrightPath Connect™) are designed to increase the interaction between our centres and families.

Children need nutrition to grow in both mind and body. Believing that food choices throughout childhood fuel life long eating habits, our menu is crafted by a Registered Nutritionist, is prepared in-house daily and reflects those beliefs.
