Where Learning and Fun Go Hand-In-Hand
As part of Montessori by BrightPath'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.
Music & Art
Music and Art are an essential component of a quality, early learning curriculum. Manotick provides a wide array of self-choice art, dramatic expression and group art projects to enhance the creativity of our children. They enjoy exposure to music instruments from around the world along with daily music and movement activities.
Enrichment programs (tweak by location)
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.
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 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.
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.
