Our Montessori Curriculum

At Rushmore House Montessori preschool we use an extended curriculum covering both Montessori and EYFS activities. The curriculum consists of seven learning areas. Children are gradually introduced to the activities in each area. These areas are:

The Activities of Everyday Living are the main link between home and the preschool. Sensorial, also known as Education of the Senses, is about understanding colour, size, flavour, smell, pitch, texture and weight. Literacy is listening and attention to stories, recognising text, alphabet and blending , mark making, drawing, good pencil control. We teach reading with Montessori phonics which is also known as Synthetic Phonics. Mathematics is learning maths the Montessori way. The Cultural learning area is about understanding the world around us. Creativity is making, and expressing ourselves. The Physical learning area is about developing whole body balance and coordination. Our outdoor play areas and Forest School are ideal environments for physical development.
