MUSIC & MONTESSORI COOPERATIVE PLAYGROUP.

Our school is excited to bring you our musical playgroup where kids won't also miss learning the basic academic skills!

We are a family-loved cooperative playschool.  A cooperative playgroup is a collaboration of teachers and parents who take an active interest in their first educational experience. Our class is handled by a Montessori trained teacher and a music professional. It is a mix of 1-3 & 3-5 year old children and is equipped with music instruments and Montessori materials. The parent or guardian takes the role as a teacher or a guide during the class. We follow the approach of a student-led education in a Montessori.

WE MAKE MUSIC THROUGH THEME-BASED APPROACH

A thematic curriculum is a popular and effective teaching method among playschools. Our kind of playschool practices thematic learning into the music class. Having a thematic repertoire of songs — about topics like shapes, colors, transportation, or a musical story integrated with counting concepts — can help support learning. The theme-based approach doesn’t have to be formal. Our classroom is oftentimes messy, chaotic. For in this chaos, there is collaboration, communication, creativity, and understanding among parents.

Our curriculum also includes introduction to rhythm and melody playing on the percussions, melodic bells, tone bars and xylophones. Did you know our music playing also aids academic learning? Counting is incorporated in the song like drumming the beat 1-4x. The kids are counting already! Or learning to play 1-3 notes on the melodic bells teaches them letter recognition, counting and even syllabication which supports early reading. See? Music is a very integral part of a child’s early education. This is because, children naturally responds to music even when they are still in the womb.  

WE MONTESSORI

Our Montessori play happens after the first music circle time. It provides an opportunity for children and their parents to come together in a specially prepared environment suited to the developmental needs of young children. This nurturing environment with specially designed materials and equipment is calm, ordered and enticing to children to explore and assist them in realising their full potential.

The focus of our program is to help children experience the joy of learning by facilitating their need for independence, order, movement, language and understanding of the world. Through the support and guidance of a facilitator, parents will increase their awareness of their child’s capabilities and need for independence. Parents will grow in their role as nurturing caregivers as they gain valuable parenting knowledge about Montessori principles including what experiences they can offer their child in the home environment.

Here's a sample timeline for a 1-hour class:

15-minute Singing and movement & story telling
