Montessori Work Cycle (MF): Individual work with the Montessori material according to the age, capability and interest of each child.
Guided Sequence (GS):The social aspect within the circle time is very important, we discuss various topics, sing songs, celebrate birthdays, etc.
Lunch Break (MP): After lunch we address the needs of the group. During this time, children are able to go to the nearby playground, play on the balcony, look at books in our cozy reading corner, listen to stories, or pursue any other silent activity.
Cooking & Baking: Cooking in a group strengthens a child’s social behaviour skills and guides them towards independence. The children try out many great recipes and allowing them to work with various kitchen appliances leaves them excited for their afternoon snack time where they are able to have a taste of their culinary creations. Through cooking the children learn so many interesting facts about nutrition and a healthy diet.
Forest: A Forest Nest which was specially created for our children enables them to have a place where they can make new experiences and engage in new adventures. Through the spacious area around us. the children are able to move freely. This allows them to have the opportunity to become a part of nature and explore the wonderful flora and fauna in the area. The forest afternoon also promotes the children’s social behaviour, creativity, concentration, coordination as well as their gross and fine motor skills.
Gymnastics: The children are able to refine their control of movement skills by exercising, doing challenging skill-courses and playing games with various objects such as balls, ropes, hoops etc. in the gymnasium in Lenzburg. During the gym lesson they are able to experiment and challenge themselves and learn how to control and refine their movement skills. Our gymnastic lessons are suitable for children of all ages and are just what they need! Sports and movement belong to our everyday culture, movement promotes and lays a foundation for the training of each child’s gross and fine motor skills and also promotes the individual development of each child.
Music & Ukulele: During our music lesson the children sing songs in different languages and accompany themselves with basic musical instruments. We will also teach the children how to move and dance to different rhythms. Music helps to promote the mental development of the child, strengthens their ability to learn and concentrate better, as well as helps to improve the coordination between both halves of the brain.
A Ukulele lesson is also included in the music lesson. The children learn to and accompany their favourite songs whilst playing on the Soprano Ukulele.
Arts and Crafts, Painting Studio: During this afternoon we offer the child to have the possibility of working with clay, wood, fabrics, paint, and many other varieties of materials. The variety of materials offered help stimulate the child’s visual, olfactory, gustatory, auditory and tactile sense which then results in a work of art created by the child.
In the Painting Studio the children are able to feel like little Picassos and let their creativity run wild. We teach the children to paint using various painting techniques (brush, cork, toothbrushes, etc.). The painting workshop encourages creativity and strengthens the personality of a child.
