Curriculum


Dingka’s is a child-centred school that adheres to Maria Montessori’s principles, where children learn through a range of fun and age appropriate activities. Is it our aim is that each child is treated with respect in a structured classroom setting.
Children experience a learning environment that encourages independence and confidence. We encourage children to work at their individual ability and develop at their own pace.
It is important to us that your child begins their learning journey in a safe setting to encourage life long learning.

 

Practical Life

 Exercises for practical life are simple Montessori activities which adults perform daily in order to maintain control of the environment in which they live and work.  By imitating the activities, it is the child’s way of adapting to the world around him and constructing reality.
 

Sensorial

The aim of the Montessori Sensorial is to educate the child’s senses.  This curriculum area contains specific Montessori materials and activities that can help the child refine his or her experience of sight, sound touch taste and smell.

    .

Language Development

The Montessori environment is rich in oral language opportunities, allowing the child to experience. Sandpaper letters help children link sound and symbol effortlessly, encouraging the development of written expression and reading skills.

Mathematics

These activities help children learn and understand the concepts of maths by manipulating concrete materials.
