“Because the first years of life are forever”

85% of the brain is formed by age 3

EDUCATION FROM BIRTH

If we touch children, we touch humanity. We must educate adults to realize that we can only better humanity through the child. We must realize that the child is the builder of the man.

Consciousness does not exist from the beginning; in every child it has to be built up anew in the first years of life

The child’s type of mind is an absorbing mind; it absorbs whatever is around it. Children begin to absorb everything of their environment from the beginning of their lives. It is a mind endowed with special psychic powers, which we lose later.

The first years of life are period of huge transformation. They are times of great difficulty, times when character is formed.

PLAYGROUP MENTOR

Playgroup is guided by Margarita. Margarita holds AMI 0-3 and 3-6 Assistant Certificate. And participating in AMI 0-3 diploma course.

Margarita is Occupational therapist from Latvia. She has been working as an Occupational Therapist with adults and children. Margarita gave birth in October 2021 and the Montessori group suspended work for some time, so the classes are not taking place right now.

Margarita is training in Holland with Patricia Wallner on the Assistant to Infancy level, she is working extensively with the 0-3 programme and will be an AMI teacher on the Assistant to Infancy level.

Her desire is to open Montessori childcare where a person will be seen with a deep aim, who can distribute his attention and organization on things given to him; such a person will do something in the world.

GOAL OF THE PLAYGROUP

Support the development of the child by assisting him in prepared Montessori environment. 

Children under 3 are going through a stage of rapid brain and skill development. For optimum development, young children need a stimulating environment to play and learn. Playgroups offer babies and toddlers a wide variety of early learning experiences.

Playgroup is a great way for your child to learn about the world, make friends and develop social skills. Playgroup also gives mummies, dads, grandparents and caregivers a chance to share ideas and experiences. Many long-term friendships begin at Playgroup.

PLAYGROUP DURATION

Each lesson includes:

Free activity in the Montessori environment for 60 minutes.
Individual work in the Montessori environment with materials and toys for fine motor skills and self-service skills, language, sensory skills, coordination of movements and a sense of order.

Music circle in English (15-30 minutes).
We are singing, dancing, playing finger games.

Snack. Your child can sit with others on the table and have some snack

AREAS OF EXPLORATION

Practical life activities. Practical life activities offer the children active participation and collaboration in the aspects of care of self and care of the environment, and preparation of food.

Language. In the language prepared area the children learn the language. All the activities the child engages in become a language lesson, because the child absorbs the language he hears.

Fine Motor skills area. Coordination of hand movements is essential for building intelligence. Maria Montessori called the hand of the child “the second brain”.

Movement. The more the child moves, the more connections neurons make in the brain, so movement makes your child smarter!

Music/Art. Art and music help to integrate both parts of the brain.
