The FMA Transition program is for children ages 18 months to 36 months. The children at this age are very curious and begin asking the question “WHY”. They are very mobile, have established relationships and are confident of doing several things on their own. The children are being potty trained and can communicate their needs to a teacher quite easily. The focus of this program is to build their attention span and fine motor skills. Children in this classroom do lots of practical life and sensorial works. Once the children are potty trained and can stay focused on their work, they are ready to move on to the preschool class.
The Transition room is a typical Montessori environment carefully prepared to entice the children to learn and explore. The materials are placed on easy to reach open shelves and the children are given the freedom to choose and explore concepts or ideas that are of interest to them. There is a curriculum, routine and structure that contribute to an environment conducive to learning.
The daily schedule established in this class is very structured. Most of the morning time is spent on Sensorial, Practical Life and Cultural education. There is a compulsory naptime in the afternoon. The children have Music or Yoga Class as part of their curriculum in the mornings. The children are allowed free time to play either indoors or outdoors. Towards the later part of the afternoon, the children can explore their interests or listen to stories during circle time.
The ratio of children to teacher is 10 to one. The child's daily activities are recorded by the teacher. Food/Snacks are given to the child as per the routine established in the school and in consultation with the parents. Each child has his or her own sleeping area. All items provided by parents such as diapers, wipes, pull-ups, and blankets are labelled and stored.
Daily Schedule is posted outside classroom.
