You can be assured that they will always be treated with mutual respect and care. I can say that God has been so gracious and kind that He has led us so far victoriously. The birth of Whizkids Montessori Schoolhouse in the year 2007 was not accidental, God has provided in so many ways, from just 60 students when we started and it has grown to almost 300 within two years.

MONTESSORI EDUCATION – What is it?
This system of education is both a philosophy of child growth and a rationale for guiding such growth. It is based on the
child’s developmental needs, exposure to materials and experiences through which to develop intelligence as well as physical and
The Practical Life section lays the foundation for all other work to be done in the classroom. The activities
are everyday tasks that a child needs to learn to master the care of self and care of the environment. Such activities include pouring,
sweeping and tying, as well as grace and courtesy. The activities are presented to the child in such a way that concentration, coordination,
independence and order are developed.
The goal of the Montessori Sensorial section is to educate the child’s senses. This curriculum area contains
Montessori-specific materials that help the child refine his or her experience of sight, sound, touch, taste and smell.
Montessori language curriculum is an integrated approach that combines phonetics and whole language. The child \
is first introduced to letters and sounds. After several sounds are mastered, he can begin to encode (spell) and decode (read) words by linking these sounds together. Words that do not follow the patterns or rules of the English language are presented as sight words. Once the
child has gained confidence with his language skills, he can use it to enhance his studies in other areas of the classroom.
Mathematics in the Montessori classroom can be separated into a few major categories: beginning counting,
advanced counting, the decimal system, rational numbers (fractions), and the operations of addition, multiplication, subtraction and division.
Concepts are presented in a very concrete way so that children 3-6 are not only able to count, but skip count, and work with numbers in the
thousands. Once the child has a firm foundation in the operations of addition, multiplication, subtraction and division,
memorization of facts is introduced.
