Practical Life & Art

Practical Life is the cornerstone of the Montessori Method and is the building block for all other subjects such as Sensorial, Math, Language and Cultural in primary classroom. It consists of simple, daily activities using objects and tools which are familiar for them.

The purpose of Practical Life is to provide both physical and developmental skills: coordination, concentration, independence, order, and fine and gross motor skills.

In our Art area, we focus on the process and not the product. Children are able to express themselves through their art using play-doh, paint, pastels, scissors, among other tools.
