CMS Leadership Program

CMS’ Three-year Montessori Program Explained

CMS' Montessori education consists of a three-year curriculum designed to teach children from 24 months to Pre-K. The monthly themes are as follows:

In the first year (Primary class), children focus on mastering rudimentary content; in the second year (Primary class), they develop a more in-depth understanding of the content; in the third year (Pre-K class), the children are able to expand their understanding further and ultimately blossom in their Montessori leadership education through a culmination of everything they have learned.

Each month's curriculum is like a different building based on the foundation called a STONE. The two foundational pillars of the Biblical Word of God and Monthly Themes are erected based on the STONE. Everything in the building is delivered to children through the Montessori Method.

Let's take April as an example, which is the month when the subject of Botany will be explored.

In their first year, students learn the parts of a plant through song. Additionally, they learn the names of common flowers. Students will have the opportunity to plant a seed and watch it grow. Many students love this gardening experience.

Parts of a Tree

In the second year, students learn about the many different structural aspects of a tree and the shapes of leaves with the Montessori Botany Cabinet. After this lesson, they will have the opportunity to take each leaf inset from the Botany Cabinet outside to do a scavenger hunt for the different shapes of leaves.

After these kinds of real-life activities, the children become much more observant of the different shapes of leaves when they see a tree outside. This is a sign that the sharpness of the eye is developing.

Leaf Shape Scavenger Hunt

The child learns about oxygen and carbon dioxide in the third year with several hands-on experiments. They learn that we breathe in oxygen and breathe out carbon dioxide. Human beings need oxygen. On the other hand, trees need carbon dioxide, and they breathe out oxygen.

This kind of learning helps children realize the importance of trees to human beings. Previously, young children could not see any relationship between trees and themselves. To young children, trees are trees, while they are human beings. However, this learning of the relationship between trees and human beings allows young children to develop a deeper understanding of the symbiotic relationship between humans and plant life. The children begin to understand the importance of plant life and that all living beings on Earth do not randomly exist but were purposefully designed by God to live harmonious lives.

In the third year, children also have an opportunity to watch videos showing how paper is made from trees. Through this exposure, they begin to recognize the importance of reduce, reuse, and recycle. After these lessons, you may find that your child will "nag" at you to turn off the water while brushing your teeth. They begin to act like an "Environmental Steward," a true leader of the Earth.
