It is a program to support new and inexperienced mothers traverse the unfamiliar terrain of motherhood and to strengthen the mother child bond whilst keeping the focus on learning together and enhancing parenting skills and knowledge.
The Mom n Me program is conducted thrice in a week on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 10:00 am to 11:30 am. The activities included in the program are:
It is a wonderful opportunity for the parents to observe their tiny “sensorial explorers” at work and experience “Montessori in a nutshell”. You and your child will be in a Montessori classroom, experience some of the typical daily activities, and learn from an experienced Montessori professional.
Manipulative and creative play:
Manipulatives and table toys give children the opportunity to develop their fine motor skills while exploring different numbers, shapes, and colors. Instead of always saying no-no, learn to engage your little one’s instinct to reach out and grab with a few manipulative activities. When you’ve had it up to your elbows with your toddler’s constant need to pick up everything that isn’t nailed down, simply turn his behavior into a fun-filled game.
Music and movement:
Children of all ages express themselves through music. Research has found that learning music facilitates learning other subjects and enhances skills that children inevitably use in other areas. Children who learn music will have an increased IQ, will be good at Math and their brain works harder. The good thing about music and movement activities? You don’t need to be able to play an instrument or have a stunning voice. Fun activities will be incorporated that give the benefits of both music and the movement necessary for the child such as:
- Parachute play
- Dance with ribbons
- Move egg shakers
- Play a drum
- Play a xylophone
Lapsit story time:
Reading is an important and fun activity to experience with your child. Reading books with your child is a great place to begin learning. There are so many benefits to the time spent reading to your child, listening to them read to you, and talking about the story afterwards. An understanding of the difference between pictures and words and the concept of “words” is developed as you point to them while you read to your child.
Art and craft:
Art is one of the many ways children express themselves. Art is a way of communication of their feelings. The process of making art such as scribbling and painting improves the fine motor skills. Art also strengthens visual learning and enhances memory and language development. Enjoy pre-planned fun art activities with your child such as colouring, painting, gluing, sticking etc.
