At this age, the children are much more receptive and are eager to learn new concepts. During this age, there is a lot of focus on improving fine muscle development through Montessori mode. Throughout the day children make self-directed actions (but carefully guided choices), participate in small group activities, take part in circle time and build the confidence needed to try new things. Children enjoy free play to allow creativity and imagination to flourish. Teachers facilitate opportunities for children to engage in reading, writing, listening, and speaking using poems, fingerplays, puppets, singing, and rhyming.
