At Arts Junior Montessori, we believe children grow best in an environment that stimulates learning. Our wide variety of facilities ensure that your child is learning and playing in a safe yet engaging environment. From spacious classrooms for focussed desk-work to an elaborate indoor playground, we take pride in the environment we have curated for your child to spend his/her best years.
Our indoor playground was designed so the children will be eager and excited to come back to preschool each day. It comes fully equipped with a range of play equipment to allow children to actively exercise their body's full range of motions. Here, children can exercise, play, and stay active year-round without worrying about rain, haze, or the blazing heat of Singapore's equatorial sun. No matter how small, our children are treated as important individuals with unique personalities. In our clean and calm nursery room, they learn to hold their own thoughts and opinions and express themselves clearly. Rather than crying or getting angry, children develop into discerning and elegant persons of character, beaming with the brightest of smiles. The role of teachers is not to control the children's movements, but to prepare a good environment and to draw out whatever it is the children really want to do. In a carefully prepared environment, the teacher helps guide children toward their naturally calm and inquisitive state.
As children spend so much of their day in the nursery room, we are dedicated to make it comfortable and inviting. At Montessori, we believe children absorb information from the environment around them to grow. Our nursery room, therefore, is filled with intellectually stimulating elements essential to this formative period in the child's life. In this environment, children naturally become absorbed in grappling with challenges and jobs they set for themselves, thereby broadening their interests and having fun in the process.
We have prepared a calm place for children to talk through and resolve their difficulties when they quarrel with friends.
A healthy and tasty homemade lunch supports children's growth, when eaten daily. We use freshly-polished Japanese rice and a rich array of delicious ingredients to prepare meals and snacks that are not only healthy but also educate children about nutrition. In this way, we provide the foundation for good eating habits and the nourishment for a long and healthy life.
In addition to cooking basics, the Children's Kitchen provides a wealth of practical lessons, from reading and writing recipes and instructions to counting, measuring, dividing, and estimating. The kitchen is a much more effective for learning than sitting at your desk, and much more fun and practical.
The children's bathrooms are bright and clean. They provide a spot children are excited to go and make potty training easy and fun.
