Clifton Grammar Junior & Senior School’s Montessori is a well-known Montessori in the vicinity and it is known as “Sunrise Montessori”. The Montessori is run on the pure methods as taught by Dr. Maria Montessori. One distinguishing feature of Sunrise Montessori at the preschool age is that children direct their own learning, choosing among the sections of a well-structured and stocked classroom including Practical Life (fine and gross motor skill development), Sensorial (sensory and brain development), Language, Math, Geography, Science and Art.
The goal of Sunrise Montessori is to cultivate proficient, responsible, adaptive children who are constant learners and problem solvers. The Sunrise Montessori offers learning in an inquiring, cooperative, nurturing atmosphere. Children amplify their own knowledge through self- and teacher-initiated experiences while they also learn by manipulating materials and interacting with others. These significant experiences are precursors to the abstract understanding of ideas. A child, at Sunrise Montessori, is considered as a whole. The physical, emotional, social and cognitive needs and interests are always together and equally vital.
