Green group area

(3 years old)

Green group area is designed with the Practical life Montessori theme which includes life skills to help develop independence, coordination, concentration, self-control, self-awareness, confidence and it as well includes:

  • Care of Self (food preparation, dressing, washing),
  • Care of Environment (cleaning, gardening, care of pets, environmentalism),
  • Grace and Courtesy (greetings, manners, social interactions),
  • Control of Movement (refining movements, walking the line, moving quietly).

There is an aquarium in the area and plants for the children to take care of as part of their Practical learning theme.

All our environments and group rooms are designed with lots of rich Montessori learning materials as well as Free Play learning materials to suit the Rich Finnish Curriculum.

(However, children are still allowed to play, learn and explore in the other learning environments without any age or group restrictions.)

Sensorial activities allows the child to refine each of their senses:

  • Sight (visual),
  • Touch (tactile),
  • Smell (olfactory),
  • Taste (gustatory)
  • Sound (auditory)
  • Stereognostic (kinaesthetic).

This includes the manipulation of specifically designed materials that isolates qualities. Refines fine motor skills, visual and auditory senses and develops coordination and the ability to order and classify. Materials include Pink Tower, Brown Stairs, Knobbed Cylinders, Colour Tablets.


There is a piano in this section where the children are able to listen to calm instrumental music. The children from time to time have their rooms made into sensory environments with sensory sounds like forest sounds, water sounds, birds chirping etc.

Language is based on phonetic awareness. Children work through specific hands-on and tactile language materials such as the sandpaper letters to the moveable alphabet. Language is not an isolated topic but runs through the curriculum. The spoken language is the foundation for writing and then reading.

Mathematics is developed with the use of concrete learning materials. The sensorial area is the preparation for mathematics. Hands-on materials are used such as number rods, sandpaper numbers, number boards, spindle box, number tiles, beads, and games. Each exercise builds upon another and the child gradually moves to and from concrete to abstract areas such as place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication, and fractions.

Culture allows the child to explore the natural world around them and it includes:

  • Geography (continents, landforms, earth layers, solar system),
  • Zoology (classification, physiology of animals),
  • Botany (ecology, classification, physiology of plants),
  • History (time lines, using a calendar),
  • Science.

Art and music could be considered cultural activities, however, creativity is encouraged across all curriculum areas. The cultural area is clearly identifiable by globes, puzzle maps, flags and perhaps images or materials from other cultures.
