i Discover Montessori Elementary classrooms constitute children between six to nine years and is built upon the experiences gained during the first six years, in the family and the Montessori House of children.
The Elementary child is of still in the process of forming himself but has entered a new realm of development. Now, the child between 6 to 9 is more interested in why, when and how of the things rather than what and where as in the earlier stage.
The child in the age between six and nine years needs an introduction to every aspect of cosmic development and achievement of human beings. As he no longer possesses the Absorbent Mind of the younger child, the older child uses his profound imagination to understand the essential ideas of the history of humans and the universe. Using the specially designed materials and activities, the child experiences the discoveries and inventions through the ages and gradually understands that nature is a delicate web interrelationship of which the human being is a necessary part, which Dr Montessori calls Cosmic Education.
Like the Primary classroom that precedes it, the Elementary Montessori classroom is also designed to help the child grow in a responsive, self-controlled environment, without any artificial restraints and within the boundaries of real freedom.
At i Discover the areas of Practical Life, Language, Math, Geometry, Botany, Zoology, Geography, Art and History are all represented in the classroom with materials that lead the student from concrete to abstraction of the fundamental concepts in each area. The result of this approach leads to an open-ended mind with a capability of thinking creatively. This Elementary Montessori is then blended with the CBSE board from Grade 4 all the way to Grade XII.
