Instructors We believe that when parents expect Montessori trained and or ECE licensed educator teach their children they should also demand the same from Music and other professions. That is why during our music program our teacher will usually be a separate staff with a professional music background typically from Ontario Music Conservatory. This critical step allows children to play the piano from a pianist rather than an ECE / Montessori teacher thus learning the fundamentals correctly.
Fees Every child enrolled in our school will automatically be enrolled into 30 minute session of group extra curricular activities daily. Each program will offer a unique and adaptive schedule to meet the child development stage.
The foundation of Galaxy Montessori shines through its unique approach to extra curricular activities. Our belief is that each child finds greater value being educated by a professional in their designated field.
French Dr. Montessori identified the period from 0-6 years as the critical period for acquiring language instruction each day. Consistent with her philosophy, children at Galaxy Montessori participate in French language instruction. Even the youngest children are introduced to the French language through fun and interactive games and activities. Lessons focus on French culture, and children are encouraged to work together on extended projects. French classes are designed to introduce basic vocabulary and a cultural approach to the French speaking world. Children learn French while having fun by listening to music, playing a variety of traditional Montessori games, as well as engaging in movement and dance activities, videos, and practical conversation. We are proud to also offer the following languages: English, French, Cantonese, Mandarin, Farsi, Spanish, Italian, and other languages based on demand.
Music & Movement Music instruction cultivates a love and understanding of music and creative movement. The music curriculum invites children to express and invent themselves through dance, movement and song. Students are introduced to the basic concepts of music through activities that help explain pitch, rhythm, and the dynamics of sound. This, accompanied with an introduction to classical music, and an appreciation for world instruments, promote both creative musical thinking and cultural awareness. Movement activities allow the children to explore the physical attributes of their bodies and experiment with a wide variety of physical abilities. Movement lessons within strive to enhance each child's physical growth and development. Children work to develop useful practical skills such as eye-hand coordination, eye-foot coordination, balance, strength and agility. We are proud to offer the following Music and Movement classes: Piano (level 1 through 10 as per Royal Conservatory of music), Violin, Guitar
Art The art program compliments the Montessori philosophy encouraging children to express themselves through various materials. Art theory and technique is introduced to the students through means of exploration and discovery, building a foundation for artistic expression and aesthetic awareness. Special cultural studies throughout the year expand the children's knowledge of not only traditional art forms from around the world, but the history of Art as a whole. Art provides children with a natural way to communicate thoughts, feelings and ideas as well as a way to develop an understanding and appreciation of the artistic process.
Parents can customize additional classes to further develop their child. Once enrolled we could setup a one on one tutoring class for each program. We are pleased to provide parents with an opportunity to enrol their kids in the following programs.
