Frequently asked questions

What is Montessori Inspired?

The Montessori philosophy approaches education through conscientious observation of children while they are encouraged to do work that they are naturally drawn to. The Montessori environment is beautifully organized into different areas to support the growth and development of each child. An area focussed on practical life skills includes work that stimulates both gross and fine motor skills and creates an awareness of the environment in which the child belongs. The sensorial area allows discovery of their senses and encourages constant refinement. The language and math areas introduce concepts starting from concrete to abstract, general to specific, and familiar to unfamiliar. Little Kitchen Academy reflects the Montessori environment in many aspects. Our environment is beautiful, thoughtfully organized and built with materials and equipment familiar to the children’s environment at home. Recipes have been developed and formatted to suit the children’s abilities based on age. They joyfully practice a three-hour work cycle to experience a ‘from scratch to consumption’ class. Our instructors are here to show the children how to properly use the tools, but step back and observe the independent work- only to help when asked or when safety is concerned. Teaching our children independence in the kitchen reinforces the Montessori philosophy of allowing our children to develop themselves to become a productive part of their own environment. Tasting ingredients and learning descriptive words only refines their senses, igniting more and more interest in food. Working with practical units of measure and combining ingredients to create something new are basic math and science concepts only to be called upon in math and science classes later. In addition, the Montessori method acknowledges how important the role of the Guide (teacher) is within the environment. The Guide feels honoured and privileged to work with children. At Little Kitchen Academy we believe that working with your children is an honour. We work with patience, humility, and passion.
