Montessori Cultural (Thematic Learning )

This is the Learning of a topic which is built on a central theme which preschoolers are familiar with. Different skills and concepts are integrated into the topic. For example, Language skills are taught in the context through the use of theme-based learning. There are also fun Chinese and Malay languages components to arouse children’s interest and to develop their competency in the languages.
