Our programs are structured to nurture interest, curiosity and developmental needs of the child. The activities and tasks help children with hands-on learning, eye & hand coordination, develop decision making skills and being independent. Our trained teachers guide them and provide them with materials to explore the world around. Drill, march-past, yoga, sloka recitation, drawing, coloring and western dance are some the activities for their physical, spiritual and intellectual growth. The environment at Cremon Buds is designed to create a safe learning atmosphere for children, in whose hands lies the future of the man-kind.
In this group children develop functions related to movement and intellect. They form the building blocks of their learning and absorb the environment around them and construct into reality. Children participate in different activities designed to improve their eye and hand coordination. Practical life exercises such as holding, carrying, spooning and pouring helps to them improve their motor skills and concentration.
Sensorial exercises aim at activating the five senses and help children to explore the environment around them through their experience. The child’s work with sensorial material exposes them to size, shape, sound, smell, texture, weight, temperature etc.
The Director and her assistant nurture the children by helping introducing them to the important aspects of life: getting along with others, respect boundaries, using the senses, movements, shapes and sounds.
The day starts with a sloka recitation and meditation followed by simple engaging activities involving colours, shapes, numbers and letters. Children spend a good 40 minutes on life skills using their choice of Montessori sensorial equipment and then continue with games, songs, rhymes and art activities. Children enjoy the free time by listening or sharing stories when they want to.
The group 2 curriculum aides the formative years of children and are designed to meet their physical, cognitive and social needs. Distinction between fantasy and reality with the guidance from teachers and parents helps children to form the concrete base. With the director at helm of all the activities and her assistants to support, the children work with specially designed Montessori materials and introduced to the first step of learning to read, write and numbers. Along with EPL and Sensorial activities, children start to learn the basics in English and Math simultaneously. They start with oral phonetics, tracing of alphabets on sand paper and numbers from 1-10. They go step by step in all the activities and introduce them to writing the cursive script at the age of 4 yrs.
The day starts with a sloka recitation and meditation followed by an interactive session on learning life skills, numbers and literacy using Montessori materials of their choice. Followed by free-play, lunch and group activities like nature walk art, crafts, and basic cooking/baking and music lessons. All these activities help children to gain control in the coordination of their movement, independence and adapt to the society.
The group 3 curriculum gives children to marvel at the new experiences and they show great initiative towards learning. This is the time when children express the knowledge that they have acquired in the last 2 years which formed a concrete base for their reading and writing. Children learn English grammar, the four operations in Math and are exposed to the basics of Geography, Botany, Zoology and GK. By the end of this level, children are completely independent, responsible, and sensible. They procure sufficient education on English, Math and Hindi suited according to their age.
The professionally trained teachers assist the children with the hands-on meaning-driven interactions to help them learn, discover and apply knowledge.
The children are assigned reasonable tasks or goals to come back when faced with challenges on different occasions. The activities like nature walk, art, crafts, and music lessons all aid the children to attain a balance from the technological world and the natural world.
At Cremon Buds, the physical and emotional development and well being of the children is the priority and activities are designed to give them the best formative years of their learning. The activities include
. Western Dance
. Physical Education

The role as a parent is paramount and a strong partnership between you and the school will play a vital role in your child's education. We are convinced that children benefit from interaction with parents and other adults in the school. Children need to be listened to by adults. This is how they experience the worth of their ideas and learn to appreciate the company of a wide range of people.
We encourage parents to share their special skills and interests with staff and students; assist in your child's classroom; lend a hand on excursions; contribute resources or provide vital input into even fundraising activities. However, your most valuable contribution will be your enthusiasm for your child's Montessori Education, and a keenness to complement it at home. We encourage you to read, ask questions, and so continue to learn more about the Montessori approach.
Our commitment to Montessori principles ensures that we will keep parents and students informed about, and included in, the child's progress & development, the educational program and the child's self evaluation and goal setting. Our reports are designed to give a summary of what students have achieved in their learning. This information is gained by diagnostic testing in core curriculum areas and other forms of teacher assessment, review of student work and teacher judgement / observation about student progress, attitude and effort. The written reports should be viewed in conjunction with all of the different forms of reporting throughout the year to give a complete picture of progress. When viewed as a whole, parents should be able to gain an understanding of their child's strengths, interests, challenges and areas for further learning.
We are committed to developing quality home-school partnerships. Therefore we will communicate in a variety of ways e.g. Informal chats, Class Newsletters, emails, Interviews upon request, Specific Information Evenings, Phone Calls.
