At SpecialMe we encourage parents to visit us at any time of the day, join our field trips or attend any of our special events. But we do ask parents who plan to visit their children frequently to follow the daily classroom routine, to avoid disturbing classroom schedules and activities. We suggest short visits or watching from the hallway to ensure that the students are not distracted from their learning activities and classroom rules. If you wish to meet our Program Director or staff member, please make an appointment so we can make the necessary arrangements.

In SpecialMe Kindergarten program children are given the structured freedom to work at their own pace and pursue their love of learning. This ensures that the child understands what they are learning rather than just memorizing information. They will gain experience in reasoning, problem-solving, and critical thinking giving them a lifelong love of learning.
Our Montessori coordinators thoughtfully prepare the classroom environment with materials and activities that meet the students’ unique interests, academic level, and developmental needs. The activities are introduced to each child sequentially, laying the foundation for independent learning.
Children at this age learn by doing and they pursue their tasks independently either in a group or alone.
Our kindergarten curriculum has four basic components, which include Practical Life, Sensory, Language, and Math. In addition to this, we also introduce our children to geography, history, botany, zoology, arts, music and movement.
At the end of the program, each child in our care will emerge with a set of skills – social, emotional,
and academic and more importantly, know how to function within a group.

They also encourage sharing, taking turns and show them how to put the material away before working with another. This gives the toddlers an opportunity to learn social skills and manners by saying please, thank you etc.

Montessori Infant program at SpecialMe for age group 6 months to 1.5 years offers so much more than childcare. Each child in our care is treated as an individual to be nurtured with affection and respect. As is customary for Montessori environments, every detail is selected with the child’s whole development in mind. Our prepared infant environments are organized, clean and uncluttered with developmentally appropriate material and activities that support the child through each stage of infant growth. We use a variety of materials that are placed throughout the room that have different textures and natural colors.
Infants are encouraged to crawl as there are no highchairs or swings to hold the infant instead all the materials are placed on low shelves on the floor. We use mats, soft rugs, low chairs and tables. We also use treasure baskets filled with safe and real objects from around the house to explore. Care is taken to not overstimulate the infant. Materials are continually rotated as the infant’s interests are
Sleeping, feeding schedules and diaper changes are based on the individual needs of the infant and are recorded. We communicate with parents daily using the SpecialMe app to be sure we are meeting the needs of the constantly changing infant. After the age of 18 months, the child may begin his transition to the toddler program. Move-up ages may vary by several months.
Montessori Room at SpecialMe is designed such that everything is natural, organized and beautifully displayed to create an atmosphere of peace and tranquility. This helps children feel calm and relaxed. They can move freely choosing activities that interest them or working with the coordinator individually or in small groups. Their movement is unrestricted by the coordinator unless it endangers themselves or other children or their surroundings.
Gardening is a healthy, fun activity for children. It helps children develop new skills and learn about science and nature. At SpecialMe we encourage our children to interact with nature by creating a variety of interesting activities children can be involved in such as digging, planting, watering etc.
This allows children to explore and learn in the outdoors, dig in the soil, get dirty and engage in natural experiences.
Water play can help improve children’s balance, muscle strength and coordination at the same time boosting social growth as children get an opportunity to interact with one another. Playing in water is like playing in a brand-new playground where even the simplest activities, like clapping hands or jumping, are a whole new sensory experience. So, at SpecialMe we have designed a Splash Pool where children can play safely without worrying about falling or crashing into hard surfaces.
At SpecialMe, we encourage outdoor and nature play as it promotes physical health and social development in children. We have setup a large outdoor play area where children have the opportunity to explore, experiment, play, run, sing, dance, yell, discover and practice.

Through hands-on activities we encourage curiosity and investigation to find out how or why something happens, we let the kids explore, discover, observe and experiment.
At SpecialMe we have designed a soft play area for our infants and toddlers with safety in mind. Infants and toddlers experience the world as a sensory adventure, filled with things to see, hear and touch so in this room we have used soothing colors like blue to encourage relaxation, pale green to create a natural feel, a light yellow for warmth and sunshine and red to create a glowing, loving feel in the room. We have made sure that all outlets, windows, doors and sharp corners are completely covered to protect them from injury.
Yoga room at SpecialMe provides a calming and relaxing environment where children can connect, learn, support and relax. We introduce yoga to children through fun games and play so they develop an awareness of body, mind and spirit and this helps them become more confident, kind and responsible.
