Seven Senses

The name "Seven Senses" truly reflects the Montessori Method of learning. This method is highly sensorial, wherein the child feels and works with the learning materials. Vedas also talk about these seven unique senses that govern the human body. We take care to nourish each one of them in a balanced manner in the learning process.

Each child is unique, and they learn in a variety of ways. Some learn better by listening, others by watching and observing or by touch and exploration, and so on. They each use their senses in a combination which is unique to themselves. We provide them an opportunity, to immerse their senses in our learning environment designed on the Montessori Method. These senses described below.

Sight Ability to see, observe and absorb our surroundings. The learning materials are arranged in an inviting manner on open shelves, which attracts the child to pursue their own unique learning path, and at their own pace. Children also learns from observing other children perform the tasks. Time is taken to help them observe nature and its processes, thereby making the learning holistic.
Smell The sense by which odors are perceived; the olfactory sense; detect or discover. Activities that help child engage with nature and discover its beautiful smells, and its wonder form part of our every week. Smells evoke emotions in all of us, and help the child be more creative.
Touch To cause or permit a part of the body, especially the hand or fingers, to come in contact with so as to feel. The child feel and works with the learning materials, mastering each one of them at their own pace. The learning enhances as the materials get progressively complex. Our environments are designed to support child's need for movement and expression.
Taste The faculty of discerning what is aesthetically excellent or appropriate. To have experience or enjoyment. The child uses his innate sense of taste to spend more time on activities they enjoy. They materials are aesthetically arranged which invite the child. Time is given for observation and expressing themselves, helping them develop their sense of taste.
Hearing Hearing is the ability to perceive sound by detecting vibrations via the ear. Many learning activities focus on hearing to help learn better. e.g. languages use natural sound to build words and not the alphabet sounds, and then correlate them for easier grasping. Child is given time to concentrate on the activities so that he develops active listening and not only on superficial hearing.
Intuition Thoughts and perceptions that come to the mind quickly and without much reflection. Typically, intuition is regarded as a conscious commonality between earthly knowledge and the higher spiritual knowledge and appears as flashes of illumination. It is asserted that by definition intuition cannot be judged by logical reasoning. The Montessori's unique materials help a child's intuition to guide it through the learning process. By observing the child, can help discover the child's natural likings and interests. The loving and supporting environment allows child's own intuition to be their guide. The educator only motivates and supports, instead of instructing and managing.
Equilibrium A sense that coordinates your motor activities of different senses, provides a sense of balance to the body and thought. Makes decisions. The learning environment helps the child interact proactively with the materials to initiate learning. This enables them to learn in a balanced manner using a combination of various senses to get a holistic and unique learning experience. Many senses need to be coordinated to accomplish complex tasks, which enhances the child's sense of equilibrium.
