The cultural area in a Montessori classroom is comprised of Geography, Science, Music and Art.  At the 3-6 year old level, children are beginning their move out from relatively insulated experiences of infancy and very early childhood to a greater experience of and interest in the world around them.  Montessori fosters this budding interest by exposing the child to a general understanding of our world and their place within it.  

 
These areas of study are noted below.  Each subject is a link to more information.
