About Kubo


Kubo Montessori is committed to extending the comforts of home in a prepared Montessori environment to help your child reach their full emotional and cognitive potential.

Kubo Montessori recognizes the importance of stimulating the inner drive of each child to learn and explore. Because every child is a unique individual, we tailor your child's education to fit their specific needs.


Our program aspires to promote independence, organization, concentration, etiquette and self-esteem to empower the child to achieve. Through manipulative materials available to them, they learn to discover and understand new concepts and the world around them.

Areas of Development

Practical Life

The Practical Life Area allows the child to work with materials that enhance his or her fine motor and self-help skills. The jobs involve transferring liquid or solid objects from one container to another either with their bare hands or with instruments like spoons, tongs, tweezers, basters etc. The child can also work with the dressing frames to help them master their button, zipper, hook and eye, buckle, snap and bow tying skills. Most jobs are familiar to the child and promote confidence, coordination, concentration, order and independence.


The Sensorial Area helps the child hone his or her 5 senses (visual, auditory, tactile, olfactory and gustatory). The child will learn to discriminate, associate and classify materials accordingly. This area prepares the child for academic learning like math and language.


Montessori Math materials are very visual and give the child a concrete understanding of quantity and symbol. The child is always encouraged to challenge himself or herself and has the freedom to explore in his or her own phase.


Kubo Montessori uses miniature objects to name, introduce sound, spell words and make sentences or simple paragraphs. We use phonetic reading and sight reading to help the child develop his or her skills.


The Cultural Area is composed of Geology, Biology, Zoology, Botany and Cosmology. Every month we introduce different concepts touching each branch of the Sciences and relate their existence to the Cosmic World.
