Casa : 3 years to 6 years
In our Casa program, children engage in the core areas of learning proposed by Maria Montessori Practical Life, Sensorial, Language, along with Culture (including Science, Geography and History), and Math areas. They are consciously supported by our Montessori-trained teacher along with a Montessori assistant teacher who direct, guide, and carefully observe the child to be fully aware of his or her development. Our Casa classroom ratio is 1 teacher to 8 students. New material is introduced to the child as he or she is ready for it, and it is not unusual for children to leave the Casa level at the age of 6 with highly developed reading and writing skills, the ability to do simple math, and a thirst to move on to a higher learning programs.
Toddler Program : 18 months to 2.5 years
Our toddler program offers professional childcare and an early childhood education with introduction to the Montessori philosophy & methodology for children 18 months to 2 ½ years of age.
