OUR CASA COMMUNITY
Our Casa program provides a prepared environment for children ages 3 to 6 years of age. The didactic materials used in the classroom are based on the pedagogy developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, and aid the child in the learning process.
Spontaneous and self-directed learning is fostered in this non-competitive environment. Children are free to work independently or in collaboration with peers, gaining important social skills. Self-esteem and confidence develop as children explore the materials and master important developmental skills.
The Casa classroom is a prepared environment designed to stimulate interest and exploration.
Through the use of the unique Montessori materials, children learn by associating abstract concepts with sensorial experiences. Hands and mind work together; doing and manipulating, rather than simply observing.
As the children become engaged in activities, they begin to develop concentration, attention to detail and self-discipline while working towards completion of tasks.
Courtesy, as well as respect for others and the environment, are important aspects of daily classroom life.
Our Casa students also take part in daily French lessons and outdoor physical activity.
The core of the learning experience comes from five areas of the classroom that the child will work within, all containing physically and mentally engaging materials.
“The most important period of life is not the age of university studies, but the period from birth to the age of six.”MARIA MONTESSORI
