Casa Program (3 to 6 years)
Children from 3 to 6 years old possess what Dr. Montessori called the absorbent mind. This gives them the ability to absorb all aspects of their culture and environment with very little effort.
The environment has five distinct areas of study: practical life, sensorial materials, language, mathematics and cultural studies.
Other subjects such as art, spanish, biology, botany, zoology and music are presented as extensions of the sensorial and language activities. Children learn about people and cultures, giving them a connection to the global human family.
Our teachers follow the child through their experience of the classroom environment. Based on their observations they develop an individualized lesson plan that best suits the child’s interests. This learning process allows the children to have choices regarding their education, fostering confidence and independence.
"Education is not what the teacher gives; education is the natural process spontaneously carried out by the individual, and is not acquired by listening to words, but by experience upon the environment.
