Casa Program (Nursery, LKG, UKG, Age 2.6-6Yrs)
The Casa environment is a child’s world, focusing on the size, pace and interests. Our Montessori Casa program is a unique cycle of learning designed to take advantage of the child’s sensitive years when he can effortlessly absorb information from an enriched classroom environment. The classroom (indoors and outdoors) is a prepared environment for the child’s unique aptitude for learning. By manipulating materials, children start their understanding of concepts in these areas with a firm concrete base. By providing freedom within limits, children are allowed to work individually at their own pace and develop a self-motivated love of learning. Self-discovery materials help develop a mind that can independently solve problems and think critically. A love of learning results which prepares the child for a lifetime of education.
The Casa Classroom (Nursery, LKG, UKG, Age 2.6-6Yrs)
The Casa classroom is divided into five different areas: Practical Life, Sensorial, Language, Math, Culture- geography, Arts. Within these areas, the materials are logically organized from simple idea to the complex, and from concrete to the abstract. Each area has hands-on materials which are geometrically shaped, simply designed, aesthetic, and suitable for small hands. Interaction with these high-quality materials rewards the child with a range of sensorial experiences.
Practical Life Skills
The Practical Life activities encompass tasks such as pouring and transferring liquids or solids, sorting objects, cutting paper using scissors, practicing folding techniques, and gaining proficiency in lacing, zippers, and button tying.
The sensory material empowers children to grasp their surroundings by engaging their senses. Each material piece possesses a distinct quality, like color, weight, size, shape, texture, sound, smell, and more, facilitating a deep understanding for the child and instilling purpose, organization, and structure in their learning processes
Language and Literacy
Proficiency in language is essential for understanding concepts in science, history, and geography. In a Montessori setting, children receive guidance in both oral and written language development.
The practice of mathematics is an essential part of everyday learning. To ensure an effective grasp of math concepts, concrete Montessori materials like number rods, stamp games, bead stairs, and more are utilized. These materials play a crucial role in developing a child's logical thinking and problem-solving abilities.
Geography in Montessori education is emphasized through the utilization of vibrant and visual materials, promoting the child's learning capacity. The Culture aspect of Montessori learning encompasses Geography, History, and Green Awareness.
It is our goal to enhance the artistic nature within each child as well by teaching an appreciation for and awareness of the diversity of art around us. Music and arts are all taught at the Montessori level to foster a child’s natural ability, creativity, and imagination.
