Dr. Montessori’s theory that children have a natural desire to learn (described as “the absorbent mind”) has been reinforced by modern research. Recent findings confirm that up to 50% of a child’s mental development takes place between those ages of 0 to 4 years, and another 30% between the ages of 4 to 8 years. A Montessori approach to education in the pre-school and Kindergarten years prepares children to be interested and active participants in their own education.
Areas of learning in a Montessori Class:
- Practical Life
- Sensorial Exercises
- Cultural Studies
We enhance this programme of education by offering additional opportunities for learning in such areas as French, Computers, Physical Education, Music and Arts. Our Casa students are also given the time and encouragement to explore and enjoy their own library as they begin to develop a love of reading.
* Children must turn 3 years of age by December of their year of entry.
