Lower and Upper Casa Program

Our Casa programs are for children ages 2.5 years to 6 years.  Children are introduced to Montessori materials that are scientifically designed so they can learn through cooperative work, exploration and discovery.

In the Casa Program, the children will be introduced to:

1.  Exercises of Practical Life
Practical Life activities aids in developing independence, fine and gross motor skills, social skills and confidence.  The purpose of Practical Life activities is to aid the child to care for the environment that they are in by maintaining it, beautifying it, and acknowledging it.  These activities will facilitate the children to be responsible and independent for their space. 

2.  Mathematics
The Montessori Math materials in the classroom are important to help the child organise and classify information in an orderly manner.  The materials are designed in a sensorial way.  The materials are proportionate to the child’s size, they are clean, colour coded, attractive, intriguing and autodidactic (self-correcting therefore encouraging independence).  The children learn to count by associating the appropriate quantity to the numbers.

3.  Sensorial Life Activities
The Sensorial activities enhance the development of learning through the senses.  These activities help develop the 5 main senses (sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste), as well as, stereognostic sense, baric sense, thermic sense and kinesthetic sense.  The Sensorial materials are designed to help children classify and organise information received through the senses.  In the Sensorial area, we present materials that provide keys to the environment: colour, size, weight, shape. With these keys in hand, a child may then construct abstractions, progressing dramatically in cultural and intellectual knowledge. 

4.  Language
The Montessori Language materials provide enrichment of the English language and lay a foundation for reading, writing and grammar analysis.  Alphabets are taught phonetically so the transition to reading comes naturally and with ease.  Language, Practical Life and Sensorial materials go hand in hand in our classrooms.  Practical Life exercises give the logics of order, Sensorial materials aid in visual discrimination which help lay a foundation for reading and writing. 

5.  Culture
The Cultural area of the Montessori classroom covers a variety of subjects such as geography (globes, puzzle maps, flags), botany (parts or a leaf, flower and botany cabinet) and zoology (parts of a butterfly and ant). These materials help children to develop their awareness of other countries, cultures and people - including the one they live in.

Lower Elementary Program

Montessori education for the lower elementary age is geared to the child of six to nine years.  Where we gave the younger child the physical world and all of its elements, to this older, eager, hungry mind, we offer up the whole universe.  We are faced with a new child.  The absorbent mind of the young child is replaced by an emerging reasoning mind, and the new power moving the child now is imagination.  This is a period of development marked by very strong psychological characteristics; the awakening of the moral sense, the exploration of right and wrong, herd instinct.  All these characteristics give us the direction and approach to this older child as he continues his academic development.
 

Elementary & Middle School Principles
paraphrased from: "From Childhood to Adolescence", Maria Montessori (1948)

For the purpose of self-expression, there would be all kinds of artistic occupations open to free choice both as to the time and the nature of the work.  Some must be for the individual and some would require the cooperation of a group.  They would involve artistic and linguistic ability and imagination, including music, language and art.

The "formative" education that will construct firm foundations for the character consists of three subjects: moral education, mathematics and language.  Moral education is the source of the spiritual equilibrium on which everything else depends.  Mathematics is necessary because intelligence today is no longer natural but mathematical, and without development and education in mathematics, it is impossible to understand or take any part in the special forms of progress characteristic of our time.  The development of language is part of the development of the personality, for words are the natural means of expressing thoughts and establishing an understanding between people.
 

Upper Elementary Program

The prepared environment for children aged nine to thirteen years encourages the child to explore the realm of organised society.  This child strongly feels the need to belong, to take part and to make a difference.  It is during this time that through the study of the great civilizations, great inventions, great people and great philosophies that the child finds his place as a useful member of the family of Man.  During this period, the Montessori child acquires a deep sense of gratitude for the creation and the work of the human mind and hand.
 

General education which serves as a preparation for adult life may be classified into three groups: 

    1    The study of the earth and of livings things, that is geology, geography (including pre historic periods), biology and cosmology 

    2    The study of human progress and the building up of civilization in connection with physics and chemistry, mechanics, engineering, genetics

    3    The study of the history of humankind: This should be treated as far as possible as a complete whole from which special periods can be chosen for individual study.
