Named after Dr. Maria Montessori’s Casa dei Bambini, literally meaning “Children's House,” this is where the core of our education method begins.
The Casa Program is equivalent to the preschool and kindergarten level, a crucial period of transformation where the child is instinctively learning from his surroundings.
This is a period characterized by what Dr. Montessori calls the “absorbent mind,” which must be nurtured within a prepared environment, under the guidance of a trained adult.
What sets the Casa Program apart from Nursery and Kindergarten is that our students are free to hone and develop their capacity for learning. This is made possible through over 177 specially designed hands-on materials for learning the following:
– Practical Life skills such as grooming, sweeping the floor, setting the table, washing handkerchiefs, and others
– Sensorial Arts to sharpen the visual, auditory, tactile, olfactory, and gustatory senses
– Language to develop writing, reading, and communication
– Mathematics include counting from 0, 4 basic operations, decimal system, and fractions
– Cultural Arts (Botany, Zoology, History, and Geography)
The Casa Department is divided into 3 levels:
– Junior Casa (Nursery 1) for ages 3 to 4 years old.
– Junior Advanced Casa (Nursery 2) for ages 4 to 5 years old.
– Advanced Casa (Kindergarten) for ages 5 to 6 years old.
