In Montessori Preschool Environment (CASA Classes), five distinct areas create the separate environment. Each of these areas are supported with special hang-on materials that allow young children to learn concepts and skills in a practical way. Children can enroll in the full day program or in a half-day morning program.
Kindergarten Program: Age 5-6: Our kindergarten program is the first formal year of school (Year One in the British System) and is full day in our Primary Program. The Montessori Philosophy is carried over into our early Primary Program in using Montessori apparatus and specially designed learning environment to develop and reinforce Kindergarten concepts.
In Kindergarten, children begin to use sounds to form words and are soon reading and writing simple short vowel words and simple sentences, both phonetically as well as using basic sight words for their age group.
