We are a member school of the AMI Montessori Quality Assurance program and our programs are designed to follow authentic Montessori curriculum mixed with frequent field trips and volunteer activities that make learning practical and fun for our young children.
We offer full-day and half-day Casa programs for children 2.5 to 6 years of age. Our fully-equipped classroom with Montessori materials is purpose-designed and child-sized for supporting individualistic learning at high levels of independence. Both our Casa programs follow the same authentic Montessori curriculum.
As children are more able to focus in the mornings, our programs allow for 3-hour uninterrupted work-cycles in the mornings. As such, our half-day program is offered only in the mornings making it suitable for children younger than 4 years of age. Our full-day program allows us to offer older children activities requiring extended concentration and workspace in the afternoons. We highly recommend that children over the age of 4 attend our full day program to gain the full benefit of the Montessori education.
The lessons are offered by the lead Directress. However, our AMI-trained supervisor is available to substitute when the lead directress is unavailable.
Tuition Fees for Full-Day / Half-Day Casa Programs
Our Parents Handbook details our tuition fee structure. Please contact us for a copy of our handbook. If you have any questions, please feel free to call us or drop by the school to speak to us.
The before and after school programs are designed to be different from the core Montessori program so that children can differentiate between Montessori work cycles and play time. However, adhering to the Montessori principles, we encourage children to engage in activities rather than watch TV programs or video games (we do not have TV or video game devices at school).
While these programs are intended as a service to working parents, we take pride in giving the attention and the much-needed affection the children so deserve to offer them a caring home-away-from-home environment.
Before school care runs from 7:00 am to 8:45 am and children may choose to read books, do coloring activities or play with toys and building blocks. We encourage them to play individually as well as in groups so that they can learn to share, collaborate and develop social skills.
After-school care starts at 3:45 pm and goes until 6:00 pm. This program offers children ample outdoor time in our large, beautiful backyard to discover nature and run around. If weather is a deterrent, children will be indoors often coloring, painting, playing with toys or building blocks.
