Casa Program (2.5 – 6 years)
Doctor Maria Montessori believed that humans are most capable of learning during the first six years of life. She referred to this as the period of the absorbent mind. During these years children, through their senses, have the ability to absorb stunning amount of information from their surroundings. It is through this process that children learn language skills, gain motor and cognitive abilities, and acquire an understanding of how others should treat them.
At GMS we take advantage of this period and children’s natural desire to learn by providing hands-on and self-correcting Montessori materials. Our Montessori certified educators guide children’s learning and allow them to peruse activities of their personal interest at their own pace.
The casa classroom is a beautiful, spacious, clam, and clutter-free environment, prepared to meet this age group’s cognitive, social, physical and emotional needs.
