Enhanced CASA Montessori Curriculum
Children age 3-6 years are presented with an array of Montessori tools that focus on the five areas of the Montessori curriculum:
- Practical life activities instill care of the self, care of others and care for the environment.
- The Sensorial area is where children learn to identify and internalize abstract thoughts and concepts through exploration of senses such as touch, hearing, sight, taste and smell.
- Language development focuses on oral language skills, listening skills, writing and reading (phonics) with the goal of students being able to decode words and comprehend the meaning of text.
- In Math, the concrete Montessori tools help children to develop a solid understanding of mathematical concepts, prepare them for reasoning and help develop problem-solving capabilities. The child learns to add, subtract, multiply and divide and to see the numerical, geometrical and dimensional relationships within the decimal system.
- Cultural activities help students discover ideas and concepts in geography, history, botany, zoology and the sciences.
