"Educating Your Children Through Authentic Montessori Education"

Casa Program

La Mosaic Casa Program provides the sense of security, nurturance and loving care that kindergartners and primary ages alike need to thrive during this stage of intense learning. As young children are committed to achieving independence, the Directress provides responsive individual attention as your child deals with positive experiences as well as frustrations. The program takes advantage of the rapid growth of fine and gross motor skills at this stage of development.

Motor SkillsThe Practical Life component of the Montessori Method is the link between the child’s home environment and the classroom. Materials used will involve the children in precise movements that encourage their ability to concentrate, work at their own pace without interruption, and to complete and enjoy challenging activities. Within this are Four areas of focus: Control of Movement, Care of Person, Care of the Environment and Grace and Courtesy. Practical Life Activities such as pouring, sweeping, dusting, buttoning, zipping and table setting are introduced early, providing opportunities for children to care for themselves and thus their journey towards independence begins. Areas of learning include the development of large muscle movement and fine motor exercises for hand-eye coordination. Lessons on grace and courtesy are introduced and applied daily to help children learn to share things and be considerate and respectful of their peers.

Classrooms are carefully planned to meet the needs of children and organized for their convenience. Teachers facilitate classes using age appropriate Montessori materials and activities are designed to arouse their interest and involvement while challenging their natural curiosity. The child will begin his or her journey in the exploration of the environment using their sensory senses. Hence when the sensitive period of Language and Math is attained the child will begin her appreciation and interest in those areas, followed closely by areas relating to Culture and Botany.

The Montessori Method is based on the individual needs and capabilities of each child. In the classroom the children are offered a graduated series of materials and activities, and are encouraged to develop a sense of satisfaction from a job well done. The materials and activities are specifically designed to create a sense of purpose for your child. This increases their sense of achievement and develops within them a joy for learning.
