BMN's Casa Program
(3 years - 6 years)

The term “Casa” comes from the name of Maria Montessori’s first program in Rome: Casa dei Bambini, “Home for Children”. Our remarkable Montessori Casa program is tailored to meet the developmental needs of children3 to 6 years of age. At this age and stage of development, children continue to explore their environment using their senses.  Children are taught lessons individually or in a small group, based on their capabilities and interests. The children use purposeful and concrete materials to learn abstract concepts (for example: using thousand cubes, hundred squares, ten bars and unit beads in order to perform addition into the thousands); this helps the children familiarize themselves with concepts that will be revisited in lower elementary.
The children are encouraged to move freely about their environment, choosing work that satisfies their inner needs. In these ways, independence, confidence and a sense of responsibility are encouraged. 
It is encouraged that all children entering the Casa program are toilet independent (with the exception of children with diagnosed or suspected medical conditions). At this level, children are offered a daily “peace time” (a quiet rest period) in the afternoon.
The classrooms are arranged as follows: 3 - 6 years old (preschool, JK and SK equivalent)
