Casa Program (Ages 2.5 to 6 years)
Our Casa program is designed for children between the ages of 2.5 to 6 years. Our Casa classes are taught by certified Montessori teachers. Students graduating from the Casa program are provided with a strong foundation upon which they will continue to build throughout their elementary years. The classrooms are well equipped with materials appropriate for the Montessori method.
Our Casa curriculum includes the following areas of study:
"Any child who is self-sufficient, who can tie his shoes, dress or undress himself, reflects in his joy and sense of achievement the image of human dignity, which is derived from a sense of independence. "
Dr Maria Montessori felt that having knowledge and understanding of such subjects is what makes one a "Cultured" person.
Montessori cultural curriculum is focuses on science, geography, music and art. Yoga exercises are a modern addition to the program which helps child to concentrate. During the year children learn about land, air and water, maps, continents, animals, people, food and music from other countries. Our Casa children enjoy exploring these areas which leads to curiosity and satisfaction.
ASMS' Christian education is based on the Godly Play curriculum that coincides with the Montessori teaching method. The children enjoy half an hour of storytelling using wooden props and enhanced with games and crafts. This program respects the innate spirituality and intellect of children and encourages curiosity and imagination in experiencing the mystery and joy of God's love for them and for the world.
