Casa dei Bambini "house of children"
The Casa dei Bambini caters for Toddlers and preschoolers from 18 months to 6 years.
The child from 0-3 years old takes in all the impressions of life by just absorbing them – touching and feeling – they take in everything to build up a picture of everyone and everything around them.
They learn to talk (often more than 1 language), learn to sit up, crawl, walk, and run. They want to learn to care for themselves; to feed themselves, dress themselves, blow their own noses, and put on their own shoes and many other activities.
The Montessori toddler environment provides a space where all of these and numerous other actions can be explored.
In the Montessori Casa environment (preschool) the children are supported and assisted by guides (teachers) as they develop. We follow a classic Montessori curriculum, and encourage independence so that children learn to make their own choices, and in doing so understand the importance of responsibility. This responsibility goes along with making choices and completing something they have chosen to work with.
The Montessori prepared preschool environment helps facilitate learning for the child. Each stage of development requires a suitable environment prepared with needs of that plane of development in mind.
