Our Programs

At Montessori Children's Academy we offer 3 Early Learning programs:
Toddler Program (ages 18-24months)
CASA Prep Program (24-36months)
3-Year CASA Program (ages 2.5 to 6 years)

The Montessori classroom is a child-size world. Whatever is in the world outside can be incorporated meaningfully in the Montessori classroom. By careful selection of materials by the Directress, an environment is set up that allows the child to explore life at a level he can understand. The materials are designed to stimulate independent exploration.

Toddler Program

The toddler program is a wonderful way to begin your child's Montessori experience. This program focuses on the early integration of social skills, fine and gross motor skills, toileting and independent skills. Toddlers are provided with 2 healthy snacks each day and a prepared mid-day meal. This program has been designed to meet the needs of children between the ages of 18 and 24 months. We recommend a minimum attendance of 3 days (half or full).

CASA Prep Program

The CASA prep program is designed to facilitate the ever changing and growing 2-3 year old. This program focuses on mastering toileting, independent self-help skills and prepares the child for entry into the 3 year CASA program. This classroom is designed strategically to accommodate the tactile and sensory needs of this age grouping. Montessori materials are shown and used daily in this classroom. These children are provided with 2 healthy snacks each day and a prepared mid-day meal.

3-Year CASA Program

The Montessori CASA program is offered to the child between the ages of 2.5 to 6 years of age. This program focuses on the development of the whole child through the use of the Montessori materials. The program offers a dynamic individualized learning environment meeting the needs of each child. The Montessori CASA program caters to the developing mind of the child. Your child will experience the joy of scrubbing a table all the while prepaing him/herself for future motor skills required in writing. He/She will also take part in such things as learning and identifying the continents of our world, manipulating three dimensional geometric shapes, tracing the sandpaper letters in order to learn the phonetic sound and caring for both the indoor and outdoor environment at the school. The Montessori environment captures the inquisitive mind of the young child!
