Casa Montessori

Casa Montessori

2.8 - 6 years

NMCLA offers year round programming for Casa aged students.

Both part and full time classroom and childcare programs are available.

The classroom invites concentration, precision and order in an aesthetically pleasing environment in which the children learn respect and kindness towards one another and the materials around them.  We offer a low student to teacher ratio, encouraging maximum learning potential.

Our program is based on the Montessori method and provides a nurturing environment that helps children develop by letting them learn to be creative, use critical thinking, problem solving and time management skills.

Our focus is nurturing the five areas of Montessori Education, which includes:

  • Practical Life
  • Mathematics
  • Sensorial
  • Language
  • Geography & Culture
