La Casa dei Piccoli

Maria Montessori believed that the first three years of life are the most fundamental in the development of human beings and their potential. In her own words “Our work as adults does not consist in teaching, but in helping the infant mind in its work of development.” ~ Maria Montessori

The Montessori approach for children under three years has a strong emphasis on parent education, on recognition of the parent as prime educator, and preparation of the home environment.

Our playgroup provides an opportunity for children aged 18 months to 3 years and their parents to come together in a specially prepared environment suited to the developmental needs of young children. This nurturing environment with specially designed materials and equipment is calm, ordered and enticing to children to explore and assist them in realising their full potential.
