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

Our Montessori playgroup provides an opportunity for children and their parents to come together in a specially prepared environment suited to the developmental needs of young children. The focus of our program is to help children experience the joy of learning by facilitating their need for independence, order, movement, language and understanding of the world. Through the support and guidance of a facilitator, parents will increase their awareness of their child’s capabilities and need for independence. Parents will grow in their role as nurturing caregivers as they gain valuable parenting knowledge about Montessori principles including what experiences they can offer their child in the home environment.

Children are able to choose and use materials with minimal adult assistance. Parents are made aware of the importance of allowing their child to complete and repeat tasks without interruption or interference. In this way, the child builds up their concentration span and sense of accomplishment.
