Casa Montessori is an intimately sized, one classroom preschool located in the Cobble Hill/Carroll Gardens neighborhood of Brooklyn. We serve young children, ages 2 1/2 to 5, and their families through the implementation of quality early childhood practices and a true passion for early education.
An intimate class
In this intimately sized class, teachers will follow the children’s natural curiosity, encouraging their instinctive desire to learn with inspiring classroom materials and a flexible curriculum. We will lay the foundation for each academic area in an age-appropriate manner that honors each child’s unique learning style.
A bilingual classroom
Casa Montessori implements a bilingual approach in the classroom. Throughout the day, Spanish is incorporated through song, books, vocabulary games and conversation. Children with all levels of Spanish exposure (even if this is zero exposure) are guided in their bilingual education at Casa Montessori. In offering children the opportunity to explore their development in two languages, we are strengthening their cognitive abilities to multitask, problem-solve, switch attention and make decisions, even when having nothing to do with language! It is our hope that in offering this early opportunity to build skills in a second language, children will inherently broaden their understanding of the many beautiful cultural differences in our world.
A nurturing environment
Most importantly we will create a positive atmosphere in which the children will flourish socially, emotionally and academically. In scaffolding the interests of the children from a Montessorian perspective, Casa Montessori children will build confidence and independence in their own learning.
