NIDO/INFANT section icon



The Nido environment is a special environment designed to replicate the home. In the the Nido classroom children will be met with love, care and respect. The adults in the environment are there to guide and support the child as they learn and develop. In this environment we work on self-feeding, balance and coordination and following a simple routine.



18-30 MONTHS

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.

CASA PREP PROGRAM section icon


24-42 MONTHS

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 group. 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.



“The child has a different relation to his environment from ours….the child absorbs it. The things he sees are not just remembered; they form part of his soul. He incarnates himself all in the world about him that his eyes wee and his ears here.” Maria Montessori

The Montessori CASA program is offered to the child between the ages of 3 to 6 years. 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 preparing 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!


Children thrive on routine and summer camp provides just that. Little ones preparing to head to school for the first time, why not let them get their feet wet and try camp for a few weeks.

You deserve a break and your little one will enjoy the change of scenery and the social interaction with their peers. Our qualified staff is ready to roll and our great themes are sure to keep your youngster entertained and excited!!

Each theme has scheduled arts & crafts, dramatic play, games and activities, We are a sun safe camp and ask that all campers come with a hat and sunscreen. The children remain indoors during the heat of the day.
