Casa Dei Bambini class is a joyful, peaceful community of children from 3 to 6 years old.
Les Oliviers has one Casa dei Bambini that includes a French-speaking AMI Montessori-trained guide and an English-speaking assistant.
The classroom environment is carefully designed to meet the needs of students this age, who are described by Dr. Montessori as possessing “absorbent minds.” The teacher acts as a nurturing guide and facilitator. Children are given sequenced lessons designed to increase their skill and independence. Once they have been introduced to the activities and materials, children enjoy choosing their own work.
The Primary program focuses on these areas:
Grace and Courtesy
The Montessori materials, joyfully presented and freely chosen, create a strong foundation for reading, writing, creativity, critical thinking and participation in an active, diverse community. By the time children have completed their time in Primary they have become poised, proud, and compassionate leaders for the younger children. They have learned to think for themselves, approach learning with joy, and self-regulate their emotions for social harmony.
