Casa I News

Dear families,

Thank you so much for attending our spring conferences; it was a great opportunity to visit and go over your child’s cognitive, emotional and social development. It’s very important to share with you your child’s strengths and areas they need to work on. Families and teachers who work together make a huge difference in the child’s educational journey. Also, many of you already know how much fun we had working on our MN art project for the fundraiser; if you would like to add a few more experiences and exposed your child to more of our Minnesota and the state symbols take a trip to the State Capital, drive by the Mississippi river and continue to add knowledge about our state, some of the children are eager to learn more.

We would like to welcome Bela, Mavi and Carolina to our Casa, please be so kind to stop and say hello to our new families! Please check out the photos of children working, playing and caring for themselves and the environment…. Some of them making sure that even under the table is nice and shiny!

Thank you to all the families for helping and making an effort to attend our pancake breakfast and Friday café.

“The Montessori Environment is a unique cycle of learning design to take advantage of the child’s sensitive years between three and six, when she/he can absorb information from an enriched environment. A child who acquires the basic skills of reading and arithmetic in a natural way has advantage of beginning their education without drudgery, boredom or discouragement. By pursuing individual interest in the Montessori environment, she/he gains an early enthusiasm for learning, which is the key to become a truly educated person." -A Parent’s Guide to the Montessori Classroom, Aline D.
