In the

Pre Casa class

, the emphasis is on developing self-help skills, as being independent is the single most important need of the toddler. Toilet-training is a major milestone at this stage and the teachers work with the parents to achieve the children's goals. A Montessori work period is introduced at this point and teachers help children make choices and finish their tasks.
The

Casa program

offers opportunities for children to develop motor skills and hand-eye coordination. By manipulating the various materials designed by Dr. Maria Montessori beginning with Practical Life and Sensorial activities, children learn several abstract concepts easily. Phonics and basic mathematical concepts are introduced through concrete materials.
