PRE CASA (18 to 36 months)
Terry Fox Montessori School's main goal for the Pre Casa program is to create an environment that is a home away from home while at the same time igniting the child’s natural curiosity. The areas in the classroom help the toddler reach certain milestones while heightening their natural learning process.
Our rich curriculum for toddlers is specially designed to:
foster cognitive development and speech and language development
develop and strengthen fine and gross motor skills
develop practical life skills and foster independence
instill confidence, kindness, grace, and courtesy
allow children to learn by doing, using all their senses to explore the world
instill social skills and cooperation.
Pre-Casa Toddlers learn language from stimulating materials and activities and learn to articulate their wants, needs, likes, and dislikes. All this results in children who can express themselves confidently, which results in less frustration. Self-esteem and feelings of competence develop naturally as toddlers successfully engage in fun and meaningful activities. This helps in developing a well-rounded happier child.
The toddlers explore and engage in activities in the areas of Practical Life, Sensorial, Language, Music, Physical Education, Dance, Art, and Nature
