Our Montessori Daycare Curriculum

We provide love and care every day at Casa Dia Montessori Kinswood. Your child will receive a full Montessori education with a specific emphasis on hands-on learning through arts and crafts. Materials in a Montessori setting are more like tools for self-discovery and engaging with the world around them. By putting an emphasis on independence and self-expression, children develop an enthusiasm for learning which will follow them for the rest of their lives.

We provide your child with the guidance and environment they need to help them thrive. Our teachers provide many opportunities for infants and children to explore in a safe and friendly space designed just for them. Our daycare activities build off of the basic branches of the Montessori Method, which include:

  • Practical Life
  • Sensorial
  • Language
  • Mathematics
  • Cultural

Daycare vs Montessori

Kids 6 weeks and 6 years are accepted at daycare centers, but dividing children based on age before elementary school is more difficult because children develop at vastly different rates. Lessons may bore children or go over their heads when they are separated by age, that’s why we follow the Montessori way of grouping children, which is based on developmental markers. Grouping by stage versus age ensures that lessons engage children and encourage good self-esteem.

Why Choose Casa Dia Montessori Kinswood

Individualized Approach

Teachers work one-on-one with children to guide their self-discovery through self-direction and self-discipline. This unique approach enables children to discover their true potential and develop an organized and focused mind. Children are encouraged to teach, collaborate, and help each other. From social and emotional development to gross motor skills and cognitive abilities, we prepare children to be curious, lifelong learners.

Professional Staff

It is our passion to nurture each child’s independence and understanding of the world, that’s why our entire staff encourages children to engage in experiences at their own pace. Since children guide learning, no day is the same. Our teachers spend time working with children of different ages as they learn and grow. Every member of our trained staff gives each child the support, care, and attention they need to succeed.
