Casa Program Description Our Licensed Casa Class is based on the Montessori philosophy which strives to provide each child with an environment in which they learn and develop essential learning habits to be successful students.

Casa curriculum overview

The exercises of Practical Life are the foundation of a Montessori environment, whichallows the child to develop control and coordination of movement, awareness of their environment, orderly thought patterns, independent work habits and responsibility. The direct aim of these exercises is to master self-help skills and to build confidence and independence. The indirect aim of these exercises is to improve and refine the fine motor skills of the hand and arm muscles in preparation for writing skills.

Practical Life

Language is taught phonetically using materials which increase vocabulary, development of visual perception and correction of pronunciation. Once a child has mastered the entire alphabet, we can begin to compose and build words in steps, finally achieving reading and writing skills. In addition to English, the children will also learn French.


These exercises aim in the developing and refining of the senses by providing organised opportunities for contact with the environment. Through the isolation of the senses, a refinement of the senses can be developed. Sensorial discrimination leads from the concrete to the abstract and is a preparation for the intellectual and the logical mind.


Children are introduced to math functions through concrete materials. Gradually as the child absorbs the concepts, simple computations areintroduced in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Math is introduced using games like – ‘snake game, bank game’ so that the child learns math concepts without realizing it. The child’s learning is truly effortless!


Cultural subjects encompass Geography, Botany/Biology, Social Sciences and History, Art through indoor and outdoor activities, individually and in groups.

On our ART DAYS our resource Art Teacher will turn our classroom into a professional art studio. Children engage in visual arts and are exposed to different media like watercolours, ink, stamping, clay – all while learning about the techniques and styles of art and encouraging creativity and expression. Montessori teachers also prepare weekly take home crafts for children that often are themed with special holidays and encourage the application of fine motor skills practised each day in the classroom. Art is also infused inthe classroom by teaching different skills like cutting, gluing and tracing and drawing lines etc. RCMS is proud of its exceptional art program.


Children are introduced to the French language in the afternoon circle. French is introduced as a second language through music, audio-visual aids, music and games. In addition to this, bilingual Montessori materials are made throughout the year and made available to the children during their regular work cycles.




Dr. Montessori’s plan for elementary children was to give them a vision of the universe and to raise thinking children. She called this plan Cosmic Education: “Cosmic education will allow the child to develop a kind of philosophy which reveals the unity of the universe. This is the very thing to organize the intelligence and build principles giving the student better insight into his/her own task and place in the world.” The elementary child has entered a period of elevated awareness and developed an ability for intellectual learning. Elementary students are also driven by a desire to understand the world around them. To become part of society, the older child needs an environment that allows for social development in a non-competitive atmosphere.
