“The first three years of life are the most fundamental in the development of human beings and their potential” - MARIA MONTESSORI
The Casetta offers a gentle introduction to social life beyond the family. A small community of children (age 14 months to just under 3 years) come together, collaborating in the everyday activities of life, building their skills and independence as they go.
In the first years of life, your child is creating the fundamental elements of their personality and character, the mindset and attitudes they will carry with them into their adult life.
In the Casetta they will learn to make decisions, to persevere, gain self-discipline, experience success and consider the needs of others. These qualities are not taught, but emerge naturally within a community of children of mixed ages, alongside adults who combine love with knowledge of how children grow.
