Casa Dei Bambini Montessori's Toddler program provides a safe, nurturing atmosphere, allowing for a child's freedom of movement and learning directed by a child's interest. Children experience cognitive and motor development by hands-on activities at an unhurried pace. The children are given time to become captivated by a concept, and are encouraged to develop their potential in their own time. The materials provided range from simple shapes and colors; things to put into containers; threading large beads; knobbed puzzles and other materials that prepare them for writing and other fine muscle activities later on. Practical life skills At this stage children are taught self-control, and are helped to develop a healthy self image. The teachers encourage children to participate in real activities such as sorting, sweeping, dusting and buttoning. In this environment children discover that there is a place for everything, which answers to the needs of a young child for order of both time and place.

Art Pupils are taught to master the motor skills necessary to handle scissors, pencils, crayons, paint brushes, etc. Their knowledgeable teachers encourage them to plan, set up, actively create, and clean up each project. The pupils are free to construct their own creations. Care is taken to allow many avenues of expression using various media. Geography The young child's introduction to geography begins with the multi-sensory approach. Pupil's satisfy their curiosity about the people of the world through a variety of globes, maps, picture cards, photographs, toys, and books that centre on various cultures. Language The language area is designed to help the children enrich and refine their ability to express themselves and understand the expression of others. The phonetic reading and writing program provides the phonetic foundation preparing the Montessori child to spell and read. Math Principles are acquired through multi-sensory exercises to help pupils form a solid foundation for understanding basis Math concepts. Children will touch, manipulate, and count. These types of concrete experiences become the first steps in developing an understanding of abstract mathematics. Music The early childhood years are a sensitive period for music to children, they develop the skills of listening and communication that are essential in the mastery of both music and language. The Montessori classroom's approach to music combines singing, playing, listening, moving to rhythm, creating a steady progression towards musicality. Practical life These activities form a bridge between the home and school environments and they are the foundation for all other areas in the Montessori classroom. The practical life area focuses on the child developing a sense of order and on increasing the child's concentration span. These exercises foster growth in thinking and organizational skills, which promote the logical, sequential thinking necessary for language and mathematical studies. Science At primary level science stimulates the child's curiosity, encourages active observation, and builds scientific vocabulary. Materials evolve sequentially from inorganic to the organic. The younger child experiments and the older child is able to verbalize what happened and why. Sensorial The sensorial area provides training to expand the child's sensory perceptions and knowledge of the world. Children learn on how to sort, differentiate and sequence colors, dimensions, weights, forms, textures, sounds, odors and tastes. Having mastered these skills children are ready to move on to language, math, geography, and science areas.
