Pre-CASA Montessori Tools
With an array of authentic Montessori tools designed for toddlers age 15 months to 2.5 years, our Pre-Casa/Toddler classroom provides a nurturing home-like environment that fosters independence, creativity, language and math development, and motor movement. The Toddler materials may look simple, but based on years of observation, experiment and study, they are precisely designed. All materials support the child’s need for purposeful activity.
French, Music, Gym, & Arts Programs Included
At IMS, we believe that focusing on the whole child is crucial. Hence, a comprehensive set of enhancement programs are integrated with IMS’s core Montessori curriculum to ensure each child is developed as a well-rounded individual and is well prepared for his/her next level of education. French lessons, music classes, gym time, and arts studies are INCLUDED in our Pre-Casa/Toddler program.
