Grounded with basic skills and abilities, children aged 2.5 to 6 years join the Alder Ridge Academy Casa program where we enhance their development by honing key concepts, values and capabilities.
Children in this program are provided greater instruction and greater independence. Also following core Montessori concepts, children are taught to ask questions and challenge their world, thereby reinforcing the concept of learning through inquiry. Our Casa students will emerge empowered and confident; resilient and humble.
During the Casa years, student exposure is augmented. Language: English and French, Math, Science, Technology and Arts form the core of our Montessori based curriculum.
Our small class sizes of sixteen children to two certified teachers, ensure that each child has ample opportunity to connect with peers and instructors.
