La Casita’s Mission
mission is to provide a unique bilingual learning environment based on
the Montessori philosophy of education. La Casita guides the
child to learn about different cultures in the world and the role that
appreciation of diversity and cultural understanding play in promoting
world peace. Our environment also fosters fundamental habits,
skills and approaches, which encourage a lifetime of creative learning.
Casita, like the Montessori philosophy itself, strives to explore its
physical environmental and human community using it as a resource for
learning as well as a receptacle for its work.
Casita employs cultural arts experiences through language, dance,
cuisine and crafts. This curriculum is combined with the
geography, history, mathematics and science. These subjects
stimulate discovery and reflection and encourage the child’s
appreciation for the world and his/her place in it.
