Montessori Casa Program Descriptions
Montessori Casa offers Early Childhood Montessori Programs for Toddler Age (19 mos to 3 yrs of age) at Killarney; Preschool Age (3 and 4 yrs of age) at both locations; and Kindergarten Age Children at both locations.
For the 2020-2021 School Year in Alberta, children can start kindergarten in the fall of 2020 if they turn 5 years old on or before Dec. 31, 2020. Kindergarten Age Children can access our lunch program in between our Casa Montessori program and their CBE Montessori Kindergarten at Killarney Elementary and Lake Bonavista Elementary Schools. The lunch program is part of the KinderCasa Program, which includes supervised playtime and walks to and from the schools. Our Out of School Care programs for Kindergarten Age at both locations offer options for Before Care, After Care, and Before and After Care which include all-day programming and fun on non-instructional (PD) days, Early Dismissal Fridays, and some school holidays. Drop-in Care is available on PD days and Early Dismissal Fridays for Kindergarten Age students who attend our lunch program but are not enrolled in Before or After Care, for an additional fee.
Our Out of School Care Program also offers a Montessori-inspired Before and After Care for School Age children in Grades 1- 6. It includes supervised walks to and from the schools and indoor and outdoor recreation and learning. Before Care, After Care, and Before and After Care options include all-day programming and fun on non-instructional (PD) days, early dismissal Fridays and some school holidays. Drop-in Care is available on PD days and Early Dismissal Fridays for School Age students, for an additional fee.
Please note that our programs run 5 days/week as per our annual calendar and that we are open from September to June each year. Certain days during the Christmas Break and Spring Break camps will run for K - 6 children with sufficient enrolment.
