A typical Casa Piccola playgroup session
Parents and children are greeted at the door with a handshake
1 hour: Indoor / Outdoor Exploration
Children may choose from a range of experiences from our Montessori areas of Language, Art, Music, Practical Life and Sensorial work. These activities are chosen according to the interests and developmental needs of both individual children and the group and are included to directly promote exposure to a range of hands-on skills and to foster independence, repetition and concentration.
10-15 mins: Group snack time
Children share the fruit or vegetable they have bought with them and some social time at the table together.
Final 10-15 mins: Music and movement
Children and adults join in some mat time singing and dancing with familiar rhymes and songs!
Families say goodbye at the door with a handshake again!
