Montessori Education

With Montessori education, learning and movement are inseparable. Children develop at different rates, and they learn best when they are actively involved. The Montessori approach also values the human spirit and the development of the whole child- physical, social, emotional and cognitive. The classroom is prepared by the teacher to encourage independence, freedom within limits and a sense of order. There is great respect for each child, and instruction is organized around individual developmental needs, interests and learning styles.
Montessori materials are beautifully designed. They appeal to the senses and guide the child from concrete to abstract concepts and enhance active engagement.

Educational & Developmental Goals

Research continues to support the importance of a quality early childhood education. The philosophy of Casady’s Primary Division reflects a belief that the first six years of a child’s life are among the most important in his or her education.  Our goal is to give students a rich and solid foundation in important educational concepts while nurturing their social and emotional development to prepare them to meet the challenges of their academic career, but most importantly, to develop a life-long love of learning that goes beyond classroom expectations and experiences.

In our program, young children make great progress. Parents are offered an outstanding, supportive and challenging program for their children during one of the most important periods of learning. Children learn language arts, including reading and writing, mathematics, art, cooking, science, geography, practical life skills, movement and music. Our beautiful campus offers opportunities to take a walk to see our butterfly garden, to our Chapel for weekly services and to play on our playground nestled beside the Casady Lake.
Casady School is an independent, co-educational, college preparatory, Episcopal day school serving students in pre-k-12. Educating Mind, Body, and Spirit.
