Although the entrance age varies in individual schools, a child usually enters a Montessori Casa classroom between the ages of 2-½ and 4 years old, depending on when the child can be happy and comfortable in a classroom situation. He will begin with the simplest of exercises based on activities which all children enjoy. The equipment which he uses at the age of three and four will help him to develop the concentration, coordination and work habits necessary for the more advanced exercises he will perform at five and six. The entire program of learning is purposefully structured. Therefore, optimum results cannot be expected either for the child who misses the early years of the cycle, or for one who is withdrawn before he finishes Kindergarten.Enrol a Child
