My son attended this school in the spring of 2014 for Pre-K and we miss it greatly. Their staff is kind and knowledge and also insightful into your child's learning process. Even though our son in an intense little guy the learning environment they have created brought out something wonderful in our inquisitive 5-year-old. During his short time there we watched him grow and occasionally struggle with his sense of belonging but never the less thrive and feel accepted by Mrs. Donna and Mrs. Mary and their great staff. To this day we miss Casa Montessori of Deland and are greatful for what they did for our son.

My son spent two years in the toddler program at Casa. He has learned far more than his peers and in a much calmer environment. Parent teacher communication is amazing. I receive at least one email a week and text his teacher almost daily. Once my family adjusted to the methods used to teach responsibility at such a young age, we felt there was no better choice than Casa. The teachers are professional yet approachable. The school is fairly laid back and has high expectations. Montessori may not be for every child because we all learn differently but for my son it has done wonders. He is advanced verbally, mathmatically, and socially. He says please and thank you without being told to do so and wants to do everything on his own. He potty trained very early and understands things like emotions that other kids his age may not. Of course my husband and I take some credit but the majority must go to his school and teachers. They speak to him like an adult not in baby talk. They respect him and in turn he respects those around him. Sadly we are moving or my son would definitely be staying at Casa up through elementary.

Teachers, especially administrator, are often absent and subsitutes are used far too often. Also, have heard school has financial problems.

Casa Montessori School is a great buy in private school education. The children have wonderful one on one attention and benefit from not only academic instruction but guidance in self control and independence. A Montessori curriculum gives your child wonderful skills to help them succeed in life. In addition to the long standing and excellent toddler and primary programs, Casa now offers lower and upper elementary classes. The elementary teacher is amazing and trained in Bergamo, Italy. She also holds advanced degrees in education and is wonderful at bringing out the best in a child. Class size is small enough to allow very personal instruction for your child. I highly recommend Casa.

The staff at Casa are amazing and really help the children to reach their full potential. I would not send my children anywhere else. Montessori is education the way it was meant to be, and the children just thrive.

If you are looking for a true Montessori Education for your child or children this is the place to be. I would not consider any other private school in the area. The staff at this school has an amazing way with children. The school and grounds are amazing and beautiful.

This school is the best private preschool bar none. I have taught at 2 montessori schools and have been a parent at a different montessori school and Casa is the most well-rounded montessori experience a child can attain. If you are looking for an excellent preschool with a great community of parents, call Casa. Its the best start you can give to your child.

This school is new and the materials they use at classes are self-correcting and provide exciting and productive experience for the children, develop sensorial, mathematics and language skills. Also, children learn doing things in practical life like washing their clothes, cleaning themselves, sawing, good manners, etc, and there is a garden where children develop gardening skills and they have animals that children can take care of. Teachers are AMI certified with lot of experience and teach one-on-one. I was looking for a school that it is not the traditional system where one teacher speaks to the whole class and if you get, it is ok and if you don t get it, it is ok also, I think I have found the best for my children in this school. Take a look for yourself, take a tour and you will see the difference. A happy parent.
