Casa dei Bambini

Parkside Community School - Austin Texas Montessori School

January 6th is a historical date on the Montessori calendar as it marks the opening of the first Casa dei Bambini in 1907.
What those first Case dei Bambini demonstrated so clearly, while Maria Montessori was developing her ideas, is that the environment is one of the major players in her approach.

Parkside Community School
“Parkside has a wonderful reputation in the Montessori community of Austin, and thus intrigued us. But what kept us at Parkside is the love and support we felt from the teachers, admin, directors, and community. Our Primary teachers were more than just "guides" -- they obviously cared for my children in my absence. ”
