Commencing in January 2017, Casa Mia Montessori is proud to offer an Extend Ed programme for the 3 year olds on an optional or by request basis.
The younger children will go out to play with the older children. After play they will have a quiet time followed by informal activities under supervision until they are picked up at 3pm or alternatively walked by Casa Mia staff to after school arrangements in the vicinity of the School. (See Parent Resources)
Families that wish to sign their children up for Extend Ed will need to select the days, fixed for the whole term. This is to ensure that the School will always offer the correct ratio of supervision of 10 children to 1 adult for this age group.
Arrangements will be made prior to the start of a term. Fees will be charged together with the term fees. The minimum requirement is two sessions per week per child. Naturally the maximum is five per week.
- $25 per session per child for a fixed booking payable before the start of term
- $30 per session per child for a casual booking payable on the same day. Whilst casual bookings are possible, depending on the student numbers, preference for places will be given to regular bookings.
- No Child Care Benefit/Rebate is available because Casa Mia Montessori is a registered school. However, families may be eligible to claim a small portion of the fees back via the Child Care benefit for Registered Care Scheme. Forms are available from the office. Information is available from Centrelink.
