Casa mia gives the children as many experiences to practise making decisions and develop agency.
The School does not expect the children to wear a full school uniform each day to school. The wide brimmed hat must be worn daily for sun protection.
In general, in mainstream schools, homework is given to gauge whether a child has understood a particular lesson. This is necessary when a teacher gives a lesson to twenty or thirty students at a time.
At Casa Montessori School the children are taught to write cursive.
The decision to teach cursive writing was based on research by several neurologists.
The School has a number of policies and procedures that provide for the sound management and organisation of the School as well as the safety of the students, staff and resources.
Before & After School Care
Casa Mia has the benefit of before and after school care within easy reach.
