As a Montessori School, Casa Mia Montessori does not expect the children to wear a school uniform each day to school. It is encouraged that the uniform be worn on special occasions and excursion days.
In general, in traditional 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 the font Victorian Modern Cursive. In Children’s House the children will be taught the correct formation of some capital letters and the lower case letters. In the first two years of Lower Primary, the children will learn to place the letters correctly on the line and when to use capital letters. In the third year of Lower Primary, the children learn to writing ‘joining letters.
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.
Casa Mia doesn’t yet cater for before and after school care but has two after care services close by.
