About Casa Mia Montessori Community School:

At Casa Mia, we recognise that the children are influenced by things around them and interact with everything socially, emotionally, with language, creatively, physically and mentally. For ease of communication, we name this process educating the whole child. Educating the whole child is necessary to give them the opportunity to reach their full potential.

At Casa Mia we know that children learn despite us; we know the quality of the learning is dependent on the quality and intensity of our children’s relationships with their environments; we know the children need to be active, need numerous experiences of the same things; need consistent modelling from others around them and repeated opportunities to apply and practice.

We know when real learning takes place, the children will want to be independent; will be truthful; be fair and just; strive to be open and accountable; be consistent and reliable; will want to keep learning and always pursue their personal best whilst being cooperative; will be accepting of everyone’s talents and differences and care for the environment in which they live.

To apply for this job email your details to principal@casamiamontessori.wa.edu.au.
