Casa Curriculum Session
Practical Life/Sensorial/Developmental Milestone
Montessori schools are designed to prepare children for both academic success and for life. It is not the adult who shapes the child, it is the child, who through experience, creates an adult human being.
Montessori teachers facilitate the natural process of learning. There is a connection between one’s sense of self, being open to new ideas, and experience to learn.
Montessori schools work on academic excellence and character development. Teachers follow the child, stay committed to providing guidance in an enriched environment, and help the child learn to his/her fullest potential.
Join us for our Casa information session to discuss the planes of development, the years after Casa, and what you can do at home to best support your child.
Please RSVP your attendance at your earliest convenience.
Looking forward to seeing you there.

New for this school year 2017/2018! Real Food for Real Kids Catering…
Welcome to the Real Food Community – Parents
We have been very pleased with our Hot Lunch Program. Dearcroft has been working with Real Food for Real Kids catering. After listening to parent’s feedback we researched options that truly recognize the importance of healthy, fresh, nutritious meals that kids enjoy. Real Food for Real Kids came as the most highly respected leader in the community, with outstanding reviews from their clients.
While convenience is of importance, we recognize that many parents are looking for lunches that will help provide their children with energy for the whole day and set healthy eating patterns for life. Real Food for Real Kids strives to change the way children eat by helping them connect to real food. In addition to inspiring our children to make healthier choices everyday, Real Food for Real Kids is also committed to supporting local farmers and producers, and reducing their impact on the environment. We hope you will take some time to browse their website as we feel they are a great match to the values of our Dearcroft families. Hot meals will be available to all Dearcroft students, from toddler to Grade 8 (portion size adjusted). In fact, we have enjoyed the start of our experience with Real Food for Real Kids so much that we even have staff members ordering! We are very excited about starting this new program, and if you find it a struggle to provide a fresh, healthy lunch everyday then we encourage you to give it a try, no matter the age of your child.
