The school opened in 1974 and operates under a chartered, non-profit corporation. CASA's mission is to motivate its students from within by a natural curiosity and love for knowledge. The goal of education should not be to fill the child with facts but rather to cultivate his/her own natural desire to learn. All CASA teachers are AMI-certified (Association Montessori International), and the school submits to periodic inspections to maintain its AMI affiliation.
Admission of students is based on parent-child interviews with the directress of the school. Children in the primary class are not expected to have a background in Montessori, but the upper levels of the primary class and those in the elementary class must have either a Montessori background or a demonstrated ability for the child to operate successfully in the atmosphere of a Montessori classroom. Children who attend CASA dei Bambini can be expected to make as much or more progress academically as they would in a traditional public or private school, meeting all requirements for advancement to high school.
