We look forward to meeting you and your child!
Please call for an appointment at 905 824 9246 to observe the children in an ideal learning environment.
The best way to understand a Montessori environment is to see it in action.
1. FILL OUT AN INQUIRY FORM.
Complete our short inquiry form, at the bottom of the CONTACT US page of our website. Please provide us with your child's age, expected admission date and the choice of the full day or half day program and submit . You will receive a reply from the school informing you of the date and time of your visit to the school.
2. COME IN FOR AN INTERVIEW & FAMILY VISIT.
Once the inquiry form has been received by the school, the parents will be invited by the Admissions Office to visit the school.
Assessment: All prospective students must accompany the parents during the assessment visit.
Each new student must undergo an assessment to determine their needs and whether or not our school would be a good fit.
Assessments will be scheduled by the school supervisor. Your child will spend some time with the teacher. This allows them an opportunity to meet us and feel comfortable in our setting. We believe that this is important and helps provide confidence for a smooth transition.
During the meeting Interactive Readiness Assessments are conducted in person to assess the best match of each child’s needs to our Montessori programme. The child’ Social interaction, independence and behavioural development level is also assessed to determine the child’s suitability for our program.
It is mandatory that any child enrolled in the Casa program be reasonably independent regarding feeding ability and is fully toilet-trained in order to be accepted.
During this visit the parents will have an opportunity to observe the school premises and the class rooms.
The school Directress or the school staff will explain the school teaching methodology to the parents and answer all related questions.
