The first step is to make an appointment to observe a class, without your child, from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. This will give you an opportunity to become familiar with a Montessori environment. Please observe quietly without interrupting the children or teachers. The director, Joan, will give you the enrollment paperwork, and answer your questions. Please complete the Application for Admission, so we can contact you.
Children's Garden Montessori admits children of any race, creed, or origin and does not discriminate in any of its policies or programs.
If your child is still in diapers during the day, please enroll him or her in our Toddler classroom, or for the morning only.
Trial Period Occasionally the school may find that the program is not meeting the needs of a particular child. In a few cases, some children may demonstrate that they are not developmentally ready to be in preschool. They may show a lack of interest in developmentally appropriate materials,be overly concerned about separating from their parents, or act fearful or agressive towards other children. In this situation,we will ask for a two week trial period for your child. If he or she does not become more comfortable, we will ask you to withdraw your child. Your unused tution will be refunded. Advance notice and reason for dismissal will always be given to parents.
30 Days Notice of Withdrawal If you decide to withdraw your child, for any reason, please give the school 30 days notice. If 30 days notice is not given, tuition for the month is still due.
