Enrolment procedure

Parents are welcome to visit our pre-school and observe our class by appointment. This visit will give you the opportunity to gain an in-depth understanding about the Montessori approach to Education. We recognise you as the influential educator in your child’s life. We value your input as you are considered an integral part of your child’s total development. Therefore we seek to partner and collaborate with you to help your child reach his or her full potential in all areas of life.

 

 

Orientation

To assist your child in settling into this new phase of life, we encourage you to attend a one or two hour introductory class with your child for the first day. We will allocate a member of staff to specially attend to your child and, along with the other children, help guide your child in settling into our environment.

After the orientation period we expect you to leave your child with us. We find this procedure essential as it is important that your child gets to establish familiarity and trust with the same teacher and to feel secure in the environment before he or she attends the full day.
