The school will schedule the Admission Interview. It will last approximately for one hour and is a wonderful opportunity to get to know the Montessori methodology and school procedures. It will also help understand what to expect from the Montessori experience. You will also get to see the environments.
Admission is granted on the basis of readiness of the child for schooling and whether the parents’ educational philosophy is compatible with that of the school. For children above 5 years there will be a formal evaluation. Criteria for acceptance will vary by age and may include teacher assessments based on interviews, make-up of current classes and available space. The parents have to share any special or health needs their child may have.
If admitted the admission letter will be sent by mail. Once the school receives confirmation by mail and the non refundable admission fee has been paid along with the term fee, on or before the intimated date, the child will be officially enrolled in the school records.
