The Admission Process
Schedule a tour with our director, Mary Koenig
Welcoming a new family into the Casa Montessori community is a fairly fluid process where the family is invited to get to know the campus with an initial tour. It is recommended that tours be scheduled in advance by contacting our school office at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tours are conducted Monday-Friday at around 9:00 am while the morning work cycle is in full swing. This way, prospective families can see the normal day-to-day rhythms and practices of the classroom which would assist them in deciding whether Casa Montessori is right for their child.
After a discussion with the parents regarding their educational intentions for their child and an evaluation of the child's previous Montessori experience (particularly at the primary, elementary and adolescent levels), a child may be invited to visit the class for a day or two. Your child will be given the opportunity to work one-on-one with Montessori teachers doing Montessori lessons as well as work with other children in the classroom.
Mary will follow up with the teachers to evaluate the success of the visit and your child's integration into the Montessori classroom. If your child is ready to begin attending Casa Montessori, your child will receive an invitation and a start date will be agreed upon by you and the teacher.
Submission of Registration Fee, Contract, and School Forms
Once you accept your child's invitation and before they begin regular attendance at Casa, the registration fee must be remitted and the tuition contract must be signed. Do understand that registration fees are non-refundable and that the tuition agreement financially binds the signor for the entirety of the school year, regardless of school days missed, holidays, or early withdrawal for whatever reason. Any scholarships that the child may receive, must be in place before the child begins regular attendance at Casa. Please make sure to have all school forms filled out and required health forms submitted before the child begins regular attendance at Casa.
