Admissions

The Montessori Centre and Wee Wisdom International Montessori welcomes children from ages 18 months to grade 6 (12 years). Admissions are made directly if space is available or from a waiting list when space becomes available. If a child is accepted, a completed application form with a non-refundable fee is required. Prospective parents wishing to tour the school facility or observe a selected classroom should do so by an appointment.

 

Important Requirements:

  • Transcripts and health records of the child are required.
  • A letter from child’s previous school.
  • Last academic evaluation report.
  • Any psychological evaluation conducted on the child within the last 3 years.

Children ages 6 and older will be assessed using the standards of The Montessori Centre, the results of which will help in placing the child in a particular grade. An appointment to meet the child is made and a 1-3 day orientation date for the child will be selected.
