Striving for excellence while guiding children on the path towards independence and responsibility

Admissions

Parents and children are requested to tour our school facilities, preferably before submitting an application. We are eager to show visitors our school and explain its unique educational approach. We also want to ensure that parents understand our philosophy and practices.

We suggest that a tour during the regular school day is a far better experience because it allows you to see our students in attendance and engaged in classroom activities. Tours are held on Tuesday mornings at 10:00 a.m.  Please call the office at 604-461-1223 to book your tour.

[p]Before submitting an application, we request parents and children to tour our school facilities. Families are welcome to visit the school for a tour throughout the year. Placement will be offered based on availability. Please contact the office to arrange a tour of our school at 604-461-1223.

An Application Form together with the Application fee of $50.00 is required before an interview with parents and children will be arranged. One Application Form is required for each child that you intend to enroll.  However, the  Application fee of $50 is per family, covering additional siblings.  Please be informed that an application does not guarantee acceptance.

Our primary goal in the recruitment and admissions process is to help each family determine whether our school is the perfect match with their family values and goals, and that the school setting will work best for their individual child.  In making admission decisions, we will weigh many factors, placing the greatest emphasis on whether the parents are deeply committed to sending their child to our school and whether their values and goals for their child’s education are a close match with those of our school.

It is not our intention to convince prospective parents that our school is right for them and for their child. Instead we will be truthful and transparent, and help them to grasp the true nature of the school and what it has to offer.

 

After careful consideration of the above factors, we will accept applications for admission in the following priority:

  • returning current students;
  • siblings of current students;
  • past students;
  • siblings of past students;
  • students with Montessori experience; and
  • students without Montessori experience.

 

An interview is arranged after an application form and fee is received by the school office.[/p]
