Primary Enrollment Procedures (Toddler info on Toddler page)

The parent calls the school to set up a tour before or after sending in the Registration Form.   Observations are for parents after their child has been offered a spot.  When the school receives the Registration Form and fee the family is contacted through e-mail and informed that:
A spot has been reserved for the child pending the interview OR the child is placed on the waiting list for the appropriate entrance year and the parent will be contacted if/when there is an opening.

Placement Procedures:

1. The school contacts the parent with an offer for the child’s entrance based on the registration form request.
2. The parent responds to the offer by confirming or rejecting the offer.

The school confirms the offer and the child is placed in the Morning Montessori Class, Afternoon Montessori Class, or Montessori/Extended Care Class.  Once the child begins Trent they will remain in the same Montessori class until they graduate from Kindergarten.  There are no Montessori Class changes once they begin school unless requested by the Administrator/Assistant Admin.
4. The parent confirms placement acceptance.

5. The school sets up an interview for the child with a teacher and the parent meets with the Administrator.
