What information do we need?

In order to assess your application for enrolment we will need information about your child’s education so that we can assess your child’s suitability to our School and to the Montessori Method of education. Not every child’s learning style or temperament is suited to the Montessori Method, which requires a high level of self direction from students.

  • A completed Application for Enrolment Form
  • Copies of all school reports from previous schools
  • Academic documents and/or professional assessment reports (Psychologist / Occupational Therapist / Speech Therapist / Behavioural Optometrist / Learning Support / etc.
