Toddler Admission Registration Process

  1. For Toddler admission, call the school at (613) 216-7275 or email us to make an appointment for a personal visit. Please note that the visit may take up to one hour of your time. You will be briefly introduced to the Montessori Education and our daily routine, as well as have the opportunity to tour our facility and ask questions.
  2. Once you are interested in registering your child in our Toddler program and have been informed that we have openings available, please submit an application form accompanied by an application fee of $150. If our program is currently full, your child can be placed on a waiting list at no cost. When a spot becomes available, the school will contact you on a first-come-first basis.
  3. Once your application form and fee have been received by our school office, you will be provided with an enrollment package. Upon receipt of that package, please submit the following to our school office within 5 working business days:
    a) all documents/forms listed in the enrollment package (signed and dated)
    b) $2,500 deposit (Note that this deposit goes towards your child’s tuition fee)
    c) $250 maintenance fee
    d) tuition lump sum and/or all post-dated cheques

Please note that all the above listed requirements must be fully met for your child to be considered officially enrolled at our school.

Priority is always given to already enrolled students and their siblings.
