After much thought and consideration, you have decided that Fountainhead Montessori School is the right choice for your child. That is great news! The process of researching options and making a choice for your child’s early education can be difficult. Now that you are confident in your choice of a school, the next step is to go through the enrollment process. At Fountainhead Montessori School, the enrollment process is not difficult but it does vary based on your child’s age and if you want to include extras such as before and aftercare and supplementary enrichment courses.
Children ages 18 months up to 5 years can be enrolled in the preschool program at Fountainhead Montessori School. The goals of the preschool program are to help students develop independence, gain self-confidence, and provide students with a positive first experience at school. Scheduling a time to observe a class is the first step in the enrollment process. Once you complete a class observation, you can get the enrollment process started by filling out the online application. If there is space available for your child’s start date, you will pay your first month’s tuition and get your child enrolled. If there is not space available for your desired start date, your child will be placed on the waitlist and you will only be charged for tuition once your start date is confirmed.
