Children are accepted into the Toddler Class when they are two years old. Children in the 3 to 6 year old class are accepted if they are potty trained and three years old by August 1st. If a class is full children may be registered on a waiting list. Siblings of a child enrolled in the school are given first consideration for admission. Otherwise, children are considered for admission in the order of application. Countryside Montessori School admits qualified students regardless of race, religion, or national or ethnic origin.
After an application has been received, notification of acceptance of a child for admission is made by letter. Upon acceptance, parents complete and return an Enrollment Form, Sign the Policy Form and Pony Riding/Headgear Form, Immunization Record, and a Medical Permit. The Enrollment form requests additional information about the child and an agreement by the parents that the child will attend school. The forms should be returned within 10 days of the date of acceptance. A payment in the amount of one month’s tuition for each child is due with the completed forms. This payment is applied to tuition for the first month. There is also a Child Information Form that needs to be completed regarding important diet restrictions, medical conditions, etc.
