Kennedy Montessori School

Application Process - How to Apply

"The essence of independence is to be able to do something for one’s self." - Maria Montessori

Applying to Kennedy Montessori School is a very straightforward and easy process. 

There are four steps for application to our school. Expand on the steps below to learn more about each step of the application process:

Step 1: Book a Tour

The first step is to book a school tour online or by calling us directly at 905-948-1785.

We generally book school tours for mid-morning times to give you a good sense of how the classes work.

On your first visit you are very welcome to either come on your own or to bring your child along. 

Step 2: Assessment

Each student must undergo an assessment by the school to determine their needs and whether or not the school has the resources to meet their needs.

Assessments will be scheduled by the Principal.

During this time, we may request a copy of any formal assessments you may have for your child. This gives us a sense of whether our school can meet your child's needs if they are exceptional.

For children who have prior school experience, we may also request a copy of your previous school's report card for the current and prior year.

Step 3: Family Interview

It is important for us to meet both parents wherever possible. In order for your child to have success at school a strong relationship between school and home needs to be forged. 

The family interview is scheduled by the principal and is an opportunity to determine whether our philosophy is congruent with your own and to answer more detailed questions about the school year.

Within a week of the family interview, you will be notified of the status of your application.

Step 4: Registration

Once your application is approved, the last step is to complete the necessary paperwork for registering your child and welcoming them to our school.

Paperwork includes your application form, emergency contact info, and a parent consent form. You will also be given a parent orientation handbook to familiarize yourself with our school policies, important dates, etc.

So what are you waiting for? Book a school tour online or call us directly at 905-948-1785 to begin the process of enrolling your child in a Montessori Program today!
