Morning Star Montessori is a small private Montessori School where all children are welcome. We attempt to achieve a balance of age, sex and experience in each class.

Children with special needs or barriers to learning are considered for admission on merit and on the school’s ability to accommodate the learner.

Viewing the School
It is suggested that the parent makes an appointment for an interview with the Principal Jenny Miller to view the school and its facilities. This affords the parent the opportunity to meet Jenny and the directresses and get a feeling for the school environment.

After this interview, the next step would be the assessment of the child.

Child Assessment
This assessment is a very gentle, stress-free visit which, depending on the age of the child, involves the child joining the class for a morning (or a few hours).

This is a wonderful opportunity for the child to experience first hand what the class is like and also an opportunity for the directress and principal to meet the child and assess whether or not the child is suited to our Montessori environment and if so, where the child should be placed within the classes.

All decisions are based on the best interests of the child and of the existing children in the class.

Assessment Feedback
The parent will receive feedback from the Principal regarding the child's assessment morning. These findings will be discussed and arrangements made with regard to formalising enrolment.

Admission formalization
The admission form will be provided and explained to the parent by the Principal. This documentation must be completed and signed by the child's parents and returned to the school together with all other relevant documentation requested.

Conformation of admission and enrollment
Only upon the receipt of the following by the school, will the child be guaranteed a place at the Morning Star Montessori school:

  • Payment of the child's registration fee in full
  • The completed and signed admission form
  • The signed Morning Star Montessori Agreement of Code of Conduct
  • Certified copy of Child's Birth Certificate
  • Copy of Parent's/Parents' Identity Document
  • A copy of the child's "Road to Health" Card and Immunization report (or if your child has not been immunized please provide a letter stating that this is the case).

Upon receipt of the above by the school, the parent will be issued with a "Confirmation of Admission" letter which confirms and sets out the child's enrolment in the school.

Please Note: Should you decide not to take up your place at Morning Star Montessori, the registration fee will be forfeited.
