Due to high demand and our small size classroom design, we recommend you submit an application form well in advance of your child’s 3rd birthday to give your child the best chance of successfully attaining a position. The steps below are for enrolment at the school. If you are interested in our on-site playgroup, please check our playgroup page.
Step 1 : School Tour/ Open Day (optional)
A pre-arranged school tour to meet the staff and develop an understanding of the Montessori program will be beneficial for your decision to enrol your child at Banksia Montessori School. Please contact our Enrolment Officer to arrange a date and time or register for our next Open Morning. Places are offered in order of the wait list. If you prefer to immediately put your child on our wait list, please go to ‘Step 2’.
Step 2: Application Form
Please fill in an Application for Admission Form and return it together with your child’s Birth Certificate to our office. A non-refundable application fee of $100 is to be paid for each application. Enrolment offers are made to families in order of the wait list and on the basis of an interview.
Step 3: Interview with Principal
Approximately two terms prior to your preferred commencement date we will invite you for an interview with the Principal. We will contact you within a few days should an offer of a place be made. Upon acceptance, there will be a non-refundable enrolment fee of $500 for administrative purposes.
Step 4: Acceptance of place
An offer of position must be accepted within 7 days. After the acceptance we will send you the enrolment paperwork to be returned to the office prior to your child’s commencement date along with your first term’s fees.
