    Admissions Process

    Step 1: Parent Visit
    • Schedule a weekly campus tour with the admission office (held normally throughout the week afternoons 2 -4pm throughout the school year by appointment) You can also visit at other times provided prior arrangements have been made with school authorities. NB: Given the nature of the parent visit, this is an adults-only session.
    Step 2: Application
    • Apply for your child and a non-refundable 20LBUs application fee. Applications are available ONLINE HERE. Applications are valid for two years from the date of submission. NB: Please contact the Admission Office to inquire about available spaces in your child’s grade level or program.
    Step 3: Child Visit
    • A child visit is required for all applicants. Infants and Middle-Class applicants spend approximately 1 hour working on lessons with one of our Montessori lead Directors to assess developmental readiness. Grade zero and Grade 1s Program applicants spend a minimum of two full school days with us, engaging in the Montessori environment. NB. Variations to the above can be discussed with school authorities
    Step 4: Reference letter
    • A recommendation from the applicant’s current teacher is required from Middle Class and above. Teacher recommendations are confidential and must be mailed directly to the Admissions Office. If your child does not currently attend school, please submit a letter from someone who knows your child. For example: a teacher, church, or daycare center leader.
    Step 5: Decision
    • Admissions decisions are communicated to parents earliest within a week and continue on a rolling basis as the application process is completed. Enrollment Contracts, accompanied by a 150LBUs non-refundable deposit that is credited toward tuition, are due to Little Bees Montessori preschool by the time of admission to secure your child’s space. We undertake a very deliberate and thoughtful approach when deciding whether to offer an enrollment contract, factoring in all the information gleaned throughout this entire process.
    NB: Siblings of current families are given priority placement. We give preference to families whose goals and intentions for their children align with the Montessori philosophy and who embrace the long-term value of Little Bees Montessori education.
