PM's Enrolment Process

Due to our personalised approach to each of our student's education, we are able to accept enrolments throughout the school year and at any age level if space is available.

1. Make an Enquiry

To discuss your needs with our Enrolments Team please contact us or send an enrolment enquiry and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Please review our Fee Schedule and Policy, as well as information regarding our Montessori appoach to familiarise yourself with our school.

2. Book a Tour

Playgroup: Child and Carer Program (0 to 3 years)

Playgroup is a great way to learn about Montessori and see if it is right for your child and family. We welcome you to book a tour and then to stay on to experience your first session free of charge.

Cycle 1: Pre-Kindy, Kindy & Pre-Primary (3 to 6 years)

At Perth Montessori, school starts at 3 years of age.

Children do best in Cycle 1 when they can join from 3 years old. We encourage you to book a tour in the year prior to your child's 3rd birthday to avoid disappointment as entry at this age is prioritised. Please book a tour online today.

Cycle 2+: All other age groups: Year 1 and above (6+ years)

If you are interested in your child joining Perth Montessori and they will soon be turning 6 years old or are older, please complete an enrolment enquiry and our Enrolments Team will get back to you as soon as possible. Typically you will be invited to take a private tour of the school with the Principal.

2. Make an Application 

If you've completed a tour and are keen to apply for a place for your child, you will need to fill in an Application For Enrolment form which will be provided on completion of your tour. Once we receive your application form we will let you know whether a place is available or if you have been put on the waiting list.

3. Classroom Observation

When a place is available, our Enrolments Team will contact you to arrange a suitable time for you to do an observation in the class that your child will likely be joining. Observation is important in Montessori settings as it gives you an opportunity to better understand how the classrooms work. Observations need only be completed by one parent or carer and it is preferable that your child does not attend.

4. Interview

Following a classroom observation you and your child will be invited to an interview with the Principal. The interview is an opportunity for both parties to get to know each other better and to discuss questions about the school, its Montessori program, and any specific needs of your child. It is also an opportunity for us to understand more about your expectations and why you have chosen Perth Montessori.

5. Trial

In some cases, a trial is required prior to an offer of a place. This is intended to determine your child's suitability to our learning approach and programs, as well as for the student and your family to ensure it is the right fit. Montessori education is typically only entered from 3 years of age, but where places are available and we believe that the style will be suited to them, we may be able to offer a place.

6. Offer of a Place

Following the interview and review of any supplementary information provided and if relevant the trial experience, a Letter of Offer will be sent. 

7. Acceptance and Confirmation of a Place

If you wish to accept the offered place for your child, you must return the Acceptance documentation within 14 days. At this point, payment of the Enrolment Confirmation Fee is required to secure your place. 

Should you not wish to accept the offer of a place, we would really appreciate you notifying our Enrolments Team so we can offer the place to the next family on the waitlist.
