Perth Montessori follows a structured enrolment process to ensure all applications for enrolment are conducted consistently and fairly and that students and families are offered our professional services at all times.
PM is a non-selective school with no entrance exams, so students are placed on the School’s enrolment list according to the date on which their application is received.
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. Initial Enquiry & School Tour
Please contact our enrolments team if you would like to discuss your family's educational needs.
We recommend you book a tour to learn about Perth Montessori and to find out if our school might be suitable for your family. If you are unable to attend a tour in person before wanting to make an application, please contact our enrolments team to discuss your particular situation.
2. Make an Application
Following a tour, if you wish to apply for a place for your child, you will need to complete an application form and pay the non-refundable application fee. The form will have been provided, along with other relevant documentation, during your tour. Please return this to our enrolments team.
A copy of your child’s Birth Certificate and Immunisation History from My Gov is required for making an application. If available, please also provide any academic or medical reports with your child's application.
If your child was born overseas or you do not have permanent residency, it is also essential that Visa status documentation also be included with the documentation at this stage.
3. Application Confirmation
Once we have received your completed application, we will acknowledge receipt by email. All applicants are put on a waitlist for the nominated year level of entry according to the date your completed application is received.
4. Class Observation/Trial & Interview
Students entering Cycle 1, 2 or 3
Parents/carers will be invited to undertake a class observation and follow-up interview with the Principal.
Students entering Cycle 4 or 5
Students need to attend at least one trial day (this can be extended depending on the student's needs) and follow-up interview with the Principal with their parents/carer.
5. Offer of a Place
Based on the application and interview, along with the availabilty of a place, a Letter of Offer may be forwarded to you. This is typically done within 2 weeks of your interview with the Principal. If no places are currently available at your child's level, we will add them to our waitlist and keep in touch.
6. Acceptance and Confirmation of a Place
If you wish to accept the offered place for your child, then the acceptance documentation provided with the Offer Letter will need to be returned to the enrolments team within 14 days of the written offer (or prior to commencement – whichever is earlier). Payment of the relevant fees and non-refundable Entry Confirmation Fee are also required to confirm your child's place.
Should you not wish to accept the offer of a place, we would appreciate you notifying our enrolments team.
