At Bambino Montessori, we encourage and celebrate a rich cultural diversity. Our school does not discriminate in any manner with regard to disability, race, religion, gender or national origin. Class size is determined by several factors with a teacher, student ration of 1:15 as a benchmark. In applying the Montessori Method effectively, we try to balance the ages, genders, skill levels, talents and personalities in our classrooms. We encourage families to follow the admission procedure below when considering enrolment at the Bambino.
Families are welcome to visit our school during operating hours 08:30 until 13:00. To ensure that staff will be available to give you a tour of the grounds, describe the school, discuss curriculum and answer any questions you may have, please call ahead to schedule an appointment.
2. STUDENT VISIT
We request that students spend 2hours in the environment as part of the admission procedure. This is necessary to give the teachers an opportunity to observe the child’s adaptation to our teaching methods and also allows the child to make a more informed decision about their feelings towards the school. It is necessary to make appointment for these visits. The office staff will assist in scheduling observations for weekday morning hours. Parents may call +27 016 060 0502. After the student has spent some time in the classroom, the supervising teacher will arrange an interview with the parents to discuss the visit and answer any question that parents may have about the classroom and the Montessori principles our school follows. You will be given an application form at this point.
After careful consideration of our program, parents may fill out an application form for their children. If all classes are full, the child’s name
will be entered on the waiting list. You will be notified within one week of the status of your application.
When students are offered and accept places at Bambino, registration forms, registration fees and all other enrolment forms (medical,
emergency, etc.) will be due. Registration fees are payable on or before the first day of the learner’s attendance at school. If payment
is effected by way of electron Funds transfer, parents are to submit the proof of payment together with all enrolment forms to the Office.
