Admissions Policies and Procedures

RMPS has a non-discriminatory admissions policy of enrolment for children starting at 13 months to age 6.

The toddler program is designed for children as young as 13 months who are independently walking, able to drink from a sippy cup and can participate in the program without a morning nap. Potty training is part of the toddler program. Parents can choose from half-day, full-day and extended-day programs.

Every prospective student, along with parent(s) is/are required to meet with the Head Directress and Admissions Director to discuss possibilities of enrolment.

Preference for enrolment will be given to children that are independent in their toileting skills for the junior and senior kindergarten programs. Montessori school transfer students and children who will attend at least two full years before entering the first grade.

The Montessori Casa program is essentially a three-year program, which includes Pre-School, Junior Kindergarten and Senior Kindergarten (3- 6yrs).
