Namaste Montessori PDF tuition and application forms below.
Observation and School Tour
Prospective families are required to have a school tour and are encouraged to observe in a classroom before enrolling their child. Appointment for tours or observations can be made through the main office.
If at all possible, parents are encouraged to speak with the Head of School and tour the classroom before submitting an application. All applications will be processed upon receipt of a completed application form.
The application is valid for three years from the application date or until the child is no longer eligible for enrollment. If an offer for enrollment is declined for any reason, the application will be withdrawn. Please remember to notify the school if you change your address or phone number.
If there are no openings available in the program selected, your application will be placed on a waiting list. You will be contacted as soon as space becomes available and will then have two weeks in which to enroll your child by signing a contract and paying the one-month, refundable, security deposit.
All children enrolled are accepted into the program with the understanding that if the teacher feels the program cannot meet the child’s needs, the staff and parents will explore alternatives together.
A child is officially enrolled in the program when the school has received the signed enrollment agreement and tuition deposit. Enrollment in all programs is binding. Parents are responsible for tuition each month regardless of the amount of time the child attends the school.
In the Toddler and Primary levels should a family initiate withdrawal of a child, a minimum of 60 days advance written notice must be given to the school in order to receive a full refund of tuition deposit.
At the Elementary Level families are financially obligated and expected to pay tuition for the full ten month school year. If extenuating circumstances occur that require a family to break the tuition contract with the school the administration will do it’s best to fill the space and relieve further tuition obligation, but we cannot guarantee this. It is very difficult for the school, the new student and the classroom to fill an elementary space “mid-year”.
If both the parents and the school administration decide that the Namaste Montessori School program is not appropriate for an enrolled child, the child may be withdrawn and the parents relieved of any further financial responsibility.

It is possible to change programs within the school if it seems advisable to both the parents and the staff, and if space is available. The Head of School has the final decision making authority.
