Enrolment Process 

Before you begin your child's enrolment process you will need to contact the school to make a time for a school visit. During this visit you will be invited to observe the classroom/s in operation. 

 

The order of priority for offers of place will be as follows:

  1. Returning children.
  2. Siblings of current primary students at Gisborne Montessori School.
  3. Children transferring from other Montessori Educational Facilities in order to attend the primary school.
  4. Children on the waiting list as per chronological order of receipt of registration.*

Gisborne Montessori School Fee Philosophy

We understand that an independent school education is a big investment for most families and we thank you for considering Gisborne Montessori School for your children. The School’s desire is to provide affordable authentic Montessori education.

The School’s Tuition fees are designed to be a simple and all-inclusive cost. These fees include all specialist classes, excursions, food, text books, stationery, and activities as required. In other words, the fees cover everything except optional activities such as instrumental music and camps. There are discounts available for siblings. Please contact the school for a current Fee Schedule.

Some families may still find the financial investment required is out of reach despite their intense desire for a Montessori Education for their child or children and suitability for our community. Such families may wish to apply for a scholarship. Scholarships may be available from time to time – see Community Scholarship page. There is also a download link for the scholarship form below.
