STM Registration Packet 2017-2018

San Tan Montessori’s primary goal in the recruitment and admissions process is to help each family find the perfect match between its values and goals, seeking out what will work best for the individual child and the school.  San Tan Montessori will encourage families to consider many factors prior to enrollment, including whether or not they believe their child will be successful in our Montessori program and whether their values and goals for their child’s education match those of the school.

San Tan Montessori does not discriminate in matters of admission or enrollment on the basis of race, religion, or ethnic background.  San Tan Montessori consciously teaches children to accept, respect, and celebrate the rich cultural diversity of the global community.

To schedule a tour or discuss current & next year openings, contact the Preschool Director, Dr. Kristofer Sippel, at 480-222-0811 ext. 0 or email ksippel@santancs.com.

Acceptance
The most important factor to qualify an applicant for acceptance is the match between the family’s educational goals for the child and the Montessori philosophy.  Qualified applicants are then selected for available spaces with a focus on maintaining a balance of genders and ages in each classroom.  When a position is offered to your child, you must secure the position with a $250 non-refundable registration fee within three business days or forfeit the position.

Waiting List
If a space is not available, qualified applicants will be placed on the waiting list.  You will be notified by phone when a space becomes available.  When a position is offered to your child, you must secure the position with a $250 non-refundable registration fee within three business days or forfeit the position.

Placement
True to the Montessori philosophy, class placements are assigned with an emphasis on balancing gender and ages.  It is the policy of San Tan Montessori not to accept parent requests for specific classroom placements.  Placement will be determined by the administration team.
