1. What is our Admission Process?
Our Admissions process serves several important purposes. It allows you, as the Parent, to become better acquainted with our mission, values, and practices. Likewise, it provides us with the opportunity to learn about your expectations and goals for your child’s education. It also gives families who are new to Montessori an excellent introduction to the philosophy and methods of a Montessori Education.
At Haven Admission is throughout the year. We request parents to call us for an appointment to visit the environment and interact with the teachers to get an insight about the system.
Upon deciding for admission, we ask parents to visit the school along with the child .This enables the child to be more familiar with the environment and also helps the school to assess the child in terms of their readiness, language and concentrating skills.
2. Does Haven have a half-day or part-time option?
Haven school hours starts from 9.00 am to 3.00 pm. Young children work for three hours, however those children who rely on transportation will stay back and leave school along older children.
3. What is the age of entry for admission?
We recommend that your child enter the Montessori environment at 24 months in the Infant group. It is best to start children at such a young age for them to have the full benefits of functional independence and choice making.
4. Does school provide snack/food for my child?
No. Children are requested to bring in their own snack and Lunch.
5. Does school provide transportation?
School Provides safe and secure transportation to children residing between 6 km from the school campus.
6. How is the Curriculum Delivered?
At Haven you see children of different ages working at their own pace with materials they have chosen. The teachers blend into the buzz of quiet activity as they take time to assess the children through regular observation. Teachers also make time to present new lessons to children who demonstrate readiness and spend one-on-one time supporting children who need a hand. The teacher’s aim is to encourage hands-on, self-directed learning and independence in children.
