We strive to develop each student’s full potential: physically, socially, emotionally and intellectually.
To enroll your child in Swannanoa Valley Montessori School for the 2019-2020 school year, please follow the steps below:
Step 1: Parent Tour – This hour long tour begins with a short video about Montessori, continues with observation time in the classroom and finishes with Q & A time.
Visit our online calendar to see our “Get to Know Us” parent tour schedule. **SUMMER TOURS available each week, June 17-August 9**
Please call (828) 669-8571 to reserve a space on the tour.
Step 2: Complete the online Application
Step 3: Submit application fee You can pay this fee online or in the office with a check or cash. This $75 fee is non-refundable
Step 4: Schedule a Child Visit – We will call you to schedule the child visit, where your child will spend time in the classroom independent of his/her parents. This visit will give us an opportunity to get to know your child and determine readiness for our program.
Step 5: Acceptance decision – We will send you an email after the Child Visit to let you know our acceptance decision for the 2019-2020 school year. Should your child be accepted, you will receive a link to complete student enrollment. (We may require student records from previous schools along with a teacher recommendation before a decision can be reached.)
Step 6: Enrollment fees – We require a new student enrollment fee of $200 and a placement deposit of $200 to secure your child’s placement. Both fees are non-refundable. You can pay these online or bring a check/cash to the office.
If you have questions or need assistance with any part of the enrollment process, please contact our office at 669-8571 or email Diane, firstname.lastname@example.org.
