BBMH participated in the BC Government Child Care Reduction Initiative where families receive reimbursement through the school each month based on attendance. This program is applicable to children age 3, 4 and 5 years old attending the preschool program. 

We encourage parents to consider Montessori education at as early an age as possible, as this is the time that Dr. Montessori identified the child as having an “Absorbent Mind”. During this very sensitive period between the ages of 1 to 6, children notice everything in their surroundings, the motions of their teachers, the finest details of work, and they develop their sense of will, concentration, sense of order, logical thinking and problem solving processes.

Criteria for Prioritizing Admission

  1. Re-enrollment of current students

  2. Siblings of students currently enrolled with Montessori experience

  3. Siblings of students currently enrolled without Montessori experience

  4. Siblings of previously enrolled students with Montessori experience

  5. Siblings of previously enrolled students without Montessori experience

  6. Students with previous Montessori experience

  7. Children without previous Montessori experience

Our enrollment process includes several steps to ensure that families have all the information they need to consider Montessori education for their family.

Registration and Re-Enrollment

 

Applications for re-enrollment are distributed to our current parents in February, and returned to the school. Parents who have attended the AGM, June Orientation and Parent Education Meetings during the year will receive priority re-enrollment for their children for the next school year.

Applications for enrollment of new students to the program are available throughout the school year. Parents new to the program are required to observe the classroom of interest while in session and then to meet with the school administrator. Depending on the time of year, and available vacancies within the program, a new student may be immediately accommodated, or required to wait until an appropriate break within the school calendar, i.e. September or January.

Orientation Process

The first six weeks of enrollment are considered to be an orientation period for all new and transferring students. You will be advised during and at the conclusion of this interval as to the level of comfort your child is experiencing in the classroom. Please keep in mind that many factors come into play when a child enters a highly individualized program. Should the BBMS Staff in consultation with parents feel that BBMS does not satisfy the needs of your child, withdrawal procedures would begin within this time frame.

Fees

The fees to attend BBMS are based on the program, volunteer participation, number of children per family and payment options. The fees policy is explained below. 

Fees Per Family

  • 1.Each family pays a $150 registration fee when joining the school for the first time. Siblings of current students are not required to pay the registration fee.

  • 2. Each family pays an annual membership to the Montessori in Delta Society, the non-profit society that oversees the school. The fee is $50 and is due upon enrollment. 

  • 3. We ask that each family with Kindergarten to Year 7 students make an annual tax-deductible donation of $250 (one per family) to the Montessori in Delta Society. A post-dated cheque is due when returning your registration package. 

  • 4. We rely on parent volunteers to help maintain and operate the school and keep fees to a minimum. Accordingly, we ask all Kindergarten to Year 7 parents to submit two post-dated default cheques in case they are unable to meet their volunteer commitments. Volunteer hours and default cheques are not compounded when multiple children from the same family are attending our school. Parents are allowed to opt out of the parent participation program, paying the cost for volunteer hours.
