Acceptance to our school is determined based on several factors to ensure your child’s needs and the programmes offered are a suitable fit. The Admission Process provides you with the opportunity to learn about our programmes, curriculum, and benefits beyond your child’s learning years at Peel Montessori School.
We continually strive to support the intellectual, personal, moral, and emotional development of each child. Therefore, the Process is also an opportunity for us to determine if the family places value on the same educational and behavioural philosophies that we do, and that our approaches are right for your child’s needs. Our schools seek to enroll students who display positive character traits, concentration, strong academics, enthusiasm, and a joyful disposition as well as parents who are positive school supporters.
Students are accepted to the School in the following order: Returning students, siblings and family members of returning students, students from other Montessori schools, children who wish to enroll in the full-day programme. New applicants are selected with the objective of maintaining a balance of gender, age, and needs within the classrooms.
Application deadline is March 1st. Admission decisions are made in April for the following September. We offer rolling admissions when space is available.
We are pleased to assist you with the application process and to answer any questions you may have. Admissions can be reached by telephone at 905-823-6522 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Carrington College Division (Blended Program, no prior Montessori Experience)
Carrington College students are vibrant, developing students as leaders that demonstrate creativity, independence, compassion, and confidence as speakers. Our programme although challenging is flexible allowing for athletic schedules to be met without compromising a strong academic foundation. Contact us for further information regarding information about the blended programme and our school. Carrington College is suitable for parents who seek a school that will advance their child in areas of strength and provide opportunities to strengthen developing areas. We establish high expectations for all children. We observe the Ontario curriculum, although history has demonstrated that many students advance beyond expectations in may subject areas.
We welcome the opportunity to show you our beautiful campus, classrooms and school, and to explain the Peel Montessori School difference. We invite you to visit during an Open House or to schedule a personal visit. While information about our school and the Montessori Method can be conducted via our website or readings, we must impress the importance of seeing the process in action.

All teachers are carefully selected for their skills, personality, qualifications, and professionalism. The curriculum and expectations are established by Peel Montessori School in collaboration with the teachers. Our common curriculum ensures all students receive the very best education in each of the classrooms, regardless of teacher placement. Classes are established to meet gender and age requirements. Parents will be notified at the end of August regarding class placement. Although we note recommendations, balance of the classrooms for optimal operation is observed first; therefore, we cannot guarantee that all requests can be granted.
