Frequently asked questions
How can I enrol my child at Southbank Montessori?
Please complete and return the waiting list form. Children can be placed on the waiting list at any time and there is no charge to place a child on our waiting list.
If I am offered a place in the 2 – 3 year old class at Basinghall, do I need to apply for a place in the older class.
Children who attend Basinghall Street will automatically be offered a place in Berwick Street when they are ready and a place is available. When ready the child will visit Berwick Street with their parents and again for a morning on their own.
Can I claim Child Care Subsidy towards my fees?
The child care subsidy is based on the family’s income and the number of hours work / study undertaken by both parents. To claim the child care subsidy you will need to lodge an application through Centrelink or your MyGov account. They will calculate the subsidy and send it directly to us. You then need to pay any remaining balance.
Does my child need to be toilet trained?
Children do not need to be toilet trained to join the 2 – 3 year old class at Basinghall Street. Whilst attending Basinghall Street the Educators will work with the parents and children to assist with toilet training. Children must be toilet trained to join the over 3 year class at Berwick Street.
How do you keep me informed of my child’s progress?
The classroom directresses keep details records of the progress of each child. They meet with the parents every 6 months to discuss their child’s progress. Meeting may be held more regularly at the request of the parents or the staff. Bookings for parent meetings can be made by calling or emailing the office.
