Special Note for Montessori Kindergarten registration. Montessori is a Choice Program.
- ALL children will register for kindergarten at their English catchment school – even if you do not intend to attend there. This includes students who want to go to French Immersion, Montessori or other Choice Programs – even siblings of children already in the program.
- You are encouraged to register between November 1 and January 31. If your English catchment school does not have space for all the children in the catchment, there will be a lottery in February.
- Application for all programs of choice – including French Immersion, Montessori, Mandarin Bilingual, Aboriginal Focus School, and Fine Arts – will begin online on mid-January 2020 until early February 2020. (Please check the VSB website for updates. VSB Kindergarten registration information) You will need a Personal Education Number (PEN) to apply and this will only be sent to you if you register at your English catchment school.
(Kindergarten applicants for September 2020 must have been born in 2015.)
Applications for the Montessori Program at Maple Grove are only available at the school for grades 1 to 7. Parents must come to the school to obtain one. No faxed in or mailed in applications will be accepted. Filling the form in at the school will ensure that your child’s name will be placed on the waitlist for grades 1 through 7.
An application for the Montessori program is not a registration in the system. All applicants must be registered at their catchment school.
Please go to our Parents tab – click on Montessori for more information about the program.
