Greenhouse Montessori School welcomes all children regardless of race, creed, color, or national origin who aje 2 1/2 years old through kindergarten age. Admission is based on space-availability and agreement by staff and parents that the child is ready and will benefit from the classroom experience. One of our criteria for readiness is that the child is able to use the toilet independently. Admission shall not normally be granted on a short-term temporary basis.
Parents wishing to enroll their child should complete the following:
Immunization Requirements: The State of California requires all children entering preschool to be current with their immunizations. The requirements for children by 18 months of age are as follows: 3 Polio, 4 DTP/DTap/DT, 3 Hepatitis B, 1 Varicella, 1 MMR (must be given on or after child's first birthday), and 1 Hib. Written proof of immunizations must be provided to the school by the child's first day in class. In addition, a medical report stating the child's good health must be signed by a physician. On this report the physician must also indicate the results of a T.B. test given within a year of enrollment in our school.
Greenhouse Montessori School is open twelve months a year. We offer a school year program from September through June and a summer program during July and August.
Our school year begins the first week in September and continues through June. The school is closed for national holidays, for a two-week winter break and for one week in spring (as per the V.U.S.D. calendar). We assume that all children are enrolled through the full ten-month school year, and tuition is based upon this commitment. Partial-year enrollments are prorated on the percentage of the school year attended. A summer program is provided in July and August and is open to established and to new students. Separate registration takes place in the spring.
