Toddlers are just trying to understand the world around them and their place in it. Understanding their needs and corresponding behaviours will help us support them to make discoveries and construct themselves.
Thanks for your interest in joining the TTC community. We understand enrolling in an alternative school is a big step for you and your child. Just know that we are with you every step of the way.
We have a 5-step enrollment process that's designed to give you a good understanding of the Montessori method and for us to understand your family and your child's developmental needs.
Parents are required to watch a pre-recorded, preliminary orientation video about the Montessori method. This is especially important if you are new to the system. We'd recommend you watch it even if you aren't new to it to understand how we look at it and how your child will flourish in this system.
Parents can book for a tour of the space via the ‘Book a Tour’ button. The guides of the corresponding environments (based on the child's age) will take parents to classes during the Montessori morning work cycle for observation for approximately 1 hr.
The child is invited to work with the materials in the environment. The guides may give presentations of certain works to encourage the child to try it out for themselves.
During the meeting with your family we will specifically discuss your child’s development and suitability for a place at TTC. Both parents are required to be present.
Once it is determined that your family and the TTC community are a good fit for each other with regards to your child's development, you will proceed with application filling and fees payment.
