“Thank you for running such a kind and gentle school. It is the perfect environment for curious and impressionable little minds.” - Dr. & Mr. Archer
Your enrolment commitment extends for the duration of the school year from September (or the date of acceptance, in the case of mid-year enrolment) to June for Casa and elementary classes. Foundations program enrolment for infants and young toddlers extends from their date of entry until June or the child transitions to a PreCasa class, whichever comes later. Upon acceptance of enrolment, families are responsible for the school fees for the year, unless released from this financial obligation through school policy or Director’s discretion.
Acceptance at Brooklin Mill Montessori School is conditional upon the completion of all enrolment forms including the Enrolment Agreement and commitment to the full payment of the current year’s school fees by pre-authorized bank debit. A security deposit in the amount of $500 is required upon enrolment. Please refer to our Withdrawal / Refund policy for details on the conditions of refund for this security deposit.
The school year runs from September to June, and generally follows the Durham District School Board calendar. During July and August, we operate an optional Summer School program for children in our Casa programs. The Foundations classes for children under two years of age operate on a twelve month calendar with closures only on school breaks. The school is closed for a 2 week Winter Break in late December / early January, 1 week Spring Break typically in March, and up to one week during the transition periods between Summer School and the start / end of the school year. In addition to statutory holidays, the school is also closed for up to 4 professional development days per school year.
