Enquiring Minds Montessori reserves the right to exclude any child from attendance, temporarily or permanently, who is deemed by the Director to be interfering with the health, safety, educational development of him/herself or any other child in the school. A child may be discharged from enrollment after the following measures have been implemented:
- Initially, parents/guardians will be advised via conversation or in written form of the circumstance which is deemed by the Principal to be interfering with the health, safety, educational development of him/herself or any other child in the school. In this meeting or conversation, parents/guardians are made aware of the child’s readiness for and/or suitability to Enquiring Minds Montessori programs, and/or the perceived risk to others. Parents are made aware of any modifications or improvements required in order to continue the child’s enrollment at Enquiring Minds Montessori. A deadline will be established to provide child with the opportunity to adapt, improve or make modifications acceptable to the Director.
- A final meeting will take place between Director and parent(s) to determine;
a) continuation in the program
c) next steps
All timelines are established dependent upon severity of the circumstance leading up to consideration of discharge and are determined according to the impact that the child’s behavior has on the health, safety, educational development of him/herself or any other child in the school. In the event that your child is asked to withdraw, the Initial deposit and Last Month fee will be retained by Enquiring Minds Montessori. The final decision of discharge is made by the Director.
