We encourage interested families to book a tour of our beautiful facility on the Selkirk Waterfront Development. Please contact our Administrative Assistant, Karma Wolski, at 250-384-3414 or firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements.
Children are more than welcome to accompany their parents on the tour. This is a good opportunity to see the school in operation, to ask any questions you might have about Selkirk Montessori and the Montessori philosophy. Another wonderful opportunity to see the school is during our annual Open House, held in late January. Families are able to tour the school, visit classrooms and meet the teachers and staff.
We welcome waitlist applications throughout the year at Selkirk Montessori School. If you wish to put your child on our waitlist, please complete the form (see Expression of Interest below) and return it to us with the $100 non-refundable fee. In January each year, we ask our current families to let us know if they are returning for the next September. We also ask them to register any young siblings at that time. At the end of the month, we are able to put together preliminary class lists and determine what space is available for waitlisted children. In late February or early March, the Executive Director/Head of School will contact waitlisted families (starting with our kindergarten and elementary/middle school students) to determine if they are interested in registering their child/ren for September. Once the child is registered, a package of information is emailed out to the family and payments are due to reserve the space.
Our receptionist will book an appointment for new families to meet with the Executive Director or Head of School to go over the Selkirk Montessori Family Handbook. In late August, teachers will contact new parents to set up meetings with them before the start of school.

Selkirk Montessori Family Handbook
We review the handbook with parents at the time of our first official meeting. It provides information about processes, policies and procedures at Selkirk Montessori School. From time to time, the handbook will be updated to reflect changes or updates.
Family Statement of Commitment
All families are required to complete a Family Statement of Commitment. Partners (home, school, child) in Montessori Education must work together to provide an environment where learning and responsibility are seen as two parts of the equation for success, leading the young people to be the best they can be.
