We invite all families to book a pre-enrolment tour, allowing you and your child to learn more about our facilities, program and Educators. Tours are offered on the first Tuesday and third Thursday of each month - bookings are essential. Alternatively, tours may be offered by appointment should places currently be available.
Should you wish to book a tour, please email or telephone. If you wish to enquire about joining our waitlist, please fill out the form below.
We offer a gentle transition process for your child beginning at Hope Island Montessori with shorter visits to the classroom prior to commencing full days. We find this allows the child to settle in very comfortably as well as helping parents and/or caregivers feel secure. Morning visits during the transition period are offered at a reduced rate.
A nutritious whole-based morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea, natural sunscreen repellent, nappies and wipes are included in daily fees as well as any co-curricular activities such as yoga, foreign language, dance and sport.
2 days - $242 per week
3 days - $363 per week
4 days - $484 per week
5 days - $606 per week
Please note we have a 2 day minimum enrolment policy as we find this greatly benefits children in regard to settling, learning and social interaction. Four weeks notice is required for End of Enrolment. Fees are subject to change.
All families are required to complete a Debit Success form upon enrolment, authorising all fees to be paid fortnightly via the Debit Success system. This is a condition of enrolment at Hope Island Montessori.
Full information regarding fees will be provided on request.
CHILD CARE SUBSIDY
Child Care Subsidy (CCS) is provided by the Commonwealth Government to approved childcare and educational facilities. This subsidy is used to reduce the amount that families are required to pay.
Hope Island Montessori is approved to receive these subsidies and families can apply through Centrelink.
MANAGEMENT OF WAIT LISTS
If a waiting list applies, the highest priority is given to children as per the Priority of Access Guidelines set out by the Department of Education. Please see the Waiting List Policy for further information.
