Bishops Waltham Montessori School Ltd accepts children from 2 years  for enrollment and younger children for the registration list. We welcome children with special educational needs.

Parents and children are invited to come to the School for a meeting with a teacher.

The child’s place is confirmed upon receipt and acknowledgement of the Registration Form and a registration fee of fifty pounds.

          Fees are payable termly or monthly in advance.

A full term’s notice is required to terminate a place, once the child has started.

Children are accepted throughout the year as they become of age.

Children will be assessed individually to determine their settling-in needs.

We recommend a minimum of two sessions per week.

The school tries to remain as flexible as possible and therefore is able to offer 4 different types of funding. The School is registered with Hampshire County Council and can participate in the Nursery Education funding for every child commencing from the term after their third birthday. This funding covers 15 hours a week for 38 weeks a year – 570 hours. 30 hour funding is available for children over 3 , a charge of £2.50 per hour is made after the free 15 hours. 15 hours of 2 year funding is available for children who qualify and of course 30 hours SEND funding. Most terms are 12-14 weeks long.
