Workshops--for new parents
All of these meetings are held at the school and
children are NOT to attend.
The Montessori workshops will give an overview of the
Montessori method and demonstrations of some of the
materials and how they work. All new parents who
would like to learn a little more about Montessori are
encouraged to attend.
The Kindergarten Weeks are a special time that will
include in-depth classroom time, as well as nature
walks, crafts, and possible field trips. Students
should bring their lunch. After these weeks, the
Kindergarten students will return at the regular class
The all school picnic will give an opportunity for the
students and the parents to get to know one
another. This will be a very informal gathering
and we ask that you bring your own picnic dinner and a
blanket and/or lawn chairs.
We will go over details at the Parent Meeting, but feel
free to e-mail
me if you have any other questions prior to the
meeting. I will be vacationing at various times
throughout the summer, but I will eventually get back to
always, our goal is to provide a quality
environment for your child at the best price.
Tuition can be paid in full, by semester, or by
the month. We continue to offer prompt
payment discounts to those who pay on or before
the first of the month. Also, we offer a further
discount for those who pay once for the entire
year or twice a year by semester-(August 1st and
January 1st). Monthly tuition will be divided into
10 equal payments. The first payment is due by
August 1st. Each succeeding month will be
paid in accordance with our tuition policy: Aug.
1st, Sept. 1st, Oct. 1st, Nov. 1st, Dec. 1st, Jan.
1st, Feb. 1st, March 1st, April 1st and May 1st.
With the first payment due on or before August
1st, this gives us enough time to open spots for
families on the waiting list. Payments may
be dropped off at the school or mailed.
New families who have already paid the $100.00 New
Student Deposit should deduct that amount from the
first payment. This deposit is non
refundable if you make a change after August
1st. There is a link to our tuition rates on
the home page.
As a reminder, we need a current Immunization
Certificate on file for every student at
the beginning of the school year. According
to law your child will NOT be allowed to enter
school without a current form on file.
Remember to ask your pediatrician for a form at
your child’s annual physical. Kindergarten
children will need a complete physical and a copy
of their birth certificate. An eye exam is
required for students attending public
schools. While it is now yet required for
private Kindergartens, the Health Department has
requested that you complete the eye exam for the
Kindergarten year. This exam must be
performed by an opthamologist. We must have
Immunization Certificate (EPID-230).
If your doctor does not have these forms, they
should get in touch with the Northern Kentucky
District Health Department at (859) 431-1704.
If a change has occurred over the summer (such as
address, e-mail address, phone or name) please let
me know prior to August 1st. I will be
printing the Trent Directory and would like to
have all information correct.
