My child is transferring from another school and I am worried if he/she is up to speed with where their class is academically. What should I do?
Part of the enrollment process will be a brief interview with your child to make sure the Montessori environment will be a good fit. IF you have any additional concerns we can arrange for a free educational assessment of your child and identify any areas that he or she may need special support in.
I’ve heard a lot about bullying in the news. What is the school’s policy on bullying?
Although bullying behavior is not a significant problem at VVM, we have created a Pledge to Prevent Bullying for the Teacher’s use. While it may be impractical for the Pre-School and Kindergarten class to sign this document, we feel that the philosophy contained herein is important enough to stress with all students. An inclusive VVM Anti-Bullying Pledge will be signed by each staff person and posted in the VVM office.
What food and supplies will my child need?
Verde Valley Montessori requires that you provide your child with a lunch. Snacks are optional. We have no cafeteria that serves food however the school provdes pizza on Fridays for students who wish to buy two slices of pizza for $1.25.
Once I’ve enrolled my son or daughter I need to set up transportation. What are the typical drop-offs and pick-up times?
The school drop-off time for all students from Pre through 6th is 8:20 AM to 8:40 AM. You drive your child to the school and park your car in a line of other parent cars. A staff member will come to your vehicle, open the door, and retrieve your child. Morning sessions for preschool and kindergarten students from 8:30 to 11:30 A.M. Full-day sessions for preschool and kindergarten students from 8:30 to 2:45 P.M. Full-day sessions for elementary students from 8:30 to 3:15 P.M. The pick-up process is the same as the drop-off process leaving you a 20 minute window to arrive/depart.
