As each school reflects their own values and school culture, it is important that you have a visit to our school to ensure the school's environment is a good fit for your child. We ask all new parents to visit our school and tour our facilities before they make a commitment to our programs.
Applications will be accepted throughout the year. Once you have viewed the school and have decided to apply for a place, please complete an application form. We accept children from many different cultures and countries. Most children speak either English or their mother tongues. There is no prerequisite for their language. It is not a requirement for the children to speak English upon admission.
The formal application process includes a student visit with the principal to screen your child. This allows the school a chance to evaluate your child's abilities and identify areas for development for placement within the school. In addition this visit gives the child and parent an opportunity to be in the school environment. There is time during the student visit to answer individual questions about the Montessori curriculum and school procedures at The Children’s House - Montessori Nursery School.

We have high expectations in all areas of school life and this includes uniform. We believe children should look neat and tidy. Our uniform consists of simple functional clothing suitable for the range of activities which may ba encountered during the school day. We would ask all children wear their uniform to school. as it helps them to feel part of The Children's House Montessori School. We feel that the school uniform encourages a sense of belonging and pride in our school.
The school uniform available at House of Uniform, Al'Ali Mall.
