  5. Who can my child to released to (picked up by)?
    • Your child’s security is our priority.  A child can be dropped of by someone not on our records, but a child can only be released to a person on record or our office have received written consent from the child’s legal guardian(s).  For example, if you normally pick up your child, but are not available one day and want a neighbor to pickup your child, then follow these steps:
      • communicate with your neighbor, send us a photo of their driver’s license, or give them a code.
      • email us this information.
      • when your neighbor pickup your child, we will ask for ID to match the information you provided and also the code you provided.  (please give a new code each time).
      • your child is released to your neighbor
  6. Does my child need to be potty trained to enroll.
    • We believe that by the time a child have developed the skills and maturity to participant in a learning environment such as a Montessori classroom, they are ready to learn to use the toilet.  We do not require IC candidates to be already using the toilet.  However we do require that they start to be trained at home using our methods. We will work with families to make this a smooth process.  Our classrooms are well equipped with child size toilets and sinks to encourage toilet usage.
    • Primary candidates need to already know how to use the toilet
