Montessori Program Application

There are two Kindergarten to grade 5 Montessori programs located at Connaught Heights and Skwo:wech Schools. Students normally begin Montessori in Kindergarten. However, some may also join in later grades.

Application Process:

  1. Parents must also register their child for their regular catchment school.
  2. The next step is to complete the application form below.  It is the parents’ responsibility to indicate if the child has a sibling already in the program at the same school.
  3. An email will be sent to all applicants confirming their application upon submission of the form (please check your junk mail folder if the message does not appear in your inbox).
  4. Applications received within the district’s established registration timelines will be grouped by priority category as outlined in AP 220.
  5. A randomized, supervised draw process will be used to determine student placements conducted on February 27, 2023. Families will be notified by email, regardless of the outcome, by March 3, 2023. All unplaced applicants will be placed on a waitlist.
  6. All waitlists are dissolved on September 30 each year.

Online Application for the Montessori Program for September 2023

Please note: This is an application form only. This form does NOT register your child for their catchment school. 

A separate form must be submitted for each child you would like to have considered.


Student Information:

Select the school/grade in which Montessori Program catchment area you reside. If you are unsure which is your catchment please contact programsofchoice@sd40.bc.ca. All applicants will automatically be placed into the randomized draw for their catchment Montessori school.  If you wish to be placed on a waitlist as an out-of-catchment applicant to a Montessori school please include details of the reason in the comment section.

Please note: This form does not register your child – you will need to register your child for the appropriate catchment school in addition to submitting this form.
