Admission Policy

Admission

is

open

to

any

child

and

does

not

depend

on

race,

gender,

religion

or

culture.

Children

with

special

needs

can

be

admitted

provided

they

are

able

to

cope

with

the

daily

routine.

The

Oponganda

Pre-Primary

&

DayCare

does

not

support

any

one

denomination

or

religion.

In

order

to

thrive

on

the

benefits

of

the

Montessori

pre-primary

education

the

best

entry

age

is

between

to

3½ years.

It

is

recommended

that

children

be

fully

toilet

trained

before

enrolling.

Enrolment

for

children

over

age

4

is

determined

by

spaces

available,

balance

of

ages

and

genders

as

well

as

an

interview

with

the

parents and a visit by the child to the classroom.

In

addition

to

our

Pre-Primary

classroom

we

offer

a

baby

&

toddler

environment.

The

entry

age

for

them

is

3

or

18

months

repectively.

The

toddler's

toilet

training

is

part

of

the

programme

and

is

done

in

cooperation

with

the

parents.

The

transition

from

the

toddlers

to

the

pre-school

environment

is

a

gradual process according to the child's readiness and does not happen on a fixed date.

The Oponganda Pre-Primary & DayCare offers open enrolment year-round, based on availability.
