Please read our waitlist policy below which details how to apply to place your child(ren) on our waitlist. Our Admissions Coordinator will reach out with more information about our school, fees and waitlist position.
Lakeview School does not charge a fee to be on our wait list. It is intended to put order to need for enrollment and have a public & clear system, available to parents at any reasonable time.
Infant, Toddler and Casa levels are regulated under the Child Care and Early Years Act (CCEYA) in Ontario. Lakeview is also an accredited school through the Canadian Council of Montessori Administrators (CCMA), which holds us accountable to the highest standards in Canada of Montessori philosophy and pedagogy. Compliance with provincial legislation and our accreditation affects various aspects of the number and make-up of each classroom environment, thereby affecting the wait list. Therefore, wait list priority may be given to children of a specific age in certain cases. We are not always able to accommodate all applicants. It is our practice to keep your child’s inquiry form on file for one year with the intention to offer a spot when a position becomes available according to the procedure below:
1. To be included on the waitlist you must fill out the inquiry form below. 2. The wait list is compiled in order and preference is given by the following criteria: a) Date the form was submitted. b) Sibling(s) already attending the school. c) Full-time over part-time enrollment. d) Families who are considering Lakeview as a long-term educational program for their child(ren). As a non-profit private school, enrollment in the preschool facilitates sustainability in our elementary school. You will be asked on the online inquiry form if you are considering Lakeview for preschool only (up to Senior Kindergarten) or if your child will potentially stay until Grade 8. 3. When your child(ren)’s spot(s) become available a deposit must be received within 7 days or we will move to the next person on the list, and you will lose your spot. Access to Waitlist
Families on the waitlist may contact the Admissions Coordinator to inquire about the current composition of the waitlist for their child’s age level. To maintain the privacy and confidentiality of all families in the wait pool, access to the full wait pool will not be permitted.
