Enrollment information

Lisbon Montessori School will host children of all nationalities who are between 2½ and 12 years of age. Most common ages at point of enrollment are between 2 ½ – 3 years in the CASA program and 6-9 years in the ELEMENTARY.

Start of attendance in the CASA program is possible at the start of each of the two terms, in September and in January (any week of the month).

Students will be considered to enter the ELEMENTARY mid-term based on merit and availability.

Our school year is 10 months, from September to June, which is 179 – 182 school days. We also offer daycare in July day-camp at an extra fee.

We offer half-day program to children under the age of 4 or until the teacher feels that they are ready for the more advanced full day program. In the full day program the children engage in more extensive academic and developmental activities and the classroom setting requires a higher level of independence.

When siblings (including twins) are being enrolled to the casa level LMS policy is to enrol each sibling to a different classroom. When more than two siblings are being enrolled the two that attend the same casa classroom must be of different ages.

Parents are encouraged to visit many schools before choosing the right school for their child.

For parents to learn more about Lisbon Montessori School and the AMI program we offer please sign up for a tour or an open-house day on our page ‘Visit LMS’. The tour takes about one hour, and for the first visit we invite both parents to come alone, without their child. An exception to this is when prior to the visit the parents have attended a (virtual) tour and have already made the decision to enroll by providing pre-enrollment paperwork in which case they may bring the child for an interview with the teacher.

Note: Due to restrictions related to the pandemic all prospective parent visits and some afternoon tours in the academic year 2021 – 2022 will be held on zoom. The school will email information during the week preceding the tour to the parents who sign up for the visit on our page ‘Visit LMS’.

Before you apply we recommend reviewing our policies and procedures which are posted on our home page.
