Frequently Asked Questions

When can I apply for a space at Abacus?


We recommend applying well in advance of the school year. There are occasionally spots available on a rolling basis. You can inquire at info@abacusmontessori.ca.




Should I apply for Casa or Elementary programming?


Children aged 2.5 to 6 are eligible for our Casa program and children aged 6 to 12 may be admitted to the Elementary program.




If I apply to Pre-Casa, will my child be automatically able to transition to Casa programming?


Yes! Our programs are designed to advance our students starting from their moment of entry into montessori education.




What is the withdrawl/refund policy?


There are no "make-up" days at Abacus for any child who is absent from school. Children travelling for a long period of time risk losing their spot if they have not notified the school in writing. There are no refunds for any child withdrawing after April 30th. If a parent wants to withdraw a child, a written notice must be issued at least thirty days in advance. In such cases, except for the non-refundable fee of $100.00, all other cheques will be returned. Any fee discount for fees at this point become null and void
