Admission Process


  1. Visit us — call us to set up a school tour. Seeing is believing – which is why we invite you to tour our school before you complete an application.

  2. Taster Day.  On your school visit, you and your child will be invited to make an appointment for a taster day.  This will give you and your child the opportunity to you spend the morning with us, meet the teachers and children.  

  3. Complete an application. At your tour, or taster day, we will give you an admission form to complete.  We can also send you an admission form beforehand, should you want to have this form ahead of time.

  4. Register your child.  If we jointly decide that Little Gems is a good fit for your child,  you can complete the registration by paying a non-refundable registration fee of €50 in addition to a non-refundable deposit of €200. The deposit will be applied to the annual fee upon commencing nursery.  The admission form needs to be completed, which indicates your child’s start date and schedule of fees. If we do not have space available for your chosen start date, or if you are interested in enrolling your child in the future (e.g., once he becomes old enough, or once you move, or for the next school year), you can place your child on our waiting list. We will note your requested start date and contact you when a suitable opening becomes available.

  5. Place secured. After registering your child, we will provide you with our parent handbook, which contains a number of policies (e.g. mission statement, general information, illness policy, staff, and more).  We also require certain forms from you that we collect before we admit your child into Little Gems. Please return these forms, along with the payments outlined in your copy of the schedule of fees, prior to your child’s start date.

  6. Welcome to Little Gems Montessori Nursery!  We look forward to seeing you and your child soon!
