Early Withdrawal Policy

Early Withdrawal Policy

Tuition payments are non-refundable because salaries and expenses related to maintaining the school for the entire year continues even when a child withdraws from the program.

Withdrawal before completion of the third year or the kindergarten year of the Primary program will result in the forfeiture of all priority status applications for siblings of the withdrawn child, even when a sibling is currently enrolled in the Parent Child and/or Toddler programs

Exceptions to this policy are limited to the following situations:

  1. Relocation out of state or another city not within a reasonable driving distance to RKMS.
  2. Children with special needs with written documentation from a specialist.
  3. A replacement is enrolled in the program affected.

Termination of a Child’s Enrollment

RKMS strives to help each child to adapt to the Montessori classroom. Every attempt is made to work not only with the child, but also with the parents, to achieve a positive adjustment. RKMS may ask the parent to consult outside professionals if the situation warrants such action. In cases of serious misbehavior, severe separation anxiety, or where the classroom does not meet the needs of the child, permanent withdrawal from the school may become necessary.
