How to Set up Childcare
Online Forms are provided to each family before the beginning of each school year through their School Forms Online (SFO) account. Payments are auto debited on the 15th of the month (covering that month). Direct all questions and requests to the Registrar, Dee at dferro@valleymontessorischool.com.

How to Change Your Childcare Schedule
Contact the Registrar at dferro@valleymontessorischool.com before the first of the month.

Late Pickups and Emergency Situations
When you are late or in the event of an emergency, your child will be cared for in our childcare room. When possible, please call Reception so they can notify the appropriate teachers. Late pick up after scheduled time is billed at $1 per minute. After 6pm, it is billed at $2 per minute.

Although drop-in childcare is not offered, should a situation arise causing you to need unplanned childcare, please contact Reception or the Registrar. Childcare will be billed at $15 an hour.
