|Entry evaluation for students||
|Brief description of entry evaluation required||
An assessment will be required, depending on the age of the child (usually 4½ – 12yr olds). The assessment is a gentle, stress-free visit which may involve the child joining the class for a morning, or a day or two. This is an opportunity for the child to experience first hand what the class is like and is also an opportunity for the teacher to meet the child, to assess whether or not s/he is suited to the Montessori environment.
|Dedicated staff/programs for students with special learning needs||
Generally, Auburn is not equipped to care for children with special needs. Therefore, any such care is entirely at the discretion of the School and conditional upon the consent of the Principal. In all cases, the child must be able to participate and substantially benefit from the programme without risk to him/herself or to the other children.
