a) Application

The form ‘Apply now’ allows potential clients to apply for a place in The Montessori School of Mallorca. This data is required to provide the school with sufficient initial information to determine a) if there is currently a place available for the child, b) if the child fulfils some of the basic requirements (e.g. language skills, age), and c) if the child can be considered for a place in one of the classes of The Montessori School of Mallorca.

Through this form, you provide us with information about the child’s full name, her/his sex, data of birth, the name of the current school or nursery, languages spoken at home, reasons for applying, brothers and sisters and their age, any special needs of the child, the parents’ names, their contact email address, their telephone number and the town or city of residence. The data is collected and submitted to The Montessori School of Mallorca using Google Forms.

If the child joins the school, contact information of parents and any special needs of the child (medication, allergies) can be displayed in written form in the school’s classroom.
