Uniform Policy

At MdM we wear uniforms for four important reasons: 

  • Safety: uniforms allow us to quickly identify our students. 
  • Community:  uniforms unite us as a school family. 
  • Respect for work: uniforms help students to be conscious and focus better on their work to learn, explore and grow.  
  • Family economy: uniforms help families save money in clothing and time in the mornings when getting ready for school.

All students must come to school in the MdM uniform every school day and on field trips.

If a student arrives out of uniform, parents/guardians will be notified in person, by phone or by note and asked to send their student wearing a complete uniform by the next school day. The uniform is outlined below. 

Uniforms can be purchased at *Monograms to Go Alameda-Chambers Connection, 364 S Chambers Rd, Aurora, CO 80017 Phone: (303) 750-6112

Change of Clothes

All families with students in ECE and kindergarten must send one change of clothing with your student on the first day of school. The change includes underwear, pants, plain polo shirt and socks, and will remain in the classroom in the case of an accident. If a change of clothing is not provided, parents will be called in the case of an accident to come to school with a clean change of clothing for your student.

Exceptional Student Services

Special education

The Exceptional Student Service Department works to ensure that all eligible students with disabilities are provided a free appropriate public education in the least restrictive environment. We strive to ensure that Montessori del Mundo is in compliance with the Federal Law – Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). We believe all students are general education students first and that Special Education is a service – not a place.

 Section 504

Our school provides 504 evaluations and plans in order to provide each student with disabilities or a handicap equal access to the school environment. Montessori del Mundo follows federal guidelines under Section 504 in order to meet student needs and be in compliance with the law.

Gifted and talented

“Gifted and talented children are those persons between the ages of five and twenty-one whose abilities, talents and potential for accomplishment are so exceptional or developmentally advanced that they require special provisions to meet their educational needs.” – Colorado Department of Education
