Admissions Process

1. Tour

The first step in the admissions process is a tour of the school. Our program is so unique, we want you to see it first hand. School tours are conducted every Tuesday at 2:00 p.m. and last for approximately an hour and a half. The tours are for adults only, no children please. No appointment necessary.

2. Observation

After your tour, you are asked to observe our program. Observation gives you the best view of how the program works and how our teachers interact with the children. After your observation you will meet with the Head of School who will answer any of your questions.

3. Application

After your observation, you may turn in your application. There is a non-refundable $60.00 application fee. No child will be considered for admission until we have a completed application on file with the application fee.

4. Meeting

After your observation, the Admissions Director will call you to schedule your Parent Interview and Child Visit. This will last approximately one hour and is a wonderful opportunity to get to know The Montessori School operations and procedures, and understand what to expect of the Montessori experience.

5. Enrollment

Congratulations! You have completed the admissions process and submitted your application. All fees, deposits and completed forms, including an up-to-date medical record, must be in the office before a child can begin his/her first day of school.

We enroll students throughout the year as space is available from our waiting list. Call for specific information.

* Toddler admission requires one additional step, Toddler Phase In. This is a feature of our program designed to help your child make a positive transition from you to his/her new teacher. Each child must be accompanied by an adult for a minimum of two days.

* The Montessori School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, disability, national and ethnic origin in administration of educational policies, admissions policies, financial assistance policies, employment practices, and other school administered programs.
