To be eligible for admission to the preschool program, a child must be at least three years old by December 31 of the admitting year. Toddlers must be 18 months to participate in the toddler programs.
The first step is to schedule an appointment to observe a class in session. The visit helps acquaint prospective parents with the Montessori Method and gives them the chance to explore the classroom and meet the staff.
Parents of prospective students then complete an application form and return it to the school along with the application fee to be considered for admission.
Once the application is received, an appointment is made to meet the child and to introduce him or her to the teachers and the classroom.
Admission and applications are considered on a rolling basis for the preschool and toddler classrooms.
Parents are required to sign an annual enrollment contract and to include a non-refundable deposit (deducted from tuition) to secure the child’s place for the following school year.
