The following steps are required for
Waiting List: Please return the completed Waiting List Form if you want your child placed on our waiting list. Because so many people call for information, it becomes necessary to create this second step to separate serious applicants from those in the information-gathering phase. When the Wait List Form is received, it is placed in our file, and when there is an opening, you will be contacted. Meanwhile you should make arrangements to observe the classroom that you wish your child to attend. Press here to fill out our online Waiting List Form.
Observation: The Montessori Method is a special kind of education, and we want to be certain that you understand what we are offering. Observations are scheduled beginning mid-October of each school year, on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. You should plan to stay in the classroom for about an hour starting at 9:30. We may have other times available for observations, so please call.
Waiting: Most of our placements take place in September, but we do sometimes have openings mid-year. Given the nature of the Montessori approach, a child can fit into the curriculum any time during the year. Do not hesitate to call about mid-year placement.
Application/Fee: If, when we call you with an opening, you are interested in enrolling your child, you then make formal application, pay the registration fee, and schedule a visit for your child.
Visit: Your child's visit is for several reasons. We want your child to be familiar with the Classroom before his/her first day and we want to meet your child before that first day. On rare occasions, the child's visit will make it clear, either to us or to you that your child should not join the classroom.
Acceptance: There are sometimes mid-year openings. If your child is applying for one of those then enrollment will be immediate. Otherwise, we have visitation in the spring for the fall openings. An Enrollment and Tuition Agreement will need to be returned upon notification of acceptance.
