Enrollment

Our school year runs from early September through late June. We offer an optional 5 week Summer Program (placement is maintained for the Fall if you opt out of the summer session.) Applications are accepted through out the school year though we prefer to start in the Fall.  If openings become available after the school year has started, admission will be on a case-by-case basis. Applications must include completed doctor’s assessment, immunization records and emergency contact forms as well as the non-refundable application fee of $200. Subsequent years for the child materials fee is $150. In addition to reserving a space, the annual application fee covers school supplies and enrichment activities for the year. The program is dedicated to education according to the Montessori philosophy.  Our curriculum is designed for the child’s primary level of schooling, from ages 2 1/2 through age six (this includes the kindergarten year.)
 
Tuition is based on a school year commitment andIMG_9842
is broken down into ten installments due at the beginning
of each month. A 5% discount is given if paid for the year
and 2% if paid biannually.  We do extend a small discount for siblings.
 
We offer three 5-day Programs as follows: 
 

Half School Day        8:30am – 1:00pm

Full School Day         8:15am – 3:15pm

All-Day Montessori   8:00am – 4:30pm 
     
Please call or email us to inquire about tuition and to confirm available space.
 
Though we do understand that many families and parents are interested in two and three-day programs, we have found that the five-day program creates the consistency that is so important to children at this age.  It is also essential to the development of a strong Montessori program since the primary goal of Montessori involves creating a culture of consistency, order, and empowerment.   Most Montessori schools will seek the attendance of children five days a week for the integrity of the program.
 
Students are notified by June 1 of placement. Enrollment priority is given to siblings of existing children.  A wait list is available for mid-year openings.
