Frequently Asked Questions

How far in advance do I need to place my child’s name on the waiting list?

Requirements vary by age. We recommend that you refer to the “Curriculum” section for more details. In general however, we recommend that you contact the school 18 to 24 months prior to your child’s desired start date.

What do I need to do to be on the waiting list?

Submit an online pre-admission form and/or call the school to obtain one and schedule an appointment for a tour. The admission order is on a first-come-first-serve-basis.

Can I register before the tour to be on the waiting list?

No. You may submit the online pre-admission form however; you will only be confirmed into the waiting list once the tour has been completed. We believe that it is important to first see the school and experience the environment to ensure that you’re selecting the right school and program for your child and your family.

Is the school open year-round?

Yes. We are open year-round for all ages.

When do you enroll children?

We place students throughout the year.

When is the best age to start my child at your school?

Between 18 months to 3 years of age. If your child starts in the Toddler program (18 months – 3 years of age), your child will have a smooth transition into the Primary class. You can also enroll your child at the age of 3 years to start in the Primary class and complete a three year Primary program (which includes the Kindergarten year). Our full Elementary Program typically enrolls children who have complted the Primary Program however, we do consider children who have come from other Pre-K and Kindergarten programs on an individual basis.

If my child stays through Kindergarten can he/she be accepted in first grade the following year?

Yes. There is no problem in enrolling your child in our Elementary Program or at any other school. In fact, our Pre-K and Kindergarten programs, when completed in full, prepare children at levels far advance from those offered at public schools.

What is the highest grade-level that my child can complete at your school?

We offer a top-level Elementary Program (1st grade – 6th grade). For a seamless transition from Primary to the Elementary program, we recommend that children have experienced the Primary class or another Elementary Montessori program before coming to the Elementary program. As mentioned above however, we consider children of all academic backgrounds on an individual basis.

Is it hard for my child to transition to another school after being in Montessori?

Absolutely not. As with every change, a small transition period may take place, although the adaptation time is very fast, given the academic, social and developmental readiness provided by our school. However, typically children perform better if they continue through the Elementary Montessori class, or at least complete the Pre-K and Kindergarten years at our school, simply because they are learning through and using the same methodology and concepts as they have in the Primary class. You should also consider that stability of environment is crucial for development and learning at these age levels.
