Admissions

admissions

The Montessori Learning Center uses a whole-person concept when considering students for attendance to the school.  Our process is designed to ensure the best selection and placement for the student, the family and the school.  We have a non-discriminatory admissions policy for children who are ages three (3) through six (6) for our prekindergarten and kindergarten programs. We also offer Lower Elementary (1st through 3rd Grade). Currently the school is not licensed for special needs students.  

The admissions process includes a personal tour of the school as well as an interview with the Director or representative staff member to answer all questions regarding the school and the Montessori Method. Completed applications for new students should be returned to the school as soon as possible to ensure acceptance or placement on the waiting list. The final decision of admittance will be based on the interview and applications information and at the discretion of the Director. The Kindergarten and Lower Elementary will also be required to have an in classroom visit as well as take a placement test.

Siblings of former students who have completed the Montessori program will have priority for available openings at the beginning of each school year; for all other applicants, the date of registration will take precedence.
