Montessori classrooms are unique and built to allow movement and change, and the teachers guide more than directly instruct. To ensure your choice of the right environment for your child to thrive in, we recommend the following:
1. Classroom observation: Parents of students interested in enrolling their children can make an appointment to visit/observe a classroom for 15 minutes and become informed about our school's philosophy, schedules, tuition, etc.
2. A second appointment will be made, if necessary, for the student to visit the school with parent(s) for a child-centered tour of the school where he will meet with his or her teacher. If parents are interested in continuing the admissions process, they will complete a student information form and schedule a day for the child to visit the classroom for 1 to 3 hours, depending on their age.
3. The student will spend a few hours without the parents in their classroom, where he/she will receive a lesson from the teacher and meet his/her peers. The 3- to 6-year-old child can spend a morning in the Primary classroom (9:00 to 10:30), and the Toddler student, 1 hour (9-10).
4. If the parents and teachers agree that the student will benefit from the MCH program, registration forms will need to be completed and a start date established. The school will maintain a wait list if a spot is not available.
*New COVID-19 Admission Procedures:
We are currently open and are able to give tours during school hours, usually at 10:30 am, when all the children can be outside in the playground. You and your child will have an opportunity to spend a few minutes with his/her teacher in the classroom. Our current hours are 7:30 am to 5:30 pm but will revert to the normal 7 am to 6 pm when the need arises. Please call (210) 558-8339 to schedule your tour!
