mcs-7Thank you for your interest in the Montessori Children’s School!

After much contemplation, we will not be opening up our waiting list in November of 2023.
We currently have a very long waiting list that will more than fill our school for the next 2 years. Because of this, we do not want to open the list this year and give families any impression that there will be a space for them in the next 2 years.
We do plan to reopen the list in November of 2024, so please call us the beginning of that month to set up a time to come in to observe and to see if our school is a good fit for your family. We regret any confusion or frustration not opening our list this year may cause, but want the list to be as realistic as possible for everyone.

In January, we ask all parents currently enrolled if they would like their child to return in the fall for the next school year. Then we know how many spaces are available for the fall. At the end of January we start calling the names on the waiting list and usually, but not always, get through all the names of the children who got on the waiting list the previous November.

mcs-6The process of calling the families, inviting the to come in and observe again, answering questions, etc. does take some time. We appreciate the time and energy it takes to determine if this school community is one that suits your family and usually give each family about a week to decide their plans for the fall. Because of this process we usually get to every name on the list and the families know if there is a space in the fall or not by the end of March.

Admission Policies

We enroll children here ages 3 to through the 6th grade.  Some parents get on our list when their child is an infant and that is just fine, we will keep them on the list until their child is ready to attend. Children need to be using the bathroom on their own, and be out of diapers to attend school here.

  • Siblings have priority enrollment. If you have one child attending and your younger child is ready to come to school, he/she will be enrolled before we call the families on our waiting list.
  • Waiting list families are considered without regard to race, national/ethnic origin or religion.
