ENROLLMENT: WHAT TO EXPECT
Our enrollment process is thoughtfully designed to give you the opportunity to experience a typical day at our school and help prospective families familiarize themselves with the Montessori philosophy.
The initial introductory tour gives an overview of the philosophy, while the scheduled observation will allow you to see the Montessori philosophy in practice within our classroom environment.
1. Inquiry From
The enrollment process starts with a no obligation inquiry form that allows us to better evaluate your interests and needs for your child. Download and complete the form, then email it in to us and we will promptly follow up to schedule an informational meeting and tour.
2. Introduction, Tour & Application
The informational meeting is scheduled after your Inquiry Form is received. This meeting provides an introduction to our program and the Montessori approach to education. A tour of the school and grounds is also included. At this time, families that wish to proceed with enrollment will be provided with an application form. Applications for the September to mid-June school year need to be completed and returned to the Montessori Farmhouse office with a $50 non-refundable application
4. Application & Acceptance
After the observation, families will be notified regarding acceptance to the program. The family completes and returns a registration packet which includes an enrollment agreement and other relevant information. Once this packet is returned with a first and last payment for services, the child’s placement in the program is secured.
After the application is received, we invite parents and child to schedule a time to observe the classroom during program hours. These observations are usually scheduled on Monday through Thursday, between 9:15 and 11:00 am.
