Eligibility

The Montessori primary classroom is open to any child between the ages of 2.5 and 6 years old that exhibits social, emotional, and developmental readiness. The classroom program accommodates the 3k, 4k and Kindergarten years. Elements of readiness include:

  • being potty-trained
  • ability to communicate verbally
  • some amount of impulse control and capacity to follow directions.

Readiness is determined by a Montessori-certified lead teacher during the interview process. Some children are ready as young as 2.5 but the majority of children are ready closer to 3 years old. Enrollment is on-going throughout the year on a case-by-case basis.

The Montessori elementary classroom is open to students ages 6-12. The program accommodates elementary grades 1-6. Prior experience in a Montessori environment is ideal, but not required. Students younger than 6 exhibiting developmental, social, and academic readiness for an elementary environment are accepted on a case-by-case basis. Enrollment requires a phone or in-person interview with the child’s primary caregiver.
