Brady croppedWe are honored that you are considering Children’s House Montessori School for your child and your family. The following outlines our admission process:

​​​​​​​​Admission Application ​​​​​​​​​​​

Submit the Admission Application and $100 non-refundable application fee to begin the admission process.
Students may be enrolled mid-year if spaces are available.

Tour the School

  • Schedule a visit during a school day to observe in a classroom and meet with an administrator
  • Attend the Prospective Families Open House in the fall – see Calendar on Home Page

We will accept a child’s application anytime after  birth and will it hold until the age-appropriate admission year. Admission notifications for fall enrollment are sent to parents in early March. We enroll children who are three or four years old and will consider enrolling those who are five as space permits with priority given to those who have previously attended a Montessori school.

*For an applicant who has a birthdate from August 16 – September 30, he/she may be permitted to enter such classroom if the Director finds through our Assessment for Readiness, at the request of the parent or legal guardian, the applicant is sufficiently mature emotionally and academically for our environment.

Admission priority is given to siblings and legacies whose applications are on file by January 1 of the enrollment year.

Admission  Policy

We truly appreciate your time in completing our admission process in its entirety, including the school visit and application fee. We want you to be sure that Children’s House is the optimal learning environment for your child’s unique learning style and the best school environment for your family.

The admission policy of Children’s House gives equal consideration to all children, regardless of race, color, creed, sex, religious denomination or national origin. Montessori education is an approach to learning with no distinction of class, culture, or intelligence.

Furthermore, we are committed to creating classrooms that reflect the Nashville community at large with a diverse mix of students balanced by age and gender. We believe that children who experience diversity when they are young will grow to accept and cherish differences in others. Considerations for enrollment include date of application and child’s readiness, including independent toileting skills. We seek families who are committed to the Montessori philosophy and committed to supporting the Children’s House in its educational programs and  annual fundraising efforts.

Limited tuition assistance is available to qualifying families. We practice a “need blind” admission policy  meaning a request for tuition assistance does not influence the admission decision. See our tuition page  for more information about submitting a confidential application for tuition assistance.

​Should you have any questions regarding our admissions process, please contact our office at  (615)298-5647 or  We hope to see you soon!
