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.
We are honored that you are considering Children’s House Montessori School for your child and your family.
How to Apply
- 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.
- Schedule a visit during a school day to observe in a classroom and meet with an administrator. School visits are available by appointment October through May. This informational visit is intended for adults. In order for you to observe without distraction and to minimize disruption to the classrooms, we ask that you arrange child care for your child(ren). The visit takes approximately one hour.
- Attend the Prospective Families Open House in the fall – see Calendar for date and time.
“We love Children’s House for the teachers! They have years of combined Montessori experience; sensitivity to each child’s needs with gentle but firm encouragement; they implement social-emotional learning as well as Montessori education; and longevity at the school, which is important to us. Of course, we also love the outdoor classroom!”

When to Apply
Applications are accepted any time after your child’s birth. 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. Admission decisions for fall enrollment are made each year in early March. Priority is given to siblings and legacies with applications on file by January 1 of the enrollment year.
Additionally, as we fill our classrooms each year we attempt to balance age and gender within each group. We enroll children who are three or four years old and as space permits, children who are five years old by August 15th. We give preference to those five year olds who have previously attended a Montessori school.
*Applicants who have a birthdate from August 16 – September 30 may be permitted to enter such classroom at the request of the parent or legal guardian if the Director finds, through our Assessment for Readiness, the applicant is sufficiently mature emotionally and academically for our environment.
