“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 age, gender, diversity, sibling/legacy status, date of application, and the child’s readiness, including independent toileting skills. We seek families who are committed to the Montessori philosophy and committed to supporting 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.
We primarily enroll new children who are three years old to balance our mulit-age classrooms. As space permits, we enroll a few children who are four and five years old. We give preference to those older children who have previously attended a Montessori school. Children must turn five on or before August 15 of their kindergarten year.
*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.
*Note: Admissions decisions for the 2024-25 school year will be announced via email the first week of March. In order to be considered, all applications must be completed by Wed., Feb. 21, 2024.
