Please note the following age requirements for Montessori:
For the toddler program, children must be eighteen months old by September 30th.

For the early childhood program, children must be three years of age by September 30th of the year they will be starting. If your child is within a few weeks of this date he/she will be interviewed by the principal to determine readiness. All children must be completely toilet trained and able to toilet independently when they begin school in September. Pull-ups are not allowable.



*Arrivals/Drop-offs for Early Childhood Students begins at 8:00am*



"It is necessary for the teacher to guide the child without letting him feel her presence too much; so that she may be always ready to supply the desired help but never be the obstacle between the child and his experience." Maria Montessori
