Submit an Application

Submitting an application is the only way to have your child considered for enrollment. Submit an Application. You will receive an email confirmation that your application has been received, please save that for your records. There is a $65 nonrefundable application fee per family (unless you receive CCIS), parents who apply for multiple children pay only one fee.

Families who would like to tour the school prior to submitting an application can sign up for our mailing list where we share registration information about public open house tours. Registration is required for attendance.

CCIS recipients are not required to pay an application fee. Please indicate on your application that you qualify for CCIS, and take your application to the payment page but do not pay. You will receive an email confirmation that your application has been received, please save that for your records.

Attend an Open House

Special COVID Announcement: Open houses will be held virtually during the time of COVID-19. Attendance at an open house or a private tour is a required step in the enrollment process. All applicants will be emailed at the address you submitted on your application and invited to attend an open house tour in the fall. You will have a chance to meet some of our administrators and teachers, take a look at the facility, learn more about our approach to Montessori, and ask any questions you may have. It is our hope that parents leave with a sense of the high-quality learning experiences that their child would enjoy here. Due to the length and nature of the tours we ask that only adults attend.

Admissions Decisions

Admissions decisions are focused on creating a balanced, mixed-age classroom. We consider the needs of the family such as AM or PM care and summer enrollment and we match candidates with the openings in the school, with preference given to families who need full year enrollment. If multiple children’s criteria meet the available seat, consideration to the order in which the application is received is also given among other factors. We value diversity in all its forms and we are proud to be an equal opportunity childcare provider. We aim to finalize enrollment by the end of March each year.

Equal Opportunity

We are an equal opportunity care provider, employer, and partner to families. Admissions, the provisions of services and referrals of clients, and employment decisions shall be made without regard to race, color, creed, religion, disability, ancestry, national origin (including limited English proficiency), age, sex, sexual orientation, gender, or gender identity.
