Application Process

We welcome your interest in Children’s Garden Montessori School and invite interested parents to attend an Open House, during which parents may listen to a presentation about the school, visit our facility, and ask questions. Prospective parents may also wish to observe a classroom in action.

Please see Open House and Observations for more information.

Apply – Waitlists & Lottery

Enrollment is open to children 18 months through Kindergarten age, with the application process beginning in the fall prior to the year of desired enrollment.

We accept online applications for new students October 10 through February 10 for enrollment the following fall. Enrollment offers are made through a lottery system with wait-list status letters sent by March 15th. Wait-lists are formed based on age, gender and programs. Parents should plan to visit the school before the March lottery.

Upon receipt of your application and a non-refundable application fee children’s names are placed in age and gender based lottery pools.

Applications received after the lottery deadline are applied to round 2 wait-lists. 

Please complete and submit the application online. Payment may be made through PayPal account or credit card.

Application fee: $65  There is no application fee for children for whom you are reapplying.

The application is not complete until payment is received.
