Kindergarten Admissions Process
1.) Schedule a Tour
Please set-up a date to visit the school by scheduling a tour using the link below or calling:
Stephanie Wice: New Rochelle Campus (914) 636-6202
2.) The Parent/Child Visit
After a tour of the Montessori Kindergarten classrooms and the school, you and your child will meet privately with our Kindergarten Admissions Coordinator for 20 to 30 minutes. We will have a conversation about your child and your goals to find out if this is the best environment for him/her. We will also describe the school’s progressive educational philosophy and how it prepares your child for academic achievement and personal success. We also look forward to answering any questions you might have about how our philosophy can be extended to support your child’s development and education at home.
After your tour, fill out the form below.
3.) Student Visit to Classroom
To ensure the Montessori learning environment is the right choice for your child, we welcome him/her to join one of our classes for two half days to get better acquainted with one another. At the end of that time, your family and the school will typically know if our learning environment is a place where your child can excel. Before your child comes for a visit, please submit the Student Visit Form.
Submit the online Application Form. The office will normally call you by the next work day to complete the application process and guide you through the next steps. Space is limited. Decisions for admissions are made on a rolling basis as spaces become available.
4.) Health Assessment Forms
If your child has been accepted to enroll, please submit the completed health forms. State of NY Health Regulations require all children to have a NYS Health Form completed by a pediatrician and submitted to the school prior to enrollment. Please print the form below and give to your pediatrician for completion.
- Save forms as your child’s name.
- Email as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- In subject title, type “Health Forms for (insert child’s name here)”.
5.) Tuition/Tuition Assistance
The Kindergarten grade is the 3rd year of the Montessori Primary program. As such, in Montessori, Kindergarten tuition is also called Primary Tuition.
The school participates in a Pilot Program that is part of a larger grant program that provides subsidized tuition for a limited number of qualifying students.
