Admission process for the Toddler and Early Childhood Programs
1. Please call our office (415) 456-1748 to schedule a virtual tour.

2. During the tour, you will have an opportunity to meet the Director and our friendly teachers, see our facility, and watch the children in the classroom.  If/when we return to in-person tours and your child is already 2 years old, we highly recommend that your child is present to see how he/she integrates around the classroom.   

3. When you are ready, the application for enrollment can be provided during your tour or can be downloaded on our website. See "Application Downloads" on the bottom right of this page.   

4. In order for your application to be processed, you must submit a fully completed application form with a $100 non-refundable deposit and $500 deposit towards tuition in the form of a check or money order.  

5. After completion, the director will notify you about your child's acceptance to the program. Applicants are evaluated and placed based on your child's readiness, potential success in the Montessori classroom, and space within our program. Once accepted, parents must submit a complete enrollment package. 
SIBLING DISCOUNT: Families with more than one child enrolled are eligible for a 10% discount off of the oldest child's tuition.  

Tuition paid in 9 monthly installments with payments starting September 1st and ending May 1st.

The $500 enrollment deposit must be on file prior to enrollment. The deposit will be applied towards the last tuition payment.
