    Tours and Orientation

    Attending an orientation session is strongly recommended before you apply to our program and required before attending our school if selected in the enrollment process.

    You will discover the foundational principals that guide Montessori learning and curriculum and visit our classrooms. It will be a time to ask questions and see if Montessori is a good fit for your family.

    See the list of dates to reserve a spot.
