Enrollment

A child normally enters the three-year Montessori program at 2-3 years of age and continues through kindergarten. The materials he works with at three and four help him develop the concentration, coordination, and working habits necessary for the more advanced exercises he will perform at five and six.

The program is purposefully structured. Therefore, optimum results cannot be expected for a child who misses the early years of the cycle or for one who is withdrawn early. A Montessori school is neither a baby-sitting service nor a play school. Rather, it is a unique style of learning designed to take advantage of the child's sensitive years between three and six. By pursuing his own interests in a Montessori classroom, he gains an early enthusiasm for learning, which is key to his becoming a truly educated person.

Application can be made at any time and should be made as early as possible.
