You can find our 2019-20 tution rates here.   But do come visit, to find out why The Montessori House is so special and a great value!

We offer tours most school days.  Tours are most informative  when the classroom is filled with students and teachers.  Consequently, we prefer to conduct tours when classes are in session.  A personal, private tour  usually take about 45 minutes, with a generous amount of time in one or two classrooms — depending on your child’s age, we will show you the program they would enter initially, but also show you the programs available in future years.   (Note, we spend the most time in the classroom on an “adults only” tour, and strongly recommend”adults only”, if you have childcare available.  With toddlers along, we may spend less time in the classroom, and will ask that you hold your child’s hand throughout the tour).

We generally schedule tours to start between 9:00 and 10:15 in the morning, or around 1:00 in the afternoon.  You may schedule a personal tour by texting/calling us at 201-816-8343.  Or, we’ll contact you: e-mail us at admissions@themontessorihouse.com with your phone number and your child’s birth date, and we’ll reach out to schedule a visit.

Summary of our enrollment process:  We take applications throughout the year.  In December 2018, we will offer placement to returning families for September 2019.  In January we begin to offer placement to new families, roughly in the order we’ve receivved their applications.  After January, we have rolling admissions until a program is filled, after which we form a wait list.

We urge families interested in entering September 2019 to act now: schedule a school visit and submit an application .
