The Montessori House School in Tenafly, NJ is accepting applications for September 2022 (School Year 2022-23). 

We have September 2022 openings available for new students in all our programs — 1/2-day Morning and Full-Day — for Pre-Primary Montessori (30 months through age 4) or Montessori Kindergarten/1st Grade (ages 5-6). 

We’re currently in a period of rolling admissions.  We have only a handful of 1/2-day Morning openings remaining, and two handfuls for Full-day placement.

We urge families interested in entering September 2022 to come visit soon: schedule a school visit and submit an application.

Update Summer 2022:  The Montessori House School will NOT offer a program for Summer 2022.  We prefer to have our summer program led by our usual classroom teachers.  In 2022, after two years of coping with Covid, most of our staff is looking forward to a full summer vacation and renewing and refreshing themselves for the next school year.

UPDATE Covid-19:  As you may know, after closing in March 2020, in compliance with Governor Murphy’s order, The Montessori House School reopened for full-time, in-person instruction on June 15, 2020.  Since that time, we’ve been open, in person, on our regular school schedule (including After Care) for children 2-1/2 to 6 years old.

Summary of our enrollment process: 

We take applications throughout the year.   For the school year starting September 2022, we have full-day and half-day morning Montessori programs openings available for children born after October 15, 2015 including:

  • For ages 5 & 6 years old: our mixed age Montessori Kindergarten program (full-day or half-day morning)
  • For ages 30 months to 4 years old: our mixed age Montessori Pre-Primary program (full-day or half-day morning)

To be considered for placement, families visit the school for a tour and submit a paid application (download here).  In January 2022 we offered placement for September 2022 to currently enrolled students, and we are now offering guaranteed placement to new students, roughly in the order we received their application.  We continue to have rolling admissions until our sessions fill at which time we start a wait list.

You can find our 2022-23 tuition rates here.

We offer tours most school days.  Tours are most informative when the classroom is filled with students and teachers, but we can only host one fully vaccinated and masked adult (no children) during the school day. We recommend you come visit when classes are in session.  A personal, private tour during the school day starts at 9:45 a.m. and usually take about 45 minutes, with a generous amount of time in one or two classrooms.

Note, we also offer after-school tours, but if you have childcare available, we still recommend an “adults only” tour after school too.  In our experience, visiting parents get the most from their time when they don’t have to also keep an eye on a toddler.   But, if that’s not convenient for you, we want you to visit and are happy to have your child accompany you for a tour.  After school tours start at 4:15 p.m. and are limited to two adults and two children.

You may schedule a personal tour online or contact us by texting/calling us at 201-816-8343.  Or we’ll contact you: e-mail us at with your phone number and your child’s birth date, and we’ll reach out to schedule a visit.
