Admissions 2022-23

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

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).

Although we don’t know exactly what the future holds (at least in terms of the Covid-19 requirements and restrictions for The Montessori House School), families can continue to look to our school for top-notch, Montessori early childhood education for School Year 2021-22.  We welcome children from ages 2-1/2 years through 6 years.

We invite interested families to tour The Montessori House School either during the school day (9:45 a.m.) or after school (4:15 p.m.):

  1. “One Adult Only” tours at 9:15 a.m. most school days, when classes are in session.  Only one adult (fully vaccinated and masked) may visit during the school day.
  2. Tours at 4:15 p.m. most school days.  (Adults please wear masks.)

Book Online or please text/call us at 201-816-8343 or email us at

Summary of our enrollment process: 

We take applications throughout the year.   For the school year starting September 2022, we will have full-day and half-day 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)
  • For ages 30 months to 4 years old: our mixed age Montessori Pre-Primary program (full-day or half-day AM or PM)

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

You can find our  2021-22 tuition rates  and 2021 summer fees here.   We will update our fees and schedule in the December/January timeframe.  In the meantime, 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, 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 tor 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.

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