Admissions Update (April 27, 2018) Schedule a Tour!

The Montessori House School in Tenafly, NJ is currently accepting applications for all our programs for September 2018.

We have full-day and half-day Montessori program openings available for children born after October 15, 2011 and before October 15, 2016 including:

  • For ages 5 & 6: our mixed age Montessori Kindergarten/First Grade program (full-day, half-day for Kindergarten age only)
  • For ages 3 & 4: our mixed age Montessori Pre-Primary program (full-day or half-day)
  • For under age 3: our Montessori Stepping Stones program (children start at 30 months– 2.5 years)  (full-day or half-day)

New for 2018-19: we now offer a full-day option in Montessori Stepping Stones (under age 3), from 8:45 a.m. to 2:50 p.m., as well as our usual half-day morning or afternoon Montessori Stepping Stones options. 

To be considered for placement, families submit a paid application (download here) and visit the school for a tour.

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 in September 2018, 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 recommend that if you have childcare available.  With toddlers along, we spend less time in the classroom, and ask that you hold your child’s hand during 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 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 have completed the enrollment process for returning students and  for many new students.  We are now in a period of rolling admissions and can offer immediate confirmation of placement for the coming school year.

We urge families interested in entering September 2018 to act now: schedule a school visit and submit an application .
