We would like to meet your child and have them work in the classroom before a final decision about attendance is made. Children’s visits should last about 30 minutes. This will give your child a chance to experience working in the classroom with the teacher and other students. 

4. You will receive an enrollment packet and a start date

After the visit, if you think Children’s House Montessori School is the right place for your child, we will give you a contract and an enrollment packet, and discuss a start date with you. Return the contract, signed by both parents, and other required paperwork, along with a non-refundable enrollment fee of $250 to secure your child’s place in the classroom. 

5. Return your signed contract and $250 Registration Fee

Once we have received your signed contract and Registration Fee of $250, your child's place at Children's House will be confirmed! Remaining enrollment paperwork is due prior to your child’s start date.
