How to Apply to Children's House

If you are interested in enrolling your child in Children’s House Montessori School, please follow the steps below:

1. Make an appointment to tour the school

We are currently conducting all tours virtually. Call 703-481-6678 to schedule your tour or use the Admissions Inquiry form to contact us. You can also use the "Schedule Your Tour" buttons on our website to book a tour through our Facebook page.

2. Fill out an application and pay the $50, non-refundable, Application Fee

You can download a copy of the application in the Parents section of our website. We can also email you a copy, if you prefer. Please return your completed application and $50 application fee to:

Children's House Montessori School

1625 Wiehle Ave

Reston, VA 20191

Children who are transferring to Children's House from another Montessori school have priority in our application process.

3. We will schedule a time for your child to visit the classroom

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.

Do you have space for the coming school year?

Please call us at 703-481-6678 for our current availability.

What’s the main difference between Montessori and a traditional preschool?

We answered this question in one of our most popular blog posts: What’s the Difference Between Montessori and Traditional Preschool?

Do you provide snack and lunch?

Depending on the program selected, parents are responsible for sending in up to two snacks and lunch. All children have an opportunity to eat their  morning snack and children who stay later will need lunch and an afternoon snack. Children will eat their afternoon snack before the 3:00 dismissal time.

My child has stopped napping. Do they still have to nap?

We are licensed by the Virginia Department of Social Services and follow their guidelines regarding a rest period for children under the age of five. Children in our preschool age group rest together in the early afternoon and our pre-kindergarten children rest in a separate space. Children do not have to fall asleep, but they must stay with their group for the duration of the rest period. For more details, please call us at 703-481-6678 to discuss your child’s needs.

Do you have a 2 or 3 day program?

No, our program is five days a week. If your child needs an adjustment period of two or three days a week to build up to a full school week, please contact us at 703-481-6678 and we will be happy to discuss a transition plan that works for your family.

Does my child have to be completely potty trained to attend?

We ask that children be toilet trained prior to their start date,  however we understand that this expectation can cause added stress for both parent and child. Please talk to us about your child’s current potty training status during your tour. At a minimum we do not allow children to attend CHMS in diapers or pull-ups as we do not have diapering stations in place. We are happy to escort children to the restroom and assist as needed, but expect that the toilet training process is already underway and going well before a child joins our community.

Are you a nut-free facility? How do you deal with food allergies?

We are unable to guarantee a nut-free space at this time. Our landlord, the Unitarian Universalist Church in Reston, uses our space for Sunday school classes and other weekend events, and we can not control what foods are brought in during that time. If your child has food allergies, please talk to us about their needs during your tour.

Do you have a diverse student body?

Children’s House Montessori School does not discriminate on the basis of race, national or ethnic origin, religion, gender, disability, or sexual orientation. We embrace the diversity we experience in our school, from both the staff and the student body, and welcome families from all backgrounds into our community. 

Are your teachers Montessori certified?

Children’s House Montessori School of Reston is licensed by the Virginia Department of Social Services and is a full affiliate member school of the American Montessori Society (AMS).

All lead teachers are AMS certified and bring years of training, teaching, and experience to their classrooms. We maintain a ratio of one teacher to every ten students.
