We ask that you learn more about the Childrens House Montessori program, by watching the following:CH Classroom Tour.jpg

2). ATTEND AN ON-CAMPUS TOUR WITH OUR DIRECTOR OF CHILDREN'S HOUSE AFTER you watch the Curriculum Tour and Information Session. 

ON-CAMPUS TOURS are offered throughout the year on weekdays at 4:30pm.  The purpose of this tour is to answer your questions and help you decide if Sterling Montessori is the right fit for your child and family.

To sign up for the next ON-CAMPUS TOUR, please sign up HERE.  We will send you a reminder for your scheduled tour. 

It is important for prospective parents to understand the Montessori Children's House program prior to turning in an application for the preschool program. Topics of these include the Montessori philosophy and approach, readiness expectations of the child, and why Pre-K3, Pre-K4, and Kindergarteners are together in a classroom.

Please make sure to include the $25 Application Fee, made payable to Sterling Montessori Academy and Charter School. If applying for multiple birth children (twins, triplets, etc.), please submit separate applications and fees, but please place them in the same envelope.

4) WAITING POOL
Applicants are placed in a waiting pool, not a waiting list. If and when we have a seat to offer, we will select a student from the waiting pool based on the following criteria: staff & sibling preference, family previously enrolled at Sterling, previous Montessori experience (we require additional information as to where Montessori experience was acquired), and needs of the classroom(s).


5) OFFER OF ENROLLMENT
Once an offer of enrollment is extended, families will have 3 days to notify Sterling of your acceptance. All required registration paperwork, contract and fees must be submitted to Sterling within 10 days of accepting our offer.

Admission is offered on a rolling basis. Students are accepted when spaces become available throughout the current academic year.
