Prospective Parent Meeting
Attend a Prospective Parent Meeting to learn more about our school. We ask that both parents or guardians attend this meeting.
Prospective Parent Meetings are offered on Tuesdays at 9:15 AM and Thursdays at 1:00 PM. Toddler families are requested to attend on Tuesday mornings because of the classroom Montessori work schedule.
Please visit our Eventbrite page to register to attend the Prospective Parent Meeting that works best for your family. Child attendance is requested. We must meet your child before enrollment can be offered.
After you have attended a Prospective Parent Meeting, we ask that all students ages 5 and older participate in a class visit. This gives us an opportunity to make sure the Montessori environment is a match for your child. This will be scheduled directly with a member of our Admissions Team.
Once the class visit has been completed, the Admissions Team will determine if enrollment will be offered. In viewing prospective students, we always strive to ensure that the family’s and school’s core values, goals, and expectations of the child are the same. Siblings of currently enrolled students are given priority, followed by students who have previously been in a Montessori environment.
Once enrollment is offered, families will have 48 hours to accept the placement. In order to secure placement, the school must receive a signed Tuition Agreement and a non-refundable enrollment fee must be paid. Families must also create an account with our online tuition management program, FACTS, and create a payment plan for the school year they are enrolling for.
Starwood Montessori School will continue to accept enrollments throughout the year if spaces are available.
Students who have completed the Admissions process and have been accepted when our programs are full, will be placed on our wait list. We must have a signed Tuition Agreement for a child to be secured on the wait list.
Families will be notified when a place becomes available and will have 48 hours to accept by creating an account with our online tuition management program, FACTS, and by setting up a payment plan for the school year they are enrolling for. If a family does not accept within 48 hours, the placement will be offered to the next person on the wait list.
Starwood Montessori School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, age, gender, sexual orientation, religious or spiritual beliefs, marital status, family configuration, handicap, or political affiliation in the administration, rendering of services, or in the employment of personnel.
