Admission Information

A Northstar Montessori student explores creative play with a farm animal activity.

Northstar Montessori wants to ensure the success of each child enrolled in our school. Since every child is unique, every child’s learning style is different and we recognize that Montessori may not be right for every child, or every family.

Because of this, we have created an enrollment process to help us get to know each child a little bit before a family enrolls.

Our application process is as follows:

  • Parents tour the school and meet with Tami
  • Child comes to class for a minimum of 30 minutes to meet with teachers
  • Enrollment decision is made
  • Enrollment fee and all forms completed and turned in
  • Deposit paid

Availability

We are still enrolling for the current School Year program, but spots are filling up fast. Please call the school at 944-9300 and ask for Tami to discuss openings.

Scheduling a Visit

All families must visit the school prior to acceptance.  We have an “open door policy,” which means that families and visitors may drop by at any time, but we require all guests to check in at the office and they will be given a guided tour by a staff member. If you would like to see one of our schools at specific times in our schedule, such as during work time or music time, please call 944-9300 to find the best time to visit.

Reserving a Spot

Once you have gone through the entire enrollment process and we agree that Northstar is a good fit for your child, you may reserve a spot by turning in all paperwork, the application fee and a deposit.  We will agree on a start date (for example, the first day of school in the fall) and we will begin charging you on that date.

Waiting List

Once our school is full, we place children on the wait list in the order their completed applications are received.  You need to go through the application process up to turning in forms and paying your enrollment fee to be placed on the wait list.
