Admissions

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.

Parent Handbook

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 734-944-9300 to find the best time to visit.
