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.

For New Students & Children Moving into a New Classroom

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

All families must visit the school facility prior to acceptance. Northstar Montessori has an “open door policy,” which means that families and visitors may drop by at any time, but we do require all guests to check in at the office. One of our staff members will be happy to offer you a guided tour at any time, but if you would like to see our school at specific times in our schedule, such as during work time or music time, please let us know in advance.

3. Watch Your Email for Enrollment Paperwork

Each August you will be asked to update your information:
