Interested in our school? That’s great! Due to the uniqueness of our model, attending to one of our Info Sessions is highly recommended. This event is designed to provide the necessary information to help parents decide if MdM is the right school for their child. Participants will tour the school, learn about Montessori del Mundo’s 90/10 Dual Language Model, the Montessori philosophy and the Conscious Discipline approach to self-regulation.
**Please note that in response to the current climate of COVID-19, these information sessions will be held virtually until further notice.**
Our next information sessions will be held on:
Keep in mind that our enrollment process consists of the following steps:
- Application (Intent to Enroll)
- Info session/tour
- Preschool Scholarship Application (if applicable)
The online application for the 2021-2022 school year is available here. The deadline for applications to be included in the enrollment lottery for 2021-2022 is midnight, February 12th, 2021. The lottery will be held on February 19th. Notification of lottery results will be mailed on February 26th. Confirmation of acceptance is due no later than March 12th. Failure to confirm by the due date will indicate relinquishment of a child’s seat. Notification of placement on the waitlist will be sent on March 19th. Please refrain from calling the office to determine placement on the waitlist.
The lottery for all age eligible students, with a completed application submitted prior to the application deadline, will take place on the lottery date each year at the school and will be open to the public. Students will be selected for any grade that is over-enrolled starting with Preschool 3 and proceeding up to 6th grade.
Montessori del Mundo will hold 3 Kindergarten lotteries each year, for each of the three subsequent Kindergarten classes. Children can enter the Kindergarten lottery for any given class in any and all of the years that is offered.
Ex: In February 2021 a lottery will be held for Kindergarten 2023-2024, Kindergarten 2022-2023, Kindergarten 2021-2022 in that order. A child who will be eligible for Kindergarten in 2023-2024 can apply to the Kindergarten lottery held in 2/2021, 2/2022, and 2/2023.
Families applying for a preschool seat will be automatically entered in the lottery for their respective Kindergarten year. Similarly, families applying for a future Kindergarten year will be automatically entered in the corresponding preschool lottery.
Drawings for the preschool and Kindergarten lotteries for any given class of students will be conducted concurrently. As each child is drawn, they will be enrolled in both their preschool class and their subsequent Kindergarten class. It is possible that space might exist in one but not both classes in which case the child will be placed on a waitlist for the over-enrolled class and enrolled in the class with space.
Parents granted enrollment to preschool and future Kindergarten may choose not to enroll their child in the preschool but to retain their spot in the future Kindergarten class.
Monthly tuition rates are due on the 1st of each month in August-June. Tuition may also be paid in full up front (due on August 1st) for a discount.
