Admissions

Please note that admission to Willow Oak Montessori Children’s House will NOT result in any preference to obtain a seat in the proposed Willow Oak Montessori public charter school program. All applicants to the charter school program MUST participate in the lottery if the number of applicants exceeds the available seats for a given grade.

The admissions process for Willow Oak Montessori Children's House begins with you attending one of our Open Houses and/or Parent Q&A Sessions to learn more about our program. Open Houses are designed to acquaint parents of prospective students with the mission of the school, the Montessori philosophy, and its implementation in the classroom.


Parent Q&A Sessions are designed to allow families a chance to ask questions specific to their children and the Montessori method. Children are required to attend. A Parent Q&A Session and a completed admission application are required for a student to be considered for admission.

Our classrooms are now full for the 2012-2013 school year. Please click here to access the online application if you wish to apply to join our waiting pool. If you are offered a spot in our waiting pool, students are admitted from that pool as spots become available to balance our classes by age, gender, and to create a diverse community.

If your child is admitted to our program, you must complete an online enrollment process and submit a $350 non-refundable joining fee and $490 security deposit within 14 days (see Tuition and Financial Aid) to secure the offered spot in the class.

Applicants with special needs or family members of applicants requiring any type of accommodation during the admissions process are encouraged to indicate what type of accommodation is needed.
