We suggest the following steps as a way to get to know us, our program, and our classroom:


Open Houses are held seasonally. These informal events allow you to see the classroom and mingle with current families.  Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for announcements!

Personal School Tours are given during the school day, either at 10:30 A.M. or 2:00 P.M., and last about 30 minutes.  The Director will introduce you to the classroom and tell you a bit about our Montessori style.  You will then have time to observe the children at work, and the Director will answer your questions.  So that parents can be fully present for the experience, we ask that they take the tour without their children.

Student Visit  After your personal school tour, it will be your child’s turn to visit A Growing Place Montessori.  Your little one will come during a school session to see our space, greet the children, and meet the guides.  We will also demonstrate a material for your child, who will get to take a turn doing the work.  These short and sweet student visits last about 15 minutes.

Application  A Growing Place Montessori School employs a rolling admissions process.  Official enrollment begins one year prior to your child’s start date, while early applicants have the opportunity to join our “priority admissions registry.”  To reserve a space for your child in our classroom, you will submit a simple application form and accompanying fee.

Phasing In & Orientation  Little visits to our classroom help young children become familiar with us. In May, we invite our incoming students for another individual visit during our class session. At the beginning of the school year, our phasing-in days gently transition the children into our school pattern through several small, shortened class sessions.
