Steps For Admission
Complete and Submit an Application Form
Please fill out an Application Form completely and email the document to firstname.lastname@example.org. CHMS will then contact you to schedule a Private Tour. The application fee is not required, until you are ready to schedule a Playdate. However, if you choose to combine the Private Tour with the Playdate in one visit, you are required to submit the application fee.
Schedule and Attend Private Tour
Our parent-only private tours allow you to observe our toddler learning environment and four preschool learning environments. You will learn more about the CHMS philosophy and view how our students work in a peaceful Montessori environment.

Schedule and Attend Playdate
A Playdate is an opportunity for you to observe how your child engages in our Montessori classroom, with the guidance of a Montessori Directress. In addition, you will continue to learn more about CHMS from our Head of School.
Receive Enrollment Decision
We will make enrollment decisions for the coming school year within one week of your Play Date. When your child is offered a placement, the first month of tuition is required for submission within one month of receiving your acceptance letter. This payment secures your child’s placement for the upcoming school year.
If CHMS is unable to offer your child a placement, we will place your child’s name on our waitlist. If a placement becomes available, our Head of School will contact you.
CHMS adheres to Montessori educational principles and promotes a multi-ethnic perspective that recognizes and celebrates the diverse cultural perspectives and beliefs of our staff and families. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, gender, or religious or political beliefs.

Who May Enroll?
Children’s House Montessori School serves toddlers (24 months to 33 months) and preschoolers (3 to 5 years old). When your child enters CHMS as a toddler, s/he is welcomed in diapers. In order to be admitted to our Preschool Program, your child must be completely toilet trained and able to self-soothe without the dependence of a pacifier.
