Appointment for a Tour/Visit
This is the first step in our enrollment process. You are invited to make an appointment to visit our Montessori School in Southfield, MI. Please call us at (248) 353-7253 to set up a convenient time. We request that this first visit be an “adults only” visit. This allows you, as a parent, to assess the school, our classrooms, and the Montessori method for the right fit for your child. This meeting is typically about 45-60 minutes long.
After visiting the school and if you are interested in enrolling in one of our programs, you must fill out an application. All applications must be submitted with a one time application fee. Applications for all our programs are accepted year-round and are available on the website (at the bottom of this page). You may also contact the school directly to have an application sent to you. Applications should be mailed directly to the school or hand delivered.

Curriculum Director Meeting and Child Visit
After receiving your application, we will contact you to set up a time to meet with our Director, while your child visits one of our classrooms. The child visit in the classroom lasts approximately 45 minutes. If needed, parents are welcome to escort your child to the classroom and stay for a few minutes until the child can be engaged in a classroom activity and then the parent(s) will have time to meet with our Executive Director. This will give the parent an opportunity to ask more specific questions about our programs and find out more details about the school, our staff, and the Montessori philosophy. It also allows the school’s teaching staff to meet with the student candidate and observe the child in the Montessori classroom environment.
In the spring, after assessing the number of openings available in our programs, the school makes it’s decision on enrollment for the following school year. It is at this time that you will be notified about acceptance or waiting list status in one of our programs. Please see our Admissions policy for priority enrollments in each of our programs.
The following forms and fees are needed by the school to complete enrollment:
- Signed enrollment agreement
- Non-refundable enrollment fee (for new families) and enrollment deposit.
- School Year Forms
- Physician's report and vaccination records.
