Admission & Tuition



Please email your child’s name, date of birth, and requested schedule (days/full or part time) to to be placed on our enrollment waiting list!


Our admissions process consists of:
• submission of an application form
• payment of a $50 nonrefundable application fee
• payment of a nonrefundable deposit equal to 5 percent of the tuition for the school year (to be applied towards annual tuition)
• and a classroom visit and/or interview for students (depending on the age of the child). Typically done over the summer before the start of the school year.

Parents of incoming students may request to set up a classroom visit to observe our classroom. These observations are scheduled in 15 minute blocks during our morning work cycle and are for parents only.

Children who are applying as new students to our school will have the opportunity to meet the teachers and spending some time in the classroom before they begin school.

All admissions decisions are made after consultations between faculty members and are based on a variety of factors. These include the child’s age, prior Montessori experience, class composition and the compatibility of the parents’ educational philosophy with that of Wildwood Montessori School. New and transferring students are warmly welcomed and quickly become a part of our community. In the event that we are unable to admit an applicant, the deposit will be fully refunded. All enrollments are subject to classroom capacity.

Please note:  All deposits, tuition payments, and fees become non-refundable if the application is withdrawn by the family once placement has been granted.

We enroll children throughout the school year on a space available basis.  Please contact the school if you would like to place your child’s application in our waiting pool.  You are strongly encouraged to start your child in our program by the age of three years old as this is when the building blocks of the Montessori education are set. We do accept students who are older if we have openings, however it is a rare occurrence.

Wildwood Montessori School does not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, creed, ethnic or national origin, religion, disability, or age in our admissions policy.
