APPLICATION & ENROLLMENT PROCEDURE
Entrance into Papillon Montessori is competitive. There are applicant pool waiting lists for each age group.
To begin the admission process, please schedule a tour here. Prospective parents are encouraged to visit our school and see our program for themselves. This is the best way to learn about Papillon Montessori and the Montessori philosophy. For your tour, we request that both parents are present and that you come without children so that you may be undistracted. Tours occur Tuesdays and Thursdays in the afternoon and last about 45-60 minutes.
After your tour, please get in touch with our office to complete a wait pool application. We currently have no available spaces, however, by submitting your child's name to the wait pool you will be in line for an opening. Please remember that this is a wait pool, not a waitlist. In order to run a successful Montessori program, a good age mixture of children is crucial. Therefore, children will be admitted from the pool based on several factors, such as age, not solely list order like a traditional waitlist. Preference will be given to siblings of current students, alumni, those requesting full-time attendance, certain age groups, previous Montessori students, etc.
Once your child is accepted, you will receive an offer of admission and be asked to complete a contract along with other necessary paperwork. Applicable fees will be due at this time.
