Admission Policy

Gateway Montessori School is a nonprofit corporation and admits students without regard to race, religion, or national origin.

Children who are at least 2.5 but have not yet attained their third year of age may be admitted if it is determined that our preschool program will meet their needs. If your child will not be at least 2.5 years old by the first day of classes, please talk to the head of school about establishing a starting date or enrolling in the Toddler Program. Applicants for the Preschool Program are also expected to be toilet-trained and able to dress/undress themselves by the first day of classes.

Children must be independently walking and must be free of bottles and pacifiers, as we encourage language throughout the day and will be teaching children to drink from a cup.
