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.

Contact the school to schedule an observation appointment for yourself.
Request and submit a completed application form. Available spaces are assigned after January 7th to new students on a first come basis.
A tuition packet including Physicians Forms, Emergency Authorizations forms, Parent Handbook, and Tuition Agreement will be sent to you in late April, early May or upon acceptance to one of our programs.
