Montessori School of Novato has a non-discriminatory policy of admission for children of two through four years of age. Admission is based on space availability (Currently there is a waiting list for all classrooms) and the agreement by staff and parents that the child is ready and will benefit from the classroom environment.

Order of Acceptance

  1. Toddler children moving to Primary Class

  2. Siblings

  3. Children on wait list from previous year

  4. New applicants who will fit in with the schedule, age and genders needed to fill the classrooms (we try to balance the classrooms)

*Please note that as of January 2018 our waitlist is full for the upcoming 2018-2019 school year in all classrooms. 

On-Line Application

Tour Dates & Times
We will begin tours in Oct. and they will be offered Monday-Thursday. We usually don't schedule tours after the first week in March unless there are openings available. The tours are about 1/2 hour long and begin at 9:30 AM. If possible, we ask that you come without your child for the first tour.  Of course we will accommodate you if you need to bring your child. 

Here is a short video to watch before your tour of the school.
