Apply to MMCFH

Application Process Overview

Here at “The Maria Montessori Center”, we follow a rolling admissions process. We review the applications as they are completed and received. Our admissions process is designed to not only bring in the child but to identify and establish the connection between the family and The MMC. Our admission is based on several deciding factors which we consider carefully to determine if the student, family, and school will be a good fit with each other.

The primary question to us is, “Will we meet the needs of the parents and nurture the curiosity of the child?”. The information we provide on our tour helps educate those who are new to the Montessori environment.

All prospective parents and families are required to schedule a guided tour of our campus. During the tour, you’ll have the opportunity to explore our classrooms, meet our educators, and experience the Montessori environment and its effects in action.

After the campus tour, you’ll have the chance to engage in an information session and Q&A with our admissions team. This is a valuable opportunity to ask any questions you may have about our curriculum, philosophy, extracurricular activities, facilities, and more. You will be able to witness children working with Montessori materials and thriving in the environment.

“Education is a natural process carried out by the child and is not acquired by listening to words but by experiences in the environment.” 
-Maria Montessori

Schedule a School Tour

Once step 1 is completed, our admissions office will contact you to schedule a tour. Or you can also schedule a School Tour. Please bring your child when you come for a tour to streamline your process. 



Once the tour is finished, please reach out to the admissions office to arrange a date for your child to come in and shadow. A full-day shadow experience is necessary for ages 5 to 14. This allows the child to catch a glimpse of their classroom and gives the teacher an opportunity to assess their proficiency in each subject.

This might involve straightforward activities that assist us in gauging your child’s readiness and developmental stage. At the end of the day, you will have a one-on-one meeting with the teacher and the head of school. This provides us with the chance to become better acquainted with you, understand your expectations, and ensure that our educational approach is aligned with your family’s values.
