Step 1: Sign up for a Parent Tour

To learn more about our school, you can schedule a private tour, or attend our “Getting To Know Salem Montessori School” meetings. We’ll give you a brief overview of the Montessori philosophy and curriculum. You will have the opportunity to observe the students in the classrooms, followed by a time for a conversation about what you have seen.

Click to sign up and let us know you are coming. The meetings are held on the following Wednesdays:

The meetings start at 9:30 a.m. and will be over by 11 a.m. Although this meeting is designed just for adults, there will be another time when you can bring your child for a visit.

Step 2: Submit an Application

Complete the online application form and mail or drop off the application processing fee. The fee is non-refundable and does not guarantee a space.

We believe that seeing the children in action in the classroom is the most important step in understanding Montessori education and deciding if our school is a good match for your child. After attending a “Getting To Know Salem Montessori School” meeting, you may request an admissions application. In February, we begin the enrollment process for the following school year.

Step 3: New Families Schedule a Child Visit

Once the application has been completed, we will schedule a visit with your child at school.

Step 4: Complete the Enrollment Contract if your child is accepted

Admissions decisions are based on a variety of factors.

If a space is offered to your family, the enrollment contract and deposit will be due within two weeks to hold your space.  If space is unavailable, you may choose to be placed in the waiting pool.

Thank you again for your interest in our school. We believe that we have a unique learning environment for young children and their families and we are eager to have you visit. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have. We look forward to the opportunity to meet you.
