Admissions Process

Our admissions process at Montessori Children's School is thoughtful and thorough. We want our prospective families to understand the Montessori Children’s School difference. Here at MCS, it is important for our future parents to experience that difference first hand with a guided tour of our campus. Parents are eager to understand the Montessori difference and how it compares to traditional schools. We invite you to take a virtual tour with Stacey Gardner, our Head of School, and see for yourself why the Montessori Children’s School difference is a step above the rest.


Tours are currently paused for the beginning of the school year. Check back in October for tour availability. See you then!
