Dear Parents,

Thank you for your interest in Sandpiper Montessori Preschool.  Registration for our returning students will begin January 5th. Enrollment for new students will begin February 5th.  In the event that we have more applicants than space available, we will begin a waitlist.  All students will be notified of their enrollment the first week in March. You may begin the enrollment process by completing an online application along with a $60.00 application fee (non-refundable).

All students must be bathroom independent and 3 years old on or before August 31st.  Your child should also be able to communicate basic needs to the teacher (hunger, hurt, need to use the bathroom).  All students who are admitted will have a six-week period over which we will assess our ability to meet your child’s learning needs.  If we determine after this period that the Montessori program may not be the best fit for your child, we will work with you to find another learning alternative and will make any communication needed with other schools to help the transition occur.  Our primary purpose is to find the best learning environment possible for your family.  We look forward to working with you and your child.
