Tour Our School

The admissions process for Willow Oak Montessori Children's House may begin with your whole family attending one of our Open Houses to learn more about our program or by attending a School Tour. Open Houses and School Tours are designed to acquaint parents of prospective students with the mission of the school, the Montessori philosophy, and its implementation in the classroom. In addition, we also encourage parents to schedule a "parent only" classroom observation to see the classroom in action.

Application and Family Consultation

Family Consultations, which are scheduled upon receipt of your application for admission, are designed to allow families a chance to ask questions specific to their children. The prospective student and each of his/her parents/guardians are required to attend. A Family Consultation and a completed admissions application are required for a student to be considered for admission.
