CHILDREN'S OWN SCHOOL A Montessori tradition since 1942
CHILDREN'S OWN SCHOOLA Montessori tradition since 1942

We are fully enrolled for the 2019-2020 school year. 

Admission and Enrollment 

“Children are human beings to whom respect is due, superior to us by reason of their innocence and of the greater possibilities of their future.”  Maria Montessori

At Children's Own School, we try to keep the admissions process as simple as possible. Our Open House is the opportunity to get to see our facilities and meet our community before you apply, but the essence of the school must be experienced when school is in session! We look forward to getting to know your family during the admissions process.

The application window for the 2020-21 school year is closed.  If you would still like to submit an application, we will put you on our waiting list.


The Application Process


Children’s Own School accepts applications, accompanied by an application fee of $50.00, beginning on October 1st the year prior to admission.  The application deadline is January 31.


We are looking for families committed to Montessori education and who are ready to stay for the developmental cycle of our primary program.  Therefore, we do not rank applications based on when they are received.  Admission is determined after careful consideration as to the appropriate placement for the child and with attention to balancing our classrooms by age and gender.


After we receive your child's application we will invite you to tour the facility, learn more about the Montessori method, and observe a classroom.


Enrollment Notification

Decision letters are sent out in the middle of March. 

Open House

We are very proud of our school, and we'd like to give prospective parents the chance get to know our school community!  Children's Own School hosts an Open House in the fall.  This is a chance to see our classrooms and move freely throughout the facility.   No reservations are necessary.


Parents Only Please.


2019 Open House is October 26, 2019 from 10:00am to 12:00 pm
