Schedule a Virtual Visit

We welcome you to schedule a time to visit our school, allowing you to get an idea of what your child’s experience would be like at Heartwood Montessori. Currently, we are conducting initial tours virtually to allow prospective families to get a taste of the active Montessori environment while remaining committed to our safety protocols.

After this visit, you will receive an application packet containing information about next steps, as well as an application for enrollment.  Upon receipt of this form (below) and a $50 application fee, we will contact you regarding your child’s enrollment status.

Typical Enrollment Timeline & Waiting Pool

Each spring our enrollment period for new students runs March 15 through March 31. Outside of this period, we accept applications on a rolling basis. Families are notified beginning in April regarding their child’s enrollment status for the following school year.

Heartwood maintains a Waiting Pool for all interested families. If our classrooms are fully enrolled we will place your child’s name in our Waiting Pool. Once an opening becomes available, Heartwood Montessori School admits new children from our Waiting Pool, rather than on a first-come first-serve basis. We make every effort to balance our classrooms according to the Montessori method, as we seek to evaluate the best fit for each community and its needs. To be placed in our Waiting Pool, families must first visit HMS and submit an Application.

Forms & Resources

The $50 application fee can be paid by check or through PayPal at @heartwoodmontessori.

A signed Enrollment Agreement and Materials Fee will be required to secure your child’s space at Heartwood Montessori School, should space be available.
