Thank you for considering Nature Walk Montessori School for your child's education and care. We welcome your interest. Applications are accepted year round. To be considered for enrollment in our Children's House a child must be 33 months of age and able to use the bathroom independently. No child shall be denied admission to Nature Walk Montessori School on the basis of race, ethnic background, religion, social class, or family structure.
The first six weeks of school are considered a trial period for parents and the school. If concerns abut the child's ability to respond to the Montessori environment arise, the school or family may decide to withdraw the child. The annual tuition commitment takes effect after the trial period.
Because the Montessori program is based on a three-year cycle of development (see Planes of Development) we ask parents to make a three-year commitment for their child to complete the Children's House program.
Before applying, an informational interview may be scheduled. This is a time for us to get to know you and your child better, gather additional information, and discuss how our environment might meet your child's needs. During this meeting we will discuss Montessori philosophy and program specifics of Nature Walk Montessori School.
