Enrollment Card and Registration Fees are both due to secure your child's position. Once this is received, parents are given the required state forms that need to be completed before the child’s first day of school.


We accept students of varying academic ability and diverse learning styles.  However, we do not accept students who potentially may be disruptive to the class or who will require excessive individual attention from staff members.  New students are admitted with a 30-day probationary period.  This time will give both, parents and the school to determine if Montessori Explorer is the best fit for your child.


Montessori Explorer School reserves the right to remove a student at any time if, in the sole judgment of the School, that student’s conduct, progress, or influence on campus is not in keeping with the School’s accepted standards, as determined by the School’s sole discretion.


We will continue enrolling new children based on space available throughout the school year on a first come first serve basis.
