Enrollment Steps

Glen Park Montessori is currently enrolling children for the 2022/ 2023 School Year.

Age Eligibility

We welcome children aged 2.8 by August or individual start date.  Previous experience in a childcare setting is highly beneficial but not mandatory as we take into consideration maturity, independence and readiness.

Step One

Schedule Your Parent Visit

We feel it is essential for parents to observe children engaging in the Montessori Method in person to fully understand the beauty of the environment, the efficacy of the Montessori Method and the peacefulness of the children working within it.

You will meet with Rosemary Rae, Head of School, and be invited to view our downstairs classroom from our outside deck. Masks and social distancing will need to be observed until further notice.

Please bring your application and family photo to this meeting. Appointments must be made at least 24 hours in advance.

Step Two

Schedule Your Child/Family Visit

 After completing your parent/adult tour you may book your individual family visit. You and your child can experience our lovely outdoor play area (home of our 100 year old Redwood tree) and you will meet our Lead Teacher, Lisa Baranco-Smith. The $50 application fee is due at this appointment.

Step Three


If we mutually decide that GPM is a good fit for you and your child and we have space availability, we will then continue to the Admission Process with you.  Upon receipt of our invitation to join Glen Park Montessori you will be given 5 days to respond after which you will receive our welcome and enrollment packets. Our annual admission start dates are in August, or as space is available during the school year. Please feel free to contact us here if you need more information.
