Children are evaluated on the basis of readiness for school and the Montessori environment. We encourage families who are interested in learning more about Montessori methods to apply. Children who are 2 years and 9 months, and older, can begin at the school. Children who are more than four years will usually be considered for admission only if they have had prior Montessori experience.
Tuition scholarships are available for qualified families. A letter of request must be addressed to the Board of Directors for consideration, with tax IRS information included.
Wellesley Montessori School welcomes all qualified individuals regardless of gender, race, color, creed, disability, sexual orientation, national or ethnic origin.
Preference is given to returning children and siblings. New children, ages 2 years and 9 months to 4 years and 2 months, will fill any available spaces. A child older than 4 years and 2 months would be considered for admission if they have had prior Montessori experience. Children may be admitted on occasion during the school year.
“If education is always to be conceived along the same antiquated lines of a mere transmission of knowledge, there is little to be hoped from it in the bettering of man's future.”
