Enrollment Procedures

Parents of prospective students are encouraged to experience a working Montessori classroom for themselves by planning a visit during the school year. Visiting parents receive a tour of the school. After submitting an aplication, they observe the classroom during a morning work cycle while the children are immersed in learning activities. Parent classroom observation and a student interview are required of all families seeking admission for their child. We regret we cannot accommodate children during the observation visit. 


The following provides a step-by-step procedure for enrollment into South Florida Montessori Academy:

  • Schedule a tour of our Academy to receive information from our office. 
  • Familiarize yourself with basic Montessori philosophy.
