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 and observe the classroom during the morning work cycle while the children are immersed in learning activities. This visit is required of all families seeking admission for their child. Your appointment will include 15 minute classroom observation as well as time to meet one of our administrators. We regret we cannot accommodate children on this first 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 and arrange an observation in one of our classrooms (please call ahead to make an appointment).
