Madison Montessori School


We have found that the best way to understand and appreciate our school and what we think makes it so special, is for parents of prospective students to observe a class in progress and take a guided tour. We set aside Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays, beginning in November for this purpose. Schedule a tour today using our e-mail form or call 973-966-9544.  OBSERVATIONS ARE FOR ADULTS ONLY.

The Admission Process

Once you have observed, please complete the application and return it with the non-refundable application fee of $50. Admission is on a first come, first served rolling basis with preference given to siblings of current students.

Admission decisions are made by the administration and teaching staff. These decisions are based upon an evaluation of your child’s visit to Madison Montessori School and the needs of existing classes with regard to balance of age and sex.

If a place is not immediately available, you may wish to be placed on our wait list. Children on the waiting list for the current year must reapply for acceptance the following year. Application fees are paid only once.

Parents of applicants accepted for admission will receive a contract which must be returned with a non-refundable deposit. Upon receipt of a tuition deposit, we will hold a place for your child in our program, and you will be contractually obligated for the year’s tuition. (The school will forgive tuition after a withdrawal only if we are able to replace the student withdrawn with another child from the waiting list). Madison Montessori School admits students regardless of sex, race, religious beliefs or ethnic origin.

Occasionally, openings occur mid-year. Please give us a call to check availability. In the case that we offer this place to your child, tuition would be prorated accordingly.
