Our regular school year begins late August and runs through mid- June. The school is closed on Federal Holidays, two weeks for Winter Break (December/January) and one week in the Spring. Our Spanish Immersion Summer Program is offered for two 3-week sessions in June and July. Children participating in the Summer Program must be 3 years of age.
To apply for enrollment, each family completes the following steps:
Observe one of our classrooms.
Submit an Enrollment Application along with a non-refundable $50.00 application fee.
After the observation, call to schedule an appointment with the Director or Assistant Director to answer questions about the program and receive full enrollment package.
Observation appointments are 30-minutes and are scheduled Wednesdays and Thursdays at 9:30 AM or 10:00 AM only, depending on the classroom you are observing. The observation is an initial introduction to the classroom “in action”. Once you have submitted an enrollment application and your child is admitted into the program, we will schedule a second appointment to pick up the full enrollment package and Admission Application Agreement.
For a child to be enrolled at La Casita Bilingüe Montessori School, each child must be at least 2.5 years of age, Potty-trained, and display readiness to be in a daily, structured classroom environment with other children.
