Morningstar Montessori House of Children

Plan a Visit

Classroom Observation

Morningstar Montessori House of Children is pleased to offer the opportunity to visit the classroom to all interested persons. Due to heavy demand, we ask that the following general rules are observed to avoid interference with the work of our children:

  • Make arrangements to observe the classroom with the Directress at least one week in advance.
  • Avoid distracting the children from their work through direct interaction, conversation with them or the Directress, or by wandering around the room.
  • Plan your visit with only adult observers and the child who may be attending. Babysitting is not available for other siblings.
  • Familiarize yourself with the Montessori method and classroom in advance.

Parents interested in enrolling children are expected to observe in the classroom. If they then decide to choose the Montessori approach, they are given a Registration Form. After the Registration Form is completed and returned with the Registration Fee, an interview is arranged with the child and the parents. In the case of late admission or children on the waiting list, the interview is conducted at the time that the opening occurs.
