A non-refundable application fee of $55.00 must accompany all applications (including those for siblings). We accept applications on a year round basis. However, the bulk of our admissions process occurs between the months of November through January. Typically, enrollment slots are offered in January/February for the upcoming September school academic year start.
Upon September entrance, children must be between the ages of 15 months - 2.9 years for our Toddler House program and at least 2 years, 9 months old to enter into our Children's House program.
Families must make an appointment to tour the school grounds and spend time observing a classroom 'in action.' If, after observing you feel that BHMS is a potential good fit for your child, the next step in the process is to have your child come in to have an interview with BHMS staff to determine if a Montessori program is an appropriate placement for the child.
All enrollment decisions are made in the best interest of each individual child.
BHMS recognizes the important developmental benefits that arise as a result of having siblings attend the same school. Therefore, siblings of currently enrolled students are generally given priority placement; however, they must be interviewed before being offered a place in the school. If, upon interviewing the child, it is determined that a Montessori Program is not appropriate for a particular child, that sibling will not be offered a place in the school.
If two or more siblings are enrolled concurrently, a sibling discount may be applied.
Please speak with the Head of School, Michelle Ruxton for more details.
