Registration Process


Priority enrollment is offered to current families in February of each year. We open registration to new families in mid-March.

Because of strong interest in our program, and our limited capacity, we do not host Open Houses. Instead, we encourage interested families to contact us to schedule a tour to meet with the Head of School and view our classroom. Tours typically take place at 4:00 on Tuesday afternoons during January and February, and reservations must be made in advance. Other times can be arranged if needed. (See the "Contact Us" page.) If we do not have any openings for a child of your child's age, we will let you know that before you would visit our school. 

After careful consideration of our program, parents may complete a enrollment application form for their child. A non-refundable registration fee is required at the time the enrollment application is received. If we are already at capacity, the child’s name will be entered on our wait list. 

Montessori Children’s House of Sycamore and DeKalb accepts children without regard to race, religion, gender, or ethnic background. In addition to the number of students, we attempt to achieve a balance of ages, gender, skill levels, and personalities for our classroom community.
