Enrollment

“Within the child lies the fate of the future.”

Enrollment

We provide open enrollment during most of the school year. Parents are invited to visit as part of the enrollment process to see for themselves that a Montessori education is a unique experience built upon a relationship of trust and respect.

Scholarships

Parents who need assistance with tuition are invited to inquire about our scholarship program. If you qualify for subsidy child care through Early Learning Resource Centers, you must first apply for these funds by visiting the PA Department of Human Services website and insert Child Care Works in the search box for subsidy information.

Those who qualify for private scholarship would have income at or below HUD Low and Moderate income guidelines. These guidelines change slightly each year. Please contact the office for more specific information.

First priority is given to families of children living in the HUD Focus Area of Allentown. Priority is also given to children applying before the Kindergarten year since the Montessori system of education is most beneficial to children attending two to three years.
