Admissions

1. Schedule a Tour

The first step in the admissions process is to schedule a school tour. We invite you to witness the magic that is our Montessori school, where our students engage in active learning in beautifully prepared learning environments. The tour will take approximately 1 hour and includes visiting our classroom and our natural outdoor learning spaces. 

We are eager to welcome you and your children into our learning community. Seeing our classrooms in action will illustrate how the Montessori approach fosters children’s innate curiosity, enthusiasm, independence and active engagement. Bring your questions—we look forward to answering them! To request a tour please visit our “Contact” page or call our office at (910) 319-0813. 

2. Submit an Application

Applications are available under the “application” tab above and will also be provided during your tour. A $75 non-refundable application fee should accompany each child’s application. Applications can be mailed or delivered in person to our business address: Topsail Montessori,  301 Whitebridge Road, Hampstead, NC 28443.

We also ask that you review our school policies in the “Topsail Montessori Parent & Student Handbook,” (available under “Parent Handbook” tab above) to make sure our school will be a good fit for your family before submitting an application.

3. Enrollment

The Head of School determines the availability of space in each classroom. If no opening is available, your child’s application will be included in the waiting pool and you will be contacted when an opening arises. Once your child is accepted, an enrollment contract will be written. Parents must sign and return the contract along with the tuition deposit (equal to 1 month’s tuition) to secure the child’s placement. Required paperwork and additional information will be provided to you as your child’s start date approaches. These forms and the first payment must be submitted prior to your child’s first day of school.
