Enrollment

Because enrollment is always changing, Alyssum Montessori encourages all interested families to apply for the school year in which they are interested.  

Our elementary classrooms are full but our primary classroom has openings for the 2021-2022 school-year, so Alyssum is able to consider applications for children who are ages 3-6.  Once our classes are full, all applicants will be added to our waitlist and contacted as enrollment changes. To accommodate preschool families we have added a few ½ day opportunities. Apply now!  Our classes fill up quickly.

Updated March 25, 2021

We invite all families with children ages 3 to 12 or anyone curious about Wildflower Schools to attend a Prospective Parent Information Session on a TBD basis.  Please see additional information and steps for enrollment below.
