Enrollment

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

Alyssum Montessori School no longer has openings for the 2022-2023 school-year, so can no longer consider applications for children ages 3-12.  Once our classes are full, all applicants will be added to our waitlist and contacted as enrollment changes. 

Updated October 31, 2022

We invite all families with children ages 3 to 12 or anyone curious about Wildflower Schools to contact Teacher-Leaders listed below.  Please see additional information and steps for enrollment below.

Tuition

Our 2022-2023 tuition rate is $7800 per child for 3 & 4 year olds and $8800 for students Kindergarten through 6th grade.  This rate is intended to be an “all inclusive” rate so no extra fees will be added on top of this set amount.  After school care is a separate cost.  Alyssum participates in the Indiana School Choice Scholarship Program and accepts vouchers from the state for eligible K-6 families. We encourage you to start a conversation with us about how we can help you meet your goal for a Montessori education for your child. Please don’t let finances keep you from considering Alyssum as an option
