“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: one is roots. The other is wings.”



Thank you for taking time to learn more about our school! We are happy to share more information about our enrollment process with you and your family. Please see below the following steps to take to enroll your child at IMA:

1.  Private Tour or Prospective Parent Night
Come visit IMA to learn more about our Montessori Education. We’ll share the philosophy of education, our approach applied, programs we offer, and our internationally recognized accreditation. Kindly set aside an hour of time to learn more from our educators firsthand.  Please email us at info@imamontessori.org to reserve your space at a Prospective Parent Evening.

2.  Application
Complete our application to proceed with your interest in enrolling your child in our programs at IMA. Applications will be held only for the current school year. Applicants upon our waitlist will need to reapply for the upcoming school year.

3.  Observation
Schedule a day to personally visit our classroom environments. We love to host guests to see the children working in action. An observation consists of stepping into the classroom for a glimpse into the children’s environment. Please note these guidelines for your visit. Kindly set aside about an hour of time to view each of our classroom environments.

4.  Interview
Schedule an interview with us. We’d love to hear your observation insights and clarify any questions to solidify your family choosing IMA for your child’s education. Come prepared with any final inquiries you might have.

5.  Enrollment Deposit
Join in partnership with IMA educators as your child’s schooling unfolds. Join us to foster a love of learning for your little one. Applicants may send their child’s deposit to hold their spot.  The deposit is paid to ensure your child’s enrollment space and the money is returned to you at the start of your son/daughter’s Kindergarten year with us.
