Admissions Process: 3 year-olds

Our Admissions Process takes place in two rounds. Most of our enrollment is filled in Round One, which concludes January 15. Round Two is open until May 15. However, we are usually full by this point and utilize Round Two as a Wait Pool.

If you are interested in enrolling your 3 year-old, the first step in our process is to fill out a Parent Interest Form. Once Parent Interest Forms are processed you will be notified of upcoming informational events held on campus. After these events, we will begin to schedule classroom observations, and meetings with administration. This is an important part of our process. We want you to have an opportunity to experience how our classrooms function and ensure that MSB is a good fit for your family.

The classroom observation is followed by a meeting with an administrator. This meeting is designed to address any questions, offer more insight into our program and present an application for admission.

Once the campus visit is completed, submit your application and fee to be added to the active waitpool.

We prefer applications be received by January 15 and no later than January 31. Acceptances will be made in mid-February.


MSB welcomes all prospective applicants and their families.

MSB is committed to a policy of equal opportunity for all persons and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, age, marital status, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, disability, religion, or physical characteristics in employment, educational programs and activities, financial aid, and admissions policies.

Admissions decisions are based on many factors including gender, age, and a comfortable fit within a Montessori environment as dictated by the balance of the existing multi-age class. We give priority consideration to siblings of enrolled students and to children of alumni families, faculty and staff.

MSB’s preschool program is recorded with the Child Care Division and is legally exempt from licensure.
