One test of the correctness of educational procedure is the happiness of the child.

Admissions Policy

Thank you for considering Montessori Foundations of Chicago for your child’s education.  The admissions procedure is designed to give parents an opportunity to learn about the school, its philosophy and policies, and to meet our staff.  Plus, it is an opportunity to determine whether we are able to meet the needs and expectations of the parents.   It also gives families who are new to Montessori an excellent introduction to the philosophy and methods of a Montessori education in general.  MFC admits students without regard to race, color, religion or national origins.  Our goal is to enroll families who will both benefit from and contribute to what the school has to offer.

We are an all year program and accept applications on a rolling admissions basis.  However, in order not to disturb the dynamic of the classroom, we enroll new children only three times a year: September, January and June.  Due to limited space, we suggest that families begin the application process at least four months prior to the anticipated start date.
