The best way to understand how the Montessori philosophy works is to have a tour, walk through the classrooms and see how the educational materials are specifically designed for the age group they serve. Observing our Montessori trained teachers in action is a truly delightful experience! We welcome guests and look forward to meeting you soon. Then if you think we are a match for your child, follow the steps for admissions!

Montessori by the Sea offers need-based financial aid grants. We use a third party assessment organization (TADS) to process our financial aid applications. Based on the financial information you supply, TADS provides an estimated amount your family can contribute to educational expenses, which helps our school make fair and objective financial aid decisions.

Montessori by the Sea selects students on a rolling admissions basis. We give first priority to our current students and their siblings before opening up spaces to new families. Current families have until the second week of February to re-register.  New family applications will be handled and processed on a first come-first serve basis.
