Admissions

At Keystone we appreciate the importance of the decision to invest in your son or daughter's private education; therefore, we encourage prospective parents to visit us for an informal tour and discussion about what we can offer your child. Book A Tour

We also invite you to take advantage of our FREE WEEK TRIAL to see if your son or daughter adapts well to our unique learning environment. 

Follow up visits are recommended with all interested parties to discuss the possibility of your future with Keystone Montessori School.

Casa Program (3.8 years up to 6 years old)

 

1. Interested parents are asked to Book A Tour to observe the class with their children present so they can learn about the school and see their children partake in classroom activities. 

2. After the tour, the school will determine the best time for your child to begin their free one week trial. You will be notified of the available weeks and asked if you want to take advantage of the free trial offer at that time. 

3. Admission decisions are based on an evaluation of the child’s school visits and a discussion with the child’s parents to determine if the child would be comfortable in the program and whether the school can meet the individual child’s and parents’ needs.

4. Parents will be notified as to whether or not their child has been accepted into the program. 

 

5. The child will be placed on a six week probation period to ensure a good fit exists between the student and school.

NOTE: Spaces in the Casa fill quickly. It is a good idea to express your interest as early as possible to avoid being disappointed.
