ENROLLMENT PROCESS

Thank you so much for your interest in Salado Montessori!
1. TOURS

Adult Tour

To begin your enrollment process, schedule a tour of Salado Montessori.  Tours are available Thursdays during office hours.  This is a time for Parents/Guardians to see the facilities, ask questions, and discuss enrollment options. 

You will be invited to fill out an Enrollment Application at this time.  The Enrollment Application may be downloaded on our Forms page or picked up in person during your visit.  Please submit one form per child and include the non-refundable $100 application fee with each form

Child Tour

The child tour is an opportunity for your prospective student to see the classroom. Ms. Webb, Director of Salado Montessori, will assess your child's readiness to join our community by working with the prospective student in the classroom and discuss your enrollment options.   


The enrollment application, $100 application fee, and child tour secures your child's enrollment or spot on the waiting list.

2. OBSERVE

Prospective parents are strongly encouraged to observe the classroom prior to their child joining the class.

3. Complete ENROLLMENT PAPERWORK

Once your Enrollment Application* has been received and your child has been accepted, you will be invited to complete the enrollment paperwork which includes:

·         Parent Commitment Agreement

·         Health & Human Resources Admissions Information (including immunization history)

·         Vision and Hearing (4, 5, and 6 year olds)

·         Parent Volunteer Program Agreement

·         Food Allergy & Emergency Plan (if applicable)

·         TEA Ethnicity & Race Data (requested, not required)

·         Use of Images Permission

*The Enrollment Application must be accompanied by the $500 New Family Fee.

4. New Student Parent/Teacher CONFERENCE

Parents only will meet privately with our Lead Guide for more information about classroom procedures, expectations, and objectives. Most often, New Student Parent/ Teacher conferences are scheduled in August or before the student joins the class.

5. MEET THE TEACHER

This is a one-on-one time for the student and the Lead Guide.  The Lead Guide will show the child around the classroom and give a few lessons to help familiarize the child with some of the materials. Giving these lessons before school begins helps prepare the child for their first day of school. Most often, Meet the Teacher meetings for the new students are scheduled in August or before the student joins the class.
