PHILOSOPHY AND POLICIES
The essence of the Montessori philosophy is to create an environment that fosters and serves each child individually. Country Day Montessori appreciates differences among students, and we believe that differences contribute to an enriching environment for all.
The school works to build classroom communities that best meet the need of all children. The admissions and enrollment process helps the school and your family to determine whether the Country Day Montessori learning environment is appropriate for your child’s needs.
Country Day Montessori School of Raleigh admits students and parents of any race, gender, color, religious affiliation, national or ethnic origin, or sexual orientation. We do not discriminate in the administration of our school policies or programs.
Children entering our infant program must be at least 6 weeks old; our Montessori Toddler programs begin at 12 months through 2 years; our Children’s House Program begins at age 3 years through 6 years. Admissions always begins with a private tour and meeting with our Head of School. At this time, you will be able to visit a classroom, see our program in action, as well as learn more about the Montessori Method of education and learning. This is also an opportunity to have your initial questions addressed and answered. During the initial visit, an information packet will be provided that outlines the special Country Day Montessori School approach and includes the forms necessary for the child(ren) to be considered for enrollment.
Please Note: filling out these forms from the website does not constitute acceptance and/or enrollment into the school. An official offer will be made once the Admissions and Enrollment processes have been completed.
To begin the Admissions Process and to schedule your private tour, please contact us by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone: 919-851-4054 and ask for Georgiana Nderitu.
