1) TAKE A VIRTUAL TOUR OF STERLING'S CHILDREN'S HOUSE
Our virtual tour has three components: an informational video created by the American Montessori Society; a Video Tour of a Children's House classroom at Sterling; and a recording of an Informational Session.
It is important for prospective parents to understand Children's House program prior to turning in an application for the preschool program. Topics of these include the Montessori philosophy and approach, readiness expectations of the child and why Pre-K3, Pre-K4 and Kindergarteners are together in a classroom.

4) WAITING POOL
Applicants are placed in a waiting pool, not a waiting list. If and when we have a seat to offer, we will select a student from the waiting pool based on the following criteria: staff & sibling preference, family previously enrolled at Sterling, previous Montessori experience (we require additional information as to
where Montessori experience was acquired), and needs of the classroom(s).
5) OFFER OF ENROLLMENT
Once an offer of enrollment is extended, families will have 3 days to notify Sterling of your acceptance. All required registration paperwork, contract and fees must be submitted to Sterling within 10 days of accepting our offer.
Admission is offered on a rolling basis. Students are accepted when spaces become available throughout the current academic year.
