admissions to Mater Amoris

Thank you for considering Mater Amoris Montessori School for your child’s education. We look forward to the opportunity to welcome your child and your family to our community.


Open Houses & Tours

We invite you to attend an open house or schedule a tour for a date that works for you. Visiting the school is the first step in our admissions process. Mater Amoris’ open house sessions give prospective families an opportunity to tour our campus and observe classrooms, as well as to meet and ask questions of the Head of School, Deborah Bricker, teachers, and members of our Parent Council.

Open houses are held the first Wednesday of each month from 9:00 to 10:30 a.m., beginning in October. Upcoming dates include:

October 3, 2018

November 7, 2018

December 5, 2018

January 9, 2019

February 6, 2019

March 6, 2019

April 3, 2019

May 1, 2019




If you are unable to attend one of the scheduled open house dates, please contact us to arrange for a convenient time for your family to visit Mater Amoris.



After submitting an application for enrollment, parents are interviewed and children visit the school prior to acceptance.

Acceptances are issued on a rolling basis and as space permits.

All children are enrolled provisionally for the first four weeks, after which the parents are given an opportunity to consult with the teacher about the child's reaction to the program and the school.

Children may enroll at Mater Amoris at the Primary level or as they graduate from a preschool environment and into our Junior Program. We welcome students at any time in their development as space permits and the program suits the family and the child.
