Prior to registering at Bright Star Montessori School, the families will receive an email with an invitation for a 15 minutes tour. This is an opportunity to introduce the child and ask questions about the program. Once the spot is confirmed, the parents will receive the enrollment package.
Our Morning and Afternoon Programs are offered to children 2 1/2 – 5 years old. It is a half day program, with morning 8:45 am – 11:30 am or afternoon 12:30 pm – 3:15 pm sessions. As space is limited to 24 children per class, and we usually have a waiting list, we encourage families to apply six months prior to their child’s intended enrollment date.
Extended Day Program (Kindergarten) is for children 4 – 6 years old and runs from 8:45 am – 3:15 pm. As this is a very popular program, with space for only 12 children, we almost always have a waiting list. Please call well in advance of the desired enrollment date.
Before and After–School Program is available from 8:00 am – 8:45 am and from 3:15 pm – 5:00 pm. It is offered only to those children, who are already enrolled in our Extended Day Program.
Montessori Daycare Program is for children 2 1/2 – 5 years old and runs from 8:00 am – 5:30 pm. Please call at least one year prior to the intended enrollment date. Of all the programs we offer, this one usually has the longest waiting list.
