"We are loving our experience and the community at Butler. Our children are so happy, we never want to leave!"
~ Current Parent, 2021–22 Parent Survey
Siblings of currently enrolled students, as well as children with a previous Montessori background, are given priority to the limited number of spaces we have in our classrooms. Part of what makes this model so successful is the long-term process of education and growth that Montessori is famous for. We have a commitment to our community to ensure its success by doing everything we can to create a diverse and stable environment.

Acceptance and Enrollment
Following the parents’ admissions interview and the child’s visit, you will be contacted once a decision is made. This process can take up to two weeks.
If your child has been offered acceptance, you will receive an email with a link to the parent portal. Once you are in the parent portal you will follow the directions to complete the enrollment contract.
Once we receive your nonrefundable $1,000 enrollment deposit your child's space will be secured.
Contracts received after the specified date will be accepted as long as there is still space available.
Re-Enrollment and Deposits
Each subsequent year, your child(ren) will be automatically re-enrolled.
If you do not wish to re-enroll, you must notify the school in writing by March 1st, of the current school year, for your deposit to be returned; otherwise, your deposit is non-refundable.
Enrollment deposits will be returned in May of the last year that your child is enrolled in Butler Montessori.
