Prospective families should consider visiting the school before submitting an application. We have weekly tours on Wednesdays at 10:00 a.m. These tours are for adults only and we have limited spaces, so we ask that you RSVP. We also have an Open House on Saturday, January 28 from 9:00 - 1:00. The whole family is invited, and you can see some sample Montessori lessons, tour the school, talk with both teachers and parents, and feed a goat a carrot. RSVPs to the Open House are not necessary, but they are appreciated.
If you know you are interested in enrolling your child, the next step is to submit an application. There is no cost to apply, and this secures your place on our wait list. We interview students whenever we have an opening. Most interviews for fall admission take place in late February/early March. We offer rolling admissions and, should a space become available mid-year, we will contact the next person on our wait list. To learn more about CRMS, join us for a tour and/or our Open House on Saturday, January 29.
Our tours are held Wednesdays at 10 a.m., October through April, and are for adults only. Space is limited.
Please review the calednar for an available tour date and call (425) 271-9614 or schedule online to reserve your spot.
