Tuition, Required Forms, and a 'Contact Us' window, are available on this page.

We have begun accepting application and offering in-person tours for 2022-2023.  Download our application (see button at right), or, email us at admissions@bethesdamontessori.com to request one.  A $75 non-refundable application fee is due when you submit your application.

 

We are currently conducting individual in-person tours. Tours are by appointment, and are usually held at 9:45am to ensure that visitors can observe our Montessori students at work with the materials.

We accept a total of 80 students each year. Our lead teachers, either AMI trained (Association Montessori Internationale) or AMS trained (American Montessori Society), both of which require a two year masters degree program, have over 25 years of experience! The remainder of our staff has been here an average of 15 years (this includes our assistants), so you can expect a wonderful, caring group of instructors who love children.  All staff are fully vaccinated and we operated in person, five days a week, since the beginning of the pandemic September 2020 through today!

Remember, children must turn 3 prior to the first day of school of their year of enrollment and be fully potty trained (fully trained means the child may not wear diapers, and must be able use the facilities on their own, without assistance from an adult).  You may review tuition rates and required documents for enrollment below.  Thank you!
