Casa dei Bambini Montessori is now accepting applications for children 2 to 6 years old. Casa dei Bambini admits children regardless of race, religion, color, nationality, or ethnic origin. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, nationality, or ethnic origin in the implementation of any of our policies, programs and procedures. We accept applications year-round.
These are the steps to take to learn more about our school and the application process:
1. Schedule a Tour. Simply call our office at 773-283-7474 or send us an email at to make an appointment to tour our facility and meet our dedicated
teachers. A tour is the perfect opportunity to see the classrooms, to learn about the Montessori approach to education, and to ask questions. You are welcome to come visit by yourself or to tour with your child. If your child cannot attend the initial tour, we invite you to return for a visit with your child. At the end of the tour, an application packet with additional information about our school will be provided for your review.
2. Complete the Application for Admission form. The application form is the first step in the enrollment process. It must be completed and submitted along with the application fee. Once an application is received, it is reviewed by our administration. You will be notified within a week of your acceptance. If our classes are full, your application will be put on a waiting list in the order of the date and time of its submission.
3. Sign the Enrollment Contract. Upon acceptance of the application, parents are provided with an Enrollment packet, which includes the Enrollment Contract and other required forms to be completed. The Enrollment Contract is an agreement between Casa dei Bambini Montessori of Mayfair and the parent, ensuring enrollment and placement of the child in one of our programs. The completion of this contract, other mandatory forms, and the enrollment deposit must be submitted to the office before the child's first day of school.
4. Orientation meeting with the Teacher. Parents and new students will be given an opportunity to spend time in the classroom and with their teacher prior to the first day of school. This meeting is meant to answer any additional questions and to help the student feel comfortable in a classroom setting. In the Pre-Primary 2 to 3 year old program, a phase-in period will take place during the first week of school. Further details of this phase-in period and its schedule will be provided at the orientation meeting.
