Maria Montessori with a student

"The greatest of the human personality begins at the hour of birth, so education must start from birth."

"The education of a very small child does not aim at preparing him for school but for life."

"Education is not something which a teacher does, but it is a natural process which develops spontaneously in human beings. The first thing a child’s education demands is the provision of an environment in which he can develop the powers given him by nature."

"The secret of good teaching is to regard the child’s intelligence as a fertile field in which seeds may be sown, to grow under the heat of flaming imagination."

- Maria Montessori

Admission Information

Enrollment is open to children between the ages of 2 and 6 years who are self-sufficient in the bathroom. The first step is to schedule a tour.

After touring the school and upon receipt of the registration form and fee, another visit with your child will be arranged to determine general readiness for the classroom environment and to determine classroom placement. This visit will also include discussion regarding the schools policies, home-school interaction and information about completing all necessary school and state required paper work for your child's file.

The school year begins the day after Labor Day and continues through the beginning of June. Although classes begin in September, new students may be enrolled at any time during the school year if space is available. Summer camp is a separate session.


Sunrise Montessori offers a number of family friendly options for enrollment.

Half Day Preschool Program:
The half day preschool program (both the AM and PM program) offers the child a complete Montessori curriculum. The child will spend approximately 1.75 hours working in self-directed activities, 30 minutes in large circle activities and 30 minutes in outdoor play. This program, in addition to offering the child a complete Montessori curriculum, provides opportunities to further develop the child's intellectual faculties. The child is exposed to an individualized reading and a mathematics program. In conjunction with the phonic and whole language reading approach, the child will be introduced to mathematical skills; introduction to the decimal number system and the processes of addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions etc. to reach their utmost potential. We introduce the children to different languages; for instance Spanish, German, and/or American Sign Language (ASL).

Daycare Programs:
The full day program incorporates the half day program in the morning as well as another Montessori work time in the afternoon or nap, depending on the needs of your child. At the time of enrollment daycare hours can be added in the morning or afternoon.

Summer Camp:
During the summer months, a Montessori program emphasizing the creative arts, large motor activities and themed units of study are available in order to give the child more continuity in his/her learning.

Beyond Kindergarten:
If you are looking for a Montessori education for your elemenatary-aged child, we recommend American Montessori Elementary located nearby in Roseville.
