How to Apply
Lexington Montessori School (LMS) enrolls children without regard to racial, religious, national, or ethnic background. Enrollment options include half-day (till 11:45) and full-day programs (2:45 p.m. or 5:30 p.m.) for toddlers (Fall 2014) starting at age 18 months to 3 years old. We also offer half-day (till 11:45) and full-day programs with the option of after school care (till 5:30 p.m.) for preschool children ages 3 yr old to 5 yr old. Our kindergarten class is a full day program (till 2:45 p.m.) that has the option of after school care (till 5:30 p.m.) Lastly, our elementary program includes grades 1 through 6 and is a full day program (till 2:45 p.m.) that has the option of after school care (till 5:30p.m.) .
The morning work cycle begins at 8 a.m., with early dropoff available starting at 7:30 a.m. Optional afterschool care is available until 5:30 p.m. for children enrolled in any of the programs.
Selection is also based on factors such as the parent's intent to keep the child in our school through completion of the three-year primary program and/or the elementary program, and the interview conducted with the parents and the child.
Steps in the application process include completing and mailing the application (link provided below) to the school and calling LMS to arrange for a visit. During the visit to the school, both the parent(s) and child will be interviewed by LMS staff. Upon successful completion of the application and interview process, enrollment will be offered if there is a place available for the child. If a place is not available, the child will be placed on a waiting list; as openings occur they will be filled in order from the waiting list. Preference is given to siblings of current students or graduates and to transfers with previous Montessori experience.
