Admission Information

The VMS infant/toddler program was designed to provide the youngest children a nurturing environment where they are offered an opportunity to continue with familiar caregivers while forming loving, trusting relationships. This program has limited enrollment availability. Priority admittance is provided to families who intend to continue with our preschool program.

Montessori preschool education is based on a three-year cycle; therefore, families should plan for a child to attend our preschool program a minimum of two years.

Admission to VMS is based on class availability and determination by the parent(s)/guardian(s) and administration that the child is ready.  In the event that a space is not available, your family can be placed on our waiting list free of charge.

Vista Montessori School, Inc. is operated on a non-discriminatory basis, according to the equal treatment and access to services, without regard to race, color, religion, national origin or ancestry.
