Application Process

Thanks for your interest in the Montessori Children’s House of Hyde Park. We encourage you to make an appointment to visit our school during our enrollment period at the start of each year. Beginning the second week in January through the last week in March, we hold a prospective parent orientation meeting from 9 to 10:30 am. The visit begins with a discussion of the Montessori method, followed by a class visit, and a question and answer period with our Director of Education, Jayna Fazio and Administrative Director, Jill Poor. This meeting will give you a good overview of our school and enable you to determine if you would like to submit an application for your child to attend. Call (813)354-9511 for an appointment.

You may put your child on our wait list at anytime. Click here to view or print the application or waitlist application.
