Enrollment

The Wellfleet Montessori Preschool program serves children 2.9 to 5 years old. It runs three days a week, with an option to add a fourth day.

Three-Day Program

Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday
from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Four-Day Program

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

In keeping with the ideals of the Montessori philosophy, all children entering kindergarten the following year are encouraged to enroll in the four-day program to assimilate to longer school weeks.

A minimum enrollment of five students is required to hold Monday classes.

Early-Morning Drop-Off

To accommodate busy parents, students may be brought to school
as early as 8 a.m. with advanced notice—at no additional cost.

The Wellfleet Montessori Preschool guidelines require the class-selection process to include the following principles and priorities:

  • Spaces are filled on a first come, first served basis. The school reserves the right to use a lottery system to select eligible applicants after all priority conditions are fulfilled.

  • Children and families are not discriminated against based on their race, religion, income, cultural heritage, political beliefs, marital status, sexual orientation, or disability. Additionally, a child’s toileting ability does not impact enrollment.

  • At the beginning of the school year, all children must present a signed form from a physician stating the child has received a complete physical exam within one year prior to admission. Up-to-date records of all immunizations and lead screenings are required, or in the case of religious conflict or medical reaction, a written waiver must be secured.
