At Seneca Village Montessori, we work closely with families to ensure that our school is a good match for each applicant and their family. We look for children and parents of diverse talents, and experiences who will benefit from a cooperative, nurturing environment where students are challenged to reach their full potential.

When we admit a new student to SVMS, we are not simply bringing him into the school community. We are bringing the child, his parents, siblings, and extended family into our village. In making admissions decisions we normally give strong preference to families who share common values and goals with the school, and who, after careful consideration and exploration, have concluded that our school is something that they want very much for their children. These families are passionate about our mission.

Admission Decisions

Seneca Village Montessori School is pleased to accept applications and offer admission decisions on a rolling basis. If we are fully enrolled, your application will be added to our waiting list. As space becomes available, the school will notify parents and proceed to the next step of the enrollment process.

Families are required to make a payment of:  1) A $300 nonrefundable registration fee and 2)  A tuition deposit in the amount of  one month’s full tuition. The tuition deposit will be waived for families that qualify for childcare subsidy programs. No child is considered enrolled in the school until the deposits, contracts and any required records are received. Agreement is made to pay tuition in full using one of three payment choices described in the enrollment contract. Families agree to abide by all Seneca Village Montessori School policies and procedures, as outlined in the Parent Handbook and Enrollment Contract.

Application Fee

There is a nonrefundable $50 application fee. ($25 for Voucher programs) This fee must be paid in order for your application to be processed.

Please note, submitting an application does not guarantee admission to a Seneca Village. If there is no space available, you will be placed on a waiting list and will be contacted when a spot opens. If admissions is granted, the registration fee will be required to secure acceptance. If you obtain childcare elsewhere and do not wish to remain on the Seneca Village waiting list, please contact to have your name removed.

Equality and Diversity Policy::

We value diversity among our students. We do not discriminate in our enrollment policies on the basis of race, color, gender, religion, sexual orientation, national or ethnic origin.
