Preschool Enrollment 


Current Enrollment Status

We are currently running a waitlist for preschool for the 2020-2021

school year. 


Complete the preschool application below be added to

the waitlist.


Thank you for your interest in the Children’s House Preschool program at St. Vrain Community Montessori School.


Applications are considered based on the order in which they are received, as well as the child’s readiness to attend school.


Applicants for preschool positions for the 2019-2020 school year must be at least 3 years old upon enrollment. Applicants are strongly encouraged to be potty-trained, with the ability to go to the restroom independently. Children must be able to express their needs and ideas to adults, as well as take directions from adults.


If a child who turns 3 years old after October 1st submits an Intent-to-Enroll, a spot may be awarded.  This will be considered a pre-3 year-old year for the student.


Preschool Enrollment Process

Interested families who do not currently have a student enrolled at SVCMS are strongly encouraged to familiarize themselves with Montessori education and are required to attend a tour, or attend an informational meeting, or meet with the Head of School or Registrar. Interested families follow these steps to enroll their children:

  • Parents/legal guardians may submit an enrollment form on the SVCMS website. The enrollment form becomes available each year on the first business day of December. All Children’s House applications will be time-stamped according to receipt by the SVCMS Registrar. A $50 Application Fee completes the application.

  • After receipt of a completed application, the school will contact the family to a preschool readiness visit in one of our Montessori Children's House classrooms.  Alternatively the child being enrolled in the school may also participate in an informal group observation.

  • The child’s readiness to attend school will be taken into account when available positions are offered. 

  • As positions become available in the Children’s House, applications will be considered in the following order:

  1. Students presently enrolled in SVCMS Children’s House.  Parents must affirm their desire to re-enroll their student for the following school year by the date published.

  2. Siblings of children already enrolled in either SVCMS (K to 8th grade) or in the SVCMS Children’s House.  Any sibling offered a position in the Children’s House program must enroll or forfeit their position within five (5) business days for the school year offered.  If a sibling position is forfeited, a student may re-enroll under the general enrollment process. Preschool Applications must be received during Enrollment Window #1 (December 1st-January 15th) to receive sibling priority. 

  3. Children of SVCMS staff, consideration may be given to full-time staff.

  4. Children of current or former SVCMS Board members who completed at least one term, based on first come, first served.

  5. All St. Vrain Valley School District (SVVSD) residents.

  6. All non-SVVSD residents.

Notification of acceptance to the SVCMS preschool program will be in writing, and applicants will have five (5) days to complete an enrollment packet to secure a position in the preschool.  A 10% non-refundable deposit of tuition will be due mid-February and/or on the due date of the enrollment packet. Another 10% of tuition will due by May 15. The remainder of the 80% due can be paid in ten monthly installments from August to May.
