Montessori education is known for following the child, respecting his own pace of development while fostering his interests, and promoting independence, both within the structure of the classroom and out in the wider world. Juniper Early Learning Center is a vibrant, international community of learners, where children and adults can learn from each other, by teaching and by doing. We strive to create a respectful and peaceful environment where students can grow and be who they are. At Juniper Early Learning Center, we believe that each person- child, parent and staff, brings something unique and valuable to our community.
We invite you to visit our school, and spend time in our classrooms, to see how children interact with one another and with the adults who are their guides and teachers. See how responsibility and independence are fostered, how the child-appropriate environment makes it possible for children to do what they are capable of, and how adults follow the child's lead to meet his/her developmental needs. Come meet our faculty, learn more about our programs for children aged 18 months to 6 years, and for school aged children attending our After School Programs. Call our office to book a tour and see why children love being here. We look forward to meeting you!
To be considered for admission, families must complete the following steps:
- The School Visit: Parents observe a classroom (in or out of session) and have an informational tour of the Classroom and Teacher of the program that you are interested in. This will also include a brief time to speak with the staff.
- The Application: Completed applications, including registration package, student information forms, health information, emergency card, consent forms and a non-refundable yearly enrollment fee of $100.00 must be submitted to secure your child's space.
Please note: If your child is going to age out of their program throughout the school year, you must speak to the classroom teacher in the next program to secure a spot. This would apply to toddlers turning 3 or 5 year old's moving to kindergarten. While we will do our best to ensure a spot in the next age group, we cannot guarantee the same scheduled days or immediate availability. If you wish to pay a holding fee throughout the year to guarantee the spot, that can be arranged. Please inquire about this upon registration if your child will be changing programs throughout the year.
