THE WAITLIST JOURNEY...
Every child is a wonder, the opening paragraph of a classic adventure novel, the first line of a favorite song, memorable, unique, haunting. If we had our way, the size of our House would expand to welcome as many explorers as came through our door, a happy exception to the laws of physics.
As it is, though, our magical corner of the world is clearly defined in time and space. When enrollment fills for a given year, we advise our inquiring families accordingly. If you're one of them, you have a number of options, including applying to our waitlist for that year. Maria's House enrollment applications are considered in the order that they're received. Waitlist applications are treated in exactly the same way. If something changes with one our enrolled families, we notify our waitlist candidates by date of application, well aware that many of them will have by necessity found an alternative for their child. When we arrive at a family with interest, we continue the conversation, gently determining whether our House will be a suitable match for their child. The space is theirs until we come to a mutual decision. If yes, the space closes. If no, we contact the next family in our queue. It's a slow, deliberate process, but one that we approach with great respect.
As of now, our Academic Year programs for 2022-23 are at waitlist. We're accepting applications for 2023 and beyond. If you have questions about our program, please visit the Inquire section of our website or email our office at Inquiries@MariasHouseMontessori.com. We're always happy to speak with you.
