Enroll In Summer Camps Today!

Nature, Art & Music Camps


It’s that time of year…The Garden classrooms (toddler & Pre-K) are now full and we are currently on a waiting list for the 2018-19 school year. If you are interested in enrolling your child at The Garden, we encourage you to submit an application as soon as possible to reserve his/her name on the waiting list (which is still very short!).

But, never fear! There is still hope…there is almost always movement on the waiting list over the summer. We serve many military families and oftentimes relocations will happen unexpectedly over the summer, opening up spaces for families on the waiting list. While we can’t guarantee a spot, we can assure you that your child will remain on the waiting list until one becomes available (or until you decide to remove his/her name). You DO NOT need to submit a new application every year, we offer rolling admissions, so even if we can’t place your child this year, s/he will still be at the top of the list for the next year.

Our group tours for the school year have now ended, individual tours will be offered once we have confirmed placement for your child. Group tours will begin again in the fall of 2018, a schedule is forthcoming.

Group Tours Available 2017-18

JOIN US TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT OUR SCHOOL!

Are you interested in learning more about The Garden and seeing first-hand how Montessori works? Please sign up to join us for one of our group tours. You will be able to meet with administrators from The Garden and Moore Montessori Community School to find out all about how your child will bloom in this environment. We will offer a parent education session to give you an overview of The Montessori Method along with the specifics of our program. You will then get to sit quietly in the classroom and see how the children move about quietly and independently, choosing and completing their own work; you’ll observe how teachers prepare and manage their classrooms uniquely so that each child gets an individualized and balanced education. It is truly amazing and we want you to see it for yourself! You can sign-up for one of our group tours online HERE. We can’t wait to share with you the beauty of Montessori.
