Your family’s Montessori Journey starts here

We’re so happy that you’re interested in Montessori education and our school! For more than 50 years, Montessori Academy has provided London area families world-class Montessori education, and we continue to be one of the foremost accredited Montessori programs in Canada. 

Read on for more information on our Application Process. If at any time you have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the school. 

Image with text: APPLYING EARLY - We encourage interested families to apply for admissions at least one year ahead of when you want your child to start school, to ensure there is space available and to facilitate payment options. For our Toddler programs, students need to be 18 months or turning 18 months in the month they begin. All of our programs follow the school calendar year, and therefore students begin their programs in September. Applications may be submitted prior to attending the School Tour. Applications are placed in our wait pool in the order in which they are received.


As part of the application process, we invite you to attend a School Tour. Visit our School Tours page for more details.  


To apply, please complete our Online Application form. If there are any special requirements or circumstances regarding your application, please contact us prior to submitting your application.

First-time applicant families will need to create an account for our MA Parent Portal to login and complete the application. There is a $150 non-refundable fee to apply. Applications are accepted year round, and offers of admission for the upcoming school year are provided in March. 


If your child is applying at the Elementary level (age 6 – 14 years), and applicable space is available, the Principal will be in touch to arrange a classroom visit for your child and schedule a parent meeting.


Offers of Admission for new students are provided in March for the upcoming school year; or, if the application is received after March, as classroom capacity allows. 


Online Applications are added to our wait pool on a first-come, first-served basis. Applicants move up in priority in the wait pool as children are placed in classrooms. Once classrooms reach capacity, any new or existing applications will remain in the wait pool for one year. Full details on our wait pool policy, composition and access can be found in our Application and Enrolment Policy (PDF).


Re-enrolment for current students is available in February. All documents must be completed through the MA Parent Portal to secure your child’s space for the upcoming school year.
