Events / Visits

We invite you to come visit, see our campus and classrooms, meet the faculty and staff and get a feel for our school. Whether you schedule a tour and visit on a morning that works for you or attend an Open House, we hope you will get a feel for what makes our school unique and learn more about the Montessori method of teaching and learning.

Daily Tours and Observations
Parents interested in the school may schedule a tour. Visits are scheduled in the morning at 9 or 10 a.m., Monday through Friday and take roughly an hour. For your first visit it is best to leave your child at home so that you will have ample time to observe, ask questions, meet with the Head of School and the Admissions Director.

Call us at 802.257.0500 to schedule a tour and classroom observation. Applications are accepted year round. The best time to view the school is while classes are in session as it offers an important opportunity to observe the teacher-student relationships and the Montessori classroom in action. Choosing the right school is an important decision and the tour is an essential part of this process.

Open House Schedule in December and January

9am –  Welcome
9:15 – Tour and observations
10 -10:30 –  meet with program director for discussion and Q&A

Reservations are not necessary for Open Houses, but please be sure to sign in when you arrive. We welcome parents interested in the school, for their toddlers through middle school (students interested in middle school may also attend the open house). Because tours include visits to classrooms in session please do not bring children to the tours or open house. Students visits are a part of the admissions application.

Admissions

We maintain a strong applicant pool for all grade levels throughout the year. When a space becomes available, applicants who have completed the admissions process will be considered for that opening. We work to enroll each program with a balanced mix of ages, gender and learning styles. Families are encouraged to apply if they are interested. Applications are accepted throughout the school year.

Please contact Lauren Campbell at 802.257.0500 ext *101 or send an email to
lcampbell@hilltopmontessori.org to inquire about the school or schedule a tour.

Open House Events are scheduled in December and January
Our Open Houses are both friendly and informative. Tours and classroom observations begin promptly at 9:00 a.m. Teachers from every level will also meet with parent groups to discuss and answer their questions. And lastly, and current parents will enjoy this, some of our students will be here to take questions from parents about their experience at Hilltop.
