Where are you located?
Meridian Montessori is located in the historic Mount Washington neighborhood of Cincinnati, Ohio.
What are your age requirements?
We accept children age 2.5 to 4 for our preschool prep program. Children must be actively engaged in toilet learning.
Is it necessary for my child to attend a preschool prep program?
Many families find that a regular program provides meaningful educational and social interactions which children may not be exposed to otherwise. Our homelike environment is mindfully designed to help ease the transition from home to school and engages children in meaningful learning without the typical distractions in a home environment. Additionally, in lieu of a waitlist, preschool prep families receive priority preschool registration.
What kind of parent participation do you expect?
We view your child’s education as a collaborative effort; thus, parent participation is encouraged and expected. We welcome parents in the learning environment on a more flexible basis during the preschool prep program as guides become part of your child’s trusted circle. When group snack is planned, we require families to bring snack on a rotating basis. We encourage you to help create continuity in your child’s development and to maximize your child’s learning experience by incorporating Montessori principles at home. To this end, we invite parents or caregivers to attend at least one parent education event per semester.
Can you help me set up a Montessori nursery, toddler or preschool room for my child at home?
We welcome the opportunity to help you incorporate Montessori into your home or life as a whole.
How much is tuition?
Tuition for the eight-week preschool prep program is $175. Please contact us for more information regarding the multi-sibling discount, as well as financial aid.
How do I know if Montessori is right for my child?
The preschool prep program is an excellent opportunity to learn more about the Montessori philosophy and our integrative approach. As a community of Montessorians, we welcome the opportunity to connect you with other families who have experienced the Montessori difference.
Do you offer a summer program?
Beginning Summer 2017, we will offer our eight-week preschool prep program during the months of June and July with summer break occurring the week of July 4th.
