All of our classes are full for the 2018-2019 school year. However, if you are interested in enrolling your child please give us a call and we will schedule a tour and answer your questions. We do keep waiting lists so don’t get too discouraged. Our military town keeps things moving… quite literally!
Annual tuition for the 2018-2019 school year will be $2,900. Tuition is divided into 10 equal monthly payments of $290. For this reason, tuition will be the same regardless of how many school days are in a particular month. This also applies if you leave for a family vacation. Obviously, we cannot fill your child’s spot for the few weeks that you are gone and we know that you understand that our budget remains the same!
Tuition is done through our secure automatic withdrawal system on the first school day of each new month. If alternative arrangements need to be made, please contact Diana at Diana@CKMontessori.com. A fee of $15 will be charged for any NSF transactions.

A one-time deposit of $100 is charged at the time of registration. This deposit is a ‘place holder’ and will stay on your account as long as one of your children is registered at Central Kitsap Montessori. This deposit will be credited to your tuition account during your youngest child’s last month of attendance provided your child completes the school year. Exceptions will be made for military families on a case by case basis.

We always open enrollment for the following school year in January. In other words, if you have a child who will be 3 by September of 2019, call us in January of 2019 for the best chance at getting your first choice class for your child.
(If you’ve heard that we have full enrollment please don’t let that discourage you. Since we are a military town, things do change so please call us if you are interested in being put on our waiting list. We stay on top of our class lists and will let you know if we get a space for your child. The sooner you call the better!)
Our Montessori classroom is designed for the 3 – 6 year old. We will enroll your child if s/he will be turning 3 by the end of October. (Please note, the CK School District cutoff date is 8/31 so if your child has a birthday in September or October s/he may have an “extra” year of preschool.) If you enroll your child in the middle of the school year, s/he must be at least 3 years old. Children that are outside of this age range are usually not successful for a variety of reasons. It’s in everyone’s best interest to avoid a negative school experience!

Please call the school to set up a tour. We prefer that you come during school hours so that you can watch the children ‘working’. Our tour times are usually Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays at either 10:00 or 1:00. You are most welcome to bring your preschooler along. If you also have a 1-2.5 year old, please know that it can be difficult to keep him/her out of the classroom materials – they want to touch everything! This can be distracting for you and for the teachers and students. If at all possible, leave this child with a grandparent or another care giver! Babies that can be held are fine.
