Our school is open all year, with a regular 10-month session September through June roughly following the Seattle Public Schools district calendar.

We offer year-long enrollment if there are openings. There is a $150 enrollment fee which applies at the time of enrollment in order to hold your spot. In case of waitlists, we will take into account trying to have a diverse and balanced group of children, with returning families and siblings having priority.


Our recommended starting age is somewhere in the 2.5 - 3 year old range - once they are able to change their clothes with assistance and can initiate toiletting on their own, as we do not change diapers and expect children to have the body awareness needed to use the toilet independently.

For older children, familiarity with Montessori education is great to have but not required.

We welcome children through Kindergarten age - we love our older students who are able to be great role models for the younger children and bloom into capable and empathetic leaders.


Please email hello@verandamontessori.com or call (206) 782 - 5250 with any questions and to schedule an observation. Families are required to do an in person visit to the school before proceeding to enrollment.

2023 - 2024

We have open spots for the current school year for a mid-November start date.

Please get in touch about scheduling a school visit if you are interested.

2024 - 2025 information

Enrollment is not yet open, but we are already scheduling interested family visits!

We will hold an open house event in February (date TBD).

Returning families, siblings, and alumnae families have priority for enrollment. Other children will be considered looking for balance in our classroom - ages, genders, and other diversity factors.

How to enroll

You must complete the enrollment form and send the enrollment fee. You will recieve a link to the enrollment form after your visit - if you have not gotten it, please write to hello@verandamontessori.com asking for it.

Once we have recieved your form submission and payment you will recieve an email confirmation and instructions for any next steps.

Should we be at capacity, your enrollment fee will be refunded and you will be placed on our waitlist. When a spot opens up, this will be communicated by email along with instructions needed in order to secure said spot.


We are starting a referal program! If a current Veranda family sent you our way, please let us know who it was so that you can both get credited.
