Welcome to Orion Montessori School and your interest in our school. As a passionate Montessorian, advocate of early childhood education, and now the CEO/Founder of Orion Montessori School, I am especially pleased and delighted to introduce you to our school’s community and environment.
The admissions procedure is designed to give parents an opportunity to learn about our school, its philosophy and policies, and to meet our administration and faculty. It also gives us an opportunity to determine whether we are able to meet the needs and expectations of the parents and their respective families. Our goal is to enroll families who will both benefit from and contribute to what the school has to offer.
Orion Montessori School admits students without regard to race, color, religion, or national origin.
Our admission process and registration entails a private tour of our school as the first step, followed by submission of application to be considered for review and enrollment. The admission criteria is on a first-come-first-serve basis. Through the admissions process, we strive to begin the association of creating a strong, long-lasting, and collaborative connection between each new child and their family, and Orion Montessori School.
I look forward to personally introducing you to the school, help you make a truly informed decision about your child’s education, and potentially welcoming you as a part of the OMS community.
Steps to Enroll your Child

Step 3: If you are interested to pursue enrollment with us, you will be given a tour packet with an application. Additionally, you will be informed of the waitlist and guaranteed enrollment categories.
Step 4: Fill out the application and email it to us, to either be placed on a waitlist or reserve a guaranteed spot. All our enrollment is on a first-come-first-serve basis and spot availability.
Step 5: Upon acceptance, you will be required to pay the non-refundable initial deposit to either be placed on waitlist or reserve a guaranteed spot at OMS.
Our office is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 AM to 5:30 PM. Parents are welcome to call (408) 247-7474; email email@example.com ; or click here to schedule a date and time for a private tour of our campuses. All of our parent tours are private in order to maintain the highest level of security and confidentiality of information that is exchanged. No group tours. One of our Directors will personally coordinate with each family to schedule a mutually convenient date and time of visit Orion Montessori School.
Additionally, you are welcome to reach the CEO/Founder of OMS, Shriee Srinivas at firstname.lastname@example.org anytime directly and/or copy her in your emails with questions, tour requests, and concerns.
Post initial tours, parents are welcome to schedule a 20-30 minute observation session, if necessary, to see the children at work. Observation sessions are typically scheduled between Tuesdays and Thursdays by appointment only, based on the respective classrooms’ schedule and availability, between 9:30A.M. to 11A.M. Tours are regularly scheduled throughout the year between Tuesdays and Thursdays. We do not offer tour appointments on Mondays and Fridays, unless the need arises from a non-local family.
Prospective parents are encouraged to attend the tour without their children during the initial visit, so they are able to dedicate uninterrupted time and attention and briefly all the program levels at OMS-from the Toddler Community through Elementary. You will have an opportunity to see the children at work at each level, to hear more about the school’s history and philosophy, and get your questions answered.
Orion Montessori School balances classrooms as much as possible by age and gender. Except for the Toddler Community, which currently serves children from 2 years through 3 years, all other programs at OMS are structured in three-year age spans as traditional and authentic mixed age group Montessori classrooms. Our Primary program is for 3 to 6-year old children. The Elementary serves 6 to 12-year old children (grades 1 to 6).
The infant community for 3 months to 18 months and Middle School programs for 12 to 15-year old children (grades 7 to 9) are coming soon.
