Admissions and Enrollment


Welcome! ToTH Montessori is an authentic Montessori early learning experience for children ages 18 months to 6 years. We offer children beautifully prepared, mixed-age classroom environments where the focus is on the child’s cognitive, physical, social, and emotional development. We invite you to explore our Toddler and Primary (3-6) program pages to learn more about our classrooms, curriculum, and schedules. All of our classrooms are led by caring and trained guides who have earned or are purpusing MACTE-endosed teaching certifications.

While the pandemic has made it difficult for us to gather as often as we would like, our parent community is engaged and dynamic. We offer many ways to become involved with the school, including volunteering as a class parent, sharing a talent or interest with our students, or planning social activities. ToTH is a small, neighborhood school, and we pride ourselves on our close connections with the surrounding communites of Navy Yard and Capitol Hill. ToTH Montessori has been voted “Best Preschool in DC” for the past six years by Washington City Paper readers.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, we are currently unable to offer in-person tours or open houses to prospective families. However, we encourage families to watch our virtual classroom tours, and to contact our Admissions Director, Ila Furman, who can provide 30-45 minute observation videos from each of our programs, and answer any questions you may have. To see each of our classrooms in action throughout the year, follow us on Instagram.

The 2022-23 school year will begin on August 29, 2022 and will end on July 27, 2023, for a total of 202 school days. To view the 2022-2023 school calendar, click here.
