Application & Enrollment Forms

Note: We have been open since October 2014. Availability is now limited, but we do keep a waiting list, and spaces sometimes open up. Best to contact us directly for information.

Parents interested in applying for their child's admission to Heart and Hands Montessori must first tour the school and observe the classroom. Then parents fill out an application form and submit the form with a non-refundable fee to the school office. Parents and the Director agree on a probable start date and parents submit the signed contract and enrollment fee. Before starting, each child must have the following documents in his or her file (forms downloadable below):
1. Application form (get form below) and receipt of application fee (see rate below, non-refundable but good for two years).
2. Enrollment fee that guarantees the agreed-upon starting date (non-refundable and equal to amount of one month's tuition; this is credited towards the first month).
3. Enrollment contract, signed.
4. Medical report and immunization documents.
5. Emergency medical consent form.
6. Emergency transportation form.
7. Authorization list of people able to pick up the child from the center.
8. Photography permission and release (optional).
9. Other forms: sunscreen permission.

Enrollment Fee: Equal to one-month's tuition (non-refundable, good for one year). The agreed-upon starting date is not guaranteed until this fee is paid. It is then credited to pay for the first month.


We bill at the end of each month for the following month's tuition. Each invoice shows what we have billed for, the time period involved, and payments to date.

We bill by the month for the number of days per week that your child is signed up. Sometimes parents ask the director for one or more extra days. If space is available such requests will be honored and extra-day rates are added to the invoice.

Please understand that we cannot adjust invoices if illness, holiday, weather, family trips or other such reasons prevent your child from attending.

For children starting mid-month or withdrawing mid-month (having given the required notice), pro-rated credits are applied.

Scholarship Inquiries

We are unable to offer scholarships at this time. Sometimes it is possible to accept Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) children. You can get Boulder County info here. Please understand that even if you qualify for CCAP we may not be in a position to accept you.
