Montessori for Flint
Thanks to those who visited the Montessori open house at Durant-Tuuri-Mott Elementary on March 27, 2018. We hope the event provided an informative introduction to the program that is helpful for you as you think about your family's educational choices in the coming year.
Thanks as well to all the current students, teachers, and families who helped create the experience.
What follows are several updates/reminders regarding programming for the coming school year. If you have additional questions, please contact Montessori for Flint Parent Liaison, Elizabeth Jordan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Current Elementary Students
If your child is currently enrolled in the elementary Montessori program this school year (2017-18) and you plan to continue, you do not have to do anything. (If you do not plan to continue, please inform Pam Mosher by emailing email@example.com by April 30 so we can release your spot to another family.)
New Elementary Students (including current Montessori pre-K students)
To be considered for the elementary program, which will serve early 5/kindergarten through 3rd grade next year, you must turn in an application to the Flint Community Schools administration building by May 15. For the Early 5/kindergarten class, students must be 5 years old by December 1, 2018. If you have questions, you can call the enrollment office at 810-767-6158. The application is available for download on the Montesori for Flint website: https://www.flintmontessori.org.
New Pre-K Students
The first step is to pre-register for the Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP) by calling (810) 591-KIDS or visiting https://michiganpreschool.org/. Be sure to select Flint Community Schools- Durant Tuuri Mott Montessori as your preferred program. Once you do, please also call the Flint early childhood office at 810-767-8018. Ms. Wilson or Ms. Shellman can help walk you through the rest of the process. Because the pre-K enrollment process has several steps, we have developed a guide for families which can be emailed, upon request.
The Montessori for Flint website has additional resources and information available to help you. Thank you for your interest in the Flint Montessori program.
