Drop-off, Random days/hours, Pay-per-use program:

Routine preschool for children does not fit into schedule of life of many parents. For them we have a drop-off program. Also, if anyone ever needs extra hours, the rates are $50/day, $30/session (3-hour session), and $15/hour. These rates are applicable for Irvine as well as Lake Forest location, during our academic hours between 8:30 am and 5:30 pm. Outside these hours the rate is $20 per half hour.

As is the case with every quality Montessori program in Irvine, seats are limited and are available on first-come-first-served basis. Please send the information about your child and the choice of program so that we can begin the process of registration and contact you about the availability. Please read the Parent handbook for the preschool policies.
