Welcome From Admissions

Dear Families,

Thank you for visiting Montclare’s website!  As we enter our twentieth year of operation, we are deeply proud to invite you to learn more about Montclare’s exceptional preschool program and our warm and welcoming community of educators and families.

Montclare’s experienced teachers and administrators create a warm and engaging learning environment, instilling in our students a joy for learning and a love of school.  Montclare’s thoughtfully balanced approach to early childhood education includes opportunities for independent exploration and discovery, as well as nurturing teacher scaffolding. With a deep understanding of early childhood development, our educators foster creativity, confidence, resilience, and kindness in and out of the classroom.

Montclare’s teachers and educational team get to know each child and family individually to provide the best possible preschool experience, and when the time comes to seek an ongoing school for your child, Mimi Dupuis, our dedicated Director of Exmissions, works exclusively with our families, expertly supporting you through the Kindergarten application process.

Once you apply, I look forward to taking you on a tour of Montclare and share more about our program. If you have any questions or want to learn more about our admissions process, programs, and facility, please feel free to email me at [email protected].
