Welcome to Great Beginnings Montessori School,

Welcome! While the application deadline for the 2019/20 school year has passed, we are now accepting applications on a rolling basis, pending available space.


Our school enrolls students twice a year, in March (for the following school year) and again in January. 

2019/20 availability:

  • Toddler, ages 2-3 (Foothills campus): FULL

  • Preschool and Kindergarten, ages 3-6 (Springhill campus): FULL

  • Micro-school: FULL 

We are sorry we are full in the Foothills and Springhill campus, but we encourage you to join our waiting list. 

Our community is welcoming, and we enjoy connecting with new families. Please don't hesitate to call anytime to see if we have any openings or a wait list at a particular level. Or call to start a conversation about your short- or long-range goals. Together we can help determine if Great Beginnings is a good fit for your child and your family.


We love our school and enjoy showing you around.

We invite you to call our school and arrange a time for a tour, when you can see the school, meet the teachers, observe the students, and learn more about our innovative programs.

Tour All Levels: Toddler, Preschool, Kindergarten, and Micro-school (1st - 8th grade). Our tours are both friendly and informative. Our Head of School and Assistant Head of School give a brief overview presentation. Teachers from every level are also on hand to answer questions and demonstrate Montessori lessons. You may then take a tour of the Springhill, Micro-school and/ or Foothills campus. 

You are welcome to bring your children with you; all applicants will also have the opportunity to visit later during the admissions process.

We accept students with learning challenges on an individual basis and when we are confident that we can meet their needs.  If you would like to discuss whether GBMS may be a fit for your child, please contact us. 


In the meantime, visit our website to learn more about the magic of Montessori education, the lifelong value of experiential learning, and the core values that unite our growing campus(es).

We look forward to seeing you!


Mikel Daenan​

Head of Admissions
