Blog : Open Houses at Brixham Montessori Friends School

By Madalyn | Oct 17, 2014 | in

It's admission season at the Brixham Montessori Friends School located at 18 Brickyard Court, York, ME! They are hosting three Open House events for prospective parents and families, one November 11, December 9, and January 13. All of the Open Houses are from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at the school.

The Open Houses allows caregivers with interest in the school to come and check out the overall facility as well as the classrooms. The tours are lead by faculty and staff of the school, which allow parents to ask and receive answers to their questions while visiting the school.

The school has dual roots in the traditions of both Montessori (an educational philosophy which champions independence, freedom within limits, and respect for a child’s natural psychological development) and the Quaker-inspired Friends movement, Brixham prides itself on values of simplicity, equality, community, and peace education. Brixham’s  student-to-teacher ratio is 7:1, which assures that every student gets the attention – and the creative encouragement –they deserve.

After attending one of the Open Houses, the parents and school follow up with one another to do a more personal one-on-one interview specific to family and child. It is important that both family and school feel a good fit with on another. Do not let this wonderful opportunity pass you and your family by!

Prospective parents are encouraged to send in an application by January 15th for priority consideration. For more information on the admissions process, please click on http://brixhammontessori.org/admissions/ or call (207) 351-2700.
