Thank you for your interest in MLK Montessori School
for your child's preschool education.
Our goal is to build a close working relationship with families. This relationship begins with you, the parent or guardian, making an appointment to meet with our Director to talk about your family’s needs and to take a tour of the school. It is often easier if the first meeting is for adults only, though children are welcome to join if needed. After the initial meeting, some schedule another appointment to bring their child in to spend time in a classroom. The purpose of these meetings is to:
• Introduce families to our programs, philosophy and policies.
• Answer questions and concerns.
• Allow the staff to learn about your child, your family and your educational goals.
• Discuss tuition and financing options.
MLK Montessori serves all children, regardless of their families’ incomes. Each year, the majority of our students receive tuition assistance through MLK Montessori scholarships, Brightpoint Head Start or On My Way PreK programs. If you would like assistance accessing any of these resources, please contact the MLK Montessori office at (260) 423-4333 or schedule a tour with us using our online form.
Because we are a Paths of Quality Level 4 Child Care Center, MLK Montessori students can get assistance through Brightpoint's Child Care Assistance Program, which helps families afford quality child care. Parents must be working, going to school, or receiving job training and meet income guidelines to qualify. Learn more at mybrightpoint.org.
On My Way Pre-K
On My Way Pre-K awards preschool grants to eligible children from low-income families. For the upcoming school year, eligible children are those who will be 4 years old on August 1, 2016 and who will be attending kindergarten in the 2017-18 school year. Learn more at onmywayprek.org.
MLK Montessori enrolls students without regard to race, religion, color, or national origin. The School reserves the right to maintain class balance with respect to age, gender and special needs. All students are enrolled on a trial basis. The school reserves the right to ask a parent to withdraw a child from the school if it is the opinion of the Staff that the child is not able to benefit from the program.
