Montessori Garden has been serving preschool aged children and their families in the north end of Seattle for over 30 years.  We provide high-quality childcare and learning for children ages 2 1/2 - 6 years old.  The curriculum is anchored in the Montessori Method of education and also incorporates a rich Creative Dramatics program.

Montessori Garden is in the historic John B. Allen Elementary School on Phinney Ridge at 6615 Dayton Ave North.  This renovated turn of the century building is the perfect home for a century old method of education.

All applicants must visit the school or meet with a Director prior to being considered for enrollment. Once you attend an Open House, review our materials, submit an application and pay the $50 fee we will keep your application on file.  We prefer that families apply in the year prior to enrollment.  Our wait pool is not first come - first served so there is not an advantage to applying years in advance.  We ask all families to make a 3-year commitment to our program. Please use the SignUP Genius link to RSVP for an Open House.

Applications can be found HERE and may be submitted at any time for all future enrollment


All families will be notified of their application status no later than April 1, 2019 where you will either be accepted or placed back into the wait pool.

If you have specific questions regarding enrollment please email the office at
