(children 15 months to 2 years old as of September 1, 2022)


There are two deadlines for Beginner applications: December 1 and January 15. We strongly encourage families applying for our Beginner program to apply as early as possible; demand for the program is high and we expect all seats to fill. 

Families who apply by the December 1 deadline will receive an admission decision on January 28, 2022. For families who apply between December 1 and January 15, admissions decision letters informing applicants of acceptance, non-acceptance, or wait list status will be sent via email by March 10, 2022.

Step 1: Online Inquiry

Fill out an inquiry form here. The completion of an inquiry form registers you in our system so that we can communicate with you throughout the admissions process and share important upcoming dates.

Step 2: Get To Know Us!

We are thrilled to welcome fully vaccinated visitors back to the Wellan campus! Masks will remain mandatory for all visitors. Please use this link to register for a time convenient for you. If you are unable to visit Wellan in person, or prefer an opportunity to get to know the school via Zoom, please use this link to get started. You may also access our interactive virtual tour here.

Step 3: Application

(Deadlines: Early Decision - December 1, Regular Decision - January 15th) Fill out an application form here. ​You will be prompted to pay a $50 fee online after you complete your application. If you'd prefer to pay by check, please make payable to Wellan Montessori School and send via USPS to Admissions, 80 Crescent Ave, Newton, MA 02459. Financial aid may be available for qualified applicants. Please see our Financial Assistance page for more details.

Step 4: Classroom Observations

Observations will be hosted in the winter months following the submission of an application. This parent-only visit will be scheduled in the mornings between 8:15–10:00am. Wellan will contact you to schedule an observation after your student’s application file is complete. Click here to download our Classroom Observation Guide.

Step 5: Student Visit

Student visits will be scheduled following the submission of an application and all other necessary paperwork. During this visit, you and your child will meet with Division Leader, Becky Alukonis, to enjoy an opportunity to get to know one another more and explore a Montessori environment. Admissions decisions will be offered to applicants via email on January 28, 2022 (early decision) or March 10, 2022 (regular decision).
