Enrollment Info

Thank You for your interest in our school. My name is Meredith Goodrich and I am the founder/owner of the Montessori School of Exeter. I created the school in 1979 and it was the first Montessori School in Exeter. Our school is now over 30 years old and has second generation children and staff!

We are presently located at the Exeter United Methodist Church on 307 Epping Road in Exeter. It is right before the new Exeter High School.  We are not affiliated with the church religiously but do have a wonderful business relationship with them. Philosophically our school celebrates multi-culturalism and takes a global perspective on world views promoting “Peace Education.”

Our school houses up to 57 children. It is stringently licensed by the State of NH Dept of Health and Human Services.  We have three classes which all have at least a two year age spread. This is primary to the Montessori method. We begin as early as 18 months and go through kindergarten. We offer two day/ three day and five day spots with early arrival from 7:15 and aftercare until 4:15.   During the summer we offer an eight week session on T.W and Th. from 9-1.

Once  a family is committed to the school it is a school year (180 day) commitment which gives us a solid foundation upon which to financially function.  This provides security for the staff and stability for the school. Our staff is dynamic and very experienced. I have to say – they are the best you can get. We have a strong back up staff and many brilliant support people.

If you are interested in our school here is the routine:
Schedule a parent visit in the fall.  Come observe the classrooms, ask questions and get a feel for the place. Observations are generally from 9:30 – 10:00 by appointment.

If you are interested then we can discuss the price and will give you a proposal. In January we have our in-house registration; thereafter from February on we will take new applicants and waiting list families.

Come on in and see the Magic, feel the Peace.
