"These words reveal the child’s inner needs: Help me to do it alone."

set up a time to meet

Salina Montessori School offers two half-day preschool classes that meet Monday through Thursday. Our programs are designed for children between the ages of three and six. Students must be toilet-trained before school begins in September.

A three-year commitment to Salina Montessori School is strongly encouraged to fully benefit from the experience.

We also offer after school and summer camp opportunities. Click here for a list of 2017 camps and registration form. Contact Sherry Krehbiel at 785.342.6343 for more information.

meet our staff

  1. We recommend that you set up a time to visit the school and meet with us. We’ll walk you through the classroom and introduce you to the Montessori approach to education.
  2. If you decide that Salina Montessori School is the right fit for your family, we welcome you to submit an enrollment application along with a nonrefundable $100 registration fee.
  3. Typically, we’ll be able to confirm your child’s place at Salina Montessori no later than June 1. Please check your email and the SMS website regularly for updates.
  4. If space is not available, you will be notified and may opt to be placed on a waiting list. Spaces occasionally become available in August if incoming children haven’t mastered toilet training.

Registrations are accepted in the order that they are received. Please remember that we strive to create a diverse classroom population -- both age and gender are carefully considered -- so we may not be able to honor your request for morning or afternoon session.
