What parents are seeking is what we deliver in an Oak Meadow education. You’d be surprised how many people from your community have/had a child at Oak Meadow. Ask around and see for yourself how many Oak Meadow families you might know in your neighborhood or at work.

Step 3: Student Visit and Parent Conversation
Following the submission and review of the application and applicable evaluation forms, a 30-minute student visit will be scheduled with the Director of Enrollment Management. The student visit gives your child an opportunity to experience the classroom environment and allows for assessment of your child’s developmental readiness for our classroom environment.
Parent Conversation — The parent conversation provides an opportunity for us to learn more about your child, your expectations, and also provides you an opportunity to learn more about our program. Any decision-making parent is required to participate in this meeting, which typically lasts for 30–45 minutes.
Classroom Visit for Student Applicants – Once the application, transcripts, and applicable evaluations and documentation have been submitted and reviewed, a classroom visit is scheduled to provide an opportunity for prospective students to experience a day in our Montessori classrooms.
Parent Conversation — After your child’s classroom visit, a parent conversation will take place with the Director of Enrollment Management. This is an opportunity for you to share important characteristics of your child, and for you to learn more about Oak Meadow. Any decision-making parent is required to participate in this meeting, which typically lasts for 30-45 minutes.
