Applications rolling in for new Montessori school in Manchester
MANCHESTER — Enrollment applications are already being submitted to an organization that hopes to open the state’s first publicly funded Montessori school in September.
But Mill Falls Charter School anticipates its applications will exceed the 90 slots it will have available in September, said Meryl Levin, chairman of the board that will oversee the school. A lottery is expected to be held on March 15.
“There’s a huge amount of interest,” she said.
Interest may only grow when the organization holds three public events in the coming days.
-- At 6:30 p.m. tonight, an information session is slated for the Manchester Public Library auditorium.
-- At 10 a.m. Saturday, an information session is slated for the Eileen Phinney Multicultural Center, 521 Maple St. The event will be in English and Spanish.
-- At 10 a.m. Feb. 11, Montessori educator Kate Coltin Callahan will hold an in-depth discussion about the Montessori approach at the Puritan Backroom Conference Center.
Plans are to start in September with 90 students in Kindergarten to Grade 3.
