Welcoming a new family and child into the HGCA community provides us an opportunity to grow! Our process of admission starts by where the family is invited to get to know the facility by an initial tour. By scheduling a tour with our Admissions Director, parents are invited to walk the facility and observe children working in their classrooms. This initial visit is generally conducted with only the parents and allows them to better focus on the daily practices and rhythms of the classroom where they can decide if this is the right place for their child.
** Interested parents may schedule tour by calling the office at (630) 613-8431, emailing HGCA Management at firstname.lastname@example.org, or use form on website. Tours scheduled will be sent an confirmation email from Google Calendar. If you must re-schedule just contact the school.
Please be detailed in your email and leave your phone number.
During the visit, each family will receive an informational handout and a tour of the classrooms.
A visit with your child is generally scheduled after your initial tour. For parents of an infant/toddler, both parents and child are scheduled to meet and get to know the teacher and the program. For Primary level, your child will meet one or more teachers, and is given the opportunity to work one-on-one with them doing Montessori lessons and work with other children in the classroom. Your child’s visit could last from 15 minutes up to 30 minutes based on his or her comfort and readiness to interact in a Montessori classroom.
