Prospective parents are encouraged to visit TCM with their child during the school day. Our tour will provide you with a comprehensive overview of our school's philosophy & curriculum, our classrooms & staff, and a one-on-one meeting with the director. For more information, please email us at to set up a visit: we can't wait to meet you!

Beginning in October, families interested in applying for the following school year can submit an application with a non-refundable $75 application fee. Priority is given first to applicants with children currently enrolled, followed by sibling applicants, followed by new applicants.

Applications are collected through late January, at which point all previously submitted applications are considered, with acceptances made in February for the following school year. Families are expected to submit a deposit and one month's tuition to secure the child's acceptance for September along with a signed enrollment agreement. Additional spots for our Infant/Toddler and Preschool rooms are filled on a rolling basis thereafter, and, whenever space allows within a school year.

The Children's Meetinghouse is a non-profit Massachusetts corporation governed by a parent Board of Directors.

The Children's Meetinghouse accommodates children of all backgrounds and needs, including those with special challenges.
