Geiger Montessori School

Preschool & Kindergarten Registration

January​​​​​​​​​​​ 15, 2020

Parents come meet our Principal, Mr. Neil O'Brien, as well as, our wonderful teaching team.  This is an evening to hear about Geiger, meet the teachers and ask your questions.  We look forward to seeing you at our Open House.  Children are welcome to attend, however, we do not have childcare available.
At this time, for the 2020/2021 school year we have 36 - 38 open preschool spots to fill.

If you cannot make our Open House, Principal O'Brien will hold tours on the following dates to share information about our program, school and answer questions.  We ask that the tours be for parents only, as it is the least distracting during the school day.

Tour times at 9:30am
