Alder Montessori

Alder Montessori is a tuition-free program with two classrooms serving 3- and 4-year-olds at entry inside Alder Elementary School. Open to young children living in the Alder Neighborhood/Reynolds School District, this program prepares young children/students for their lifetime of learning using the Montessori method of education.

We accept applications (parent interest forms) all year round. We keep a waitlist, so if we have spaces that open during the year, we can add new students.

For more information about the lottery, or to learn more about the program, please contact Alder Montessori’s School Director, Shazia Abdulla, by calling or texting (503) 893.5598, or email
