We're delighted that you are interested in learning about La Printaniere Montessori School. We offer half-day and full-day primary programs as well as a full-day elementary program for first through fifth graders.



La Printaniere admits students ages three through fifth grade. Our academic year runs from August through May. Per state requirements, applicants must turn three by September 30.

Priority is given to returning students and their siblings, with open enrollment beginning in the spring for the upcoming school year. Upon visiting our school for a tour, you will receive an application. Once a completed application and registration fee is submitted, your child’s place will be secure. When our rolls are closed, we will begin a wait list.


To best create an environment conducive to achieving a normalized classroom, we close enrollment in October. You are welcome to tour the school and receive information for the upcoming school year at any time.

La Printaniere Montessori School admits students of any race, color, national, or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national, or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admission policies, or other school-administered programs.


The best way to learn about La Printaniere is to come and visit us. We encourage you to schedule an appointment to observe our children working during the school day. Please call (225) 769-2255 for your personal tour or email us HERE. We're happy to answer questions about our programs and the philosophies behind Montessori education. Come see what we have to offer!

We must help the child to act for himself, will for himself, think for himself; this is the art of those who aspire to serve the spirit.
— Dr. Maria Montessori
