We aim to make the school fees as clear and simple as possible. We divert approximately 12.5% of the tuition fee to what we call the development fund, which we use to invest in new books, materials and other educational and play equipment that the children directly use.

The enrollment fees go towards what we call the legacy fund. This supports the school’s recruitment, professional training and development and allows us to explore new projects that enhance the work of the school and the overall quality and effectiveness of the Montessori we are able to offer.
