We offer an Alumni Discount of 15 per cent to former students who want their child to experience a Montessori education, whether they attended the school for one level or all the way through. The Alumni Discount applies to the tuition of a child whose parent is an alumni of the school and is based on the following criteria – the alumni:
- Must have attended at least 3 years (one whole level) of our school;
- Needs to be able to provide the specific years they were in attendance and the name of one of their teachers;
- Must commit to providing their child at least the same experience – a minimum full level of 3 years.
The benefits of Montessori are realized more the longer a child is part of the program and the intent of this discount is to encourage alumni to have their child in the program for an extended amount of time so that the student reaps the benefits an accredited Montessori experience.
