Join the 50th Anniversary Club
As a member of the 50th Anniversary Club you are part of a group dedicated to providing children and youth with a world-class Montessori education.
To join, pledge a gift to an area of need that is important to you, and spread payments out over the school year.
If you don’t have a preference, donations to our unrestricted fund will go to the area of greatest need in the school. By contributing at any level, you will continue to impact education choice in London as you sustain the longevity of our school through your pledge. Every donation is used to enhance our students educational experience.
These are just some of the ways your monthly donation makes a difference…
Program Materials – $25/Month
A core element of Montessori education is the specialized classroom materials. Dr. Montessori was one of the first educators to realize that children learn better when they use their sense of touch. This is why Montessori material is critical to the classroom and education of our students. We are also committed to providing students with education that keeps pace with our modern world. Google Chromebooks were our most recent technological purchase.
Your gift will total $250 by June 2018. This incredible gift will help us purchase high quality Montessori materials throughout the year and plan for any future classroom technology needs.
Faculty Development – $50/Month
Our teaching team is our most prized asset. Teachers require special training to be qualified Montessori teachers as well as continuing education to keep pace with our student’s evolving needs. We continuously invest in our teachers to ensure they continue to provide extraordinary education to our students. From webinars to full day workshops and conferences, we strive to provide our faculty opportunities to learn more about child development and education.
By year end, your gift of $500 will provide a teacher with ongoing access to webinars, workshops and training throughout the school year.
Special Projects – $75/Month
Once in a while an opportunity arises that makes an incredible impact on the way we educate our students. Our special projects fund allows us to tackle these initiatives, projects such as the Oxford Street and Westmount outdoor learning environments and our elementary courtyard.
Your donation of $75 a month will total $750 by June 30, 2018. Your generous gift will ensure that we can continue to act on ideas that will greatly enhance the education and development of our students.
Tuition Support- $100/Month
Many families make financial sacrifices because they truly believe in the Montessori philosophy and are determined their child receive a quality Montessori education. Sometimes the financial sacrifices aren’t enough to cover the full cost of tuition. The Financial Support program provides tuition assistance to committed MA families. Over the past five years, the program has assisted over 50 families.
Your donation will total $1,000 at the end of the school year, which will make the difference as to whether a family has to withdraw their child, or can continue on their Montessori journey.
Capital Improvements – $200/Month
The uniqueness of our classrooms and beautiful historical buildings, as well as centralized location offer so many benefits to our students. Gifts to our Capital Improvements fund have paid for upgrades (new flooring, paint, new bathrooms) in many of our classrooms.
Your support of $200 a month will amount to $2,000 by the end of the school year. This incredible contribution will help us maintain our learning environments and plan for new capital improvements that will continue to enhance our world-class Montessori program.
Leadership Circle – $500/Month
By becoming part of the 50th Anniversary Leadership Circle you are joining a group of dedicated supporters who lead the way for the Montessori Academy of London to exceed expectations for years to come. A gift of $500 per month will total $5,000 by the end of the school year.
