How much does a Montessori School Cost ?
Cost of Montessori School
The cost of a Montessori education has been a controversial topic for a long time now. Some parents believe that it’s worth the investment, while others feel that they’re wasting their money. There are those who say that the cost is justified because they’ll be able to afford anything else they want to buy with savings from not shelling out as much as other schools do—contrastingly, there are those who accept the price tag and value their education without ever regretting their decision.
The cost of the Montessori School is between $14,000 and $24,000 annually depending on your location and kind of Montessori school and trained staff and the grade level. This range includes tuition and materials for a family with one child. The actual price depends on how many hours (one hour or two) and days (40 or 60) your child attends school each week. Montessori Teachers need to be certified, Teaching materials need to acquired and student to teacher ratio need to maintained at optimum level
What kind of school is Montessori
Montessori is an educational approach that was developed by a physician by the name of Maria Montessori. She observed children in their natural environment and based her method on what she observed. Her theory states that children are humans who learn through observation, experience, and self-learning—she called this approach “scientific pedagogy.” She believed that all children are able to learn but that some needed extra help to make it possible for them to do so.
Traditional and Montessori
“Traditional and Agile” Montessori Schools are those that offer a consistent curriculum, hours and discipline based on the Montessori Method. These schools follow the “Pythagorean Sequence” as taught by Maria Montessori. The aim here is to provide a non-stressful environment where student’s self development as well as academic progress are not compromised by rigid schedules or negative environment.
