Fees 2020-2021

Investment in the Early Years

We wanted to take a moment to explain our pricing structure, as we are sure that it will generate questions. Most private schools start with a low price in the early years, which increases throughout the child’s time at school. 

Current scientific evidence shows us that the investment in the early years, before the age of 6, through the provision of a quality preschool program, provides children with life-long benefits. 

So what is the difference?

For a start, the ratio of staff to children is much higher in the early years. Children need more adult attention before the age of 3 to ensure that they develop strong language and social skills.

The Montessori Program encourages independence, which as anyone with a toddler knows, is exactly what they want, and requires time and energy from the adults around them. Young children need space and resources in order to be able to practice these skills. 

At the same time, traditional programs generally involve children working on group activities and in order to create a safe environment, children are often given materials which are unbreakable. Whilst this is more time and cost effective, it removes vital learning opportunities for children to discover the consequences of their actions and moderate their own behaviour. 

Finally, we want to help children to learn life-long skills that will help them throughout their education. We rarely accept children above the age of 5 into our programme if they have not already been in a Montessori program elsewhere. This means that we want our families to stay with us, and for this loyalty, we feel it is important that they are rewarded.
