Armidale Montessori has set daily fees for children depending on the mode they are enrolled in. These fees are outlined on the respective enrolment pages.
There are a number of small additional fees, common to most Early Childhood settings that are payable from time to time. They include:
- A one off non-refundable enrolment fee. This reserves your child’s place, pays to administer your enrolment and gives you membership to Armidale Montessori Preschool. This is compulsory and is currently $33.
- As a Not-for-Profit Community Preschool, Armidale Montessori relies on various sources to remain viable. In order to ensure that basic maintenance is done regularly, families pay a $25 maintenance levy each quarter.
- Part of building our Preschool community, and making the space and surrounds as lovely as possible, is to undertake working bees. There are also many other ways that families can get involved in volunteering their time towards the Preschool. We hope that all families will give 3 hours of their time each term and therefore not have to pay a non-participation fee. Families who are unable, or would prefer not to participate will be asked to pay $40 per term. This can be paid in a yearly lump sum if desired.
- Excursions – from time to time excursions, or activities that come to the Preschool, may incur a small cost. You will be advised of these well in advance. We endeavour to make sure that no child misses out, so if paying for excursions and actives is difficult, please contact our director for a confidential talk.
