School Hours

Mountain Montessori Early Learning Centre is open 4 days a week, Monday to Thursday, 8:15am to 2:15pm.

Preferably, children would attend all four mornings of the program to give them the opportunity to develop a strong connection to the environment and with each other. Afternoons are optional and run until 2:15.


The cost for the 2019/2020 school year is as follows:

Four mornings per week, 8:15 to 12:15: $510.00*/month

Four full days to 2:15: $760.00*/month

*Mountain Montessori is participating in the Parent Fee Reduction Initiative, which means there will be a reduction in your monthly fee, depending on how many hours per day and days per week your child attends.

Tuition is paid by post-dated cheques dated the 1st of each month. A deposit of 1/2 month's tuition is required upon registering, which will be applied to June's tuition payment.
