Tuition

School Year Contracts and Rates are from August 1st - May 31st.

There are 2 schedule options to determine your tuition. Schedule A gives you more days at school while Schedule B gives you more time off; 1 week for Spring Break, a week for Thanksgiving, 2 weeks for the holidays, etc. Your tuition is based upon the schedule you choose. You can view the calendar at the bottom of the web page and our home page.

Once a child turns 12 months and 18 months the price change will occur the following month. FWMS will not pro-rate the month due to moving rooms or growing older.

Toddler Before and After Care

Each payment is per installment - a total of 10 installments over the course of the school year. Each payment is the same despite planned and unplanned closures.

Before Care: Children arrive anytime between 7:30 and 9:00. The children are able to finish their breakfast from home and work on their Montessori materials before class time begins at 9:00 am. All breakfast needs to be completed by 8:30 to allow for clean up and prep for the 9:00 start time.

After School Time: We are now offering an extra hour of care to enjoy extra time with the teacher but also some enrichment activities; dancing, gardening, cooking and more.

After Care:  Children are picked up anytime between 3:00 and 6:30 pm.  The children will enjoy more outdoor time, an afternoon snack and continue to work with their Montessori materials with their teacher until 4:00.   The children in the After Care program have a daily routine of events to continue the consistency they are used to in the classroom.  All Montessori philosophies and activities are continued in the After Care program along with other playful activities.

Summer Program -

Families pay by the week based upon their schedules!

Contracts: Infant I, Infant II, Toddler, Primary

We are open year round but for the families who only need a summer program we gladly accept enrollment just for the months of June and July. During the summer we are open from 7:30-6:30 and have programs for ages 6 weeks to 6 years old.  We continue with our curriculum and monthly themes. In the summer we implement more outdoor experiences and a more relaxed routine.  The students can have an enjoyable time working with many crafts, songs, games, water activities, weekly/monthly themes and still be surrounded by the Montessori philosophy and materials. A separate enrollment form is required if a student will be joining us for only the summer. Please click on the contract links above based upuon the age of your child.
