Some General Principles of Montessori Education

The Montessori approach significantly differs from mainstream education in some key areas. Here are some of these key aspects of the Montessori philosophy espoused by York Region Montessori schools:

While Montessori schools in Markham, Aurora, and Newmarket are academically rigorous, they emphasize a lot more than academics. Becoming a well-rounded person is a major part of education. The classroom instills confidence and independence in your child.

Paying for a Private School

Tuition for York-region's Montessori schools begins around $4,000 per year. However, there are ways to alleviate tuition costs. The school itself or external organizations (i.e. corporations and charitable organizations) offer scholarships (merit-based), financial aid, and sibling discounts. The government of Ontario also provides tax breaks if the Montessori school you send your child to has both religious and academic components.
