Capital Montessori School is a not-for-profit, parent co-operative run by a Principal and an elected Board of parents. We try to keep fees as low as possible to enable more children and families to be part of our community and access quality early childhood education.
The School offers 20 Hours ECE. A flat fee is charged each term for hours over and above the 20 free hours.
Our preschool fees are $750 per term (generally around 10 weeks) when the full 20 free hours are attested to the school.
We offer a discount to families who pay their fees for the full calendar year (6%) or two terms (3%) in advance.
There is a registration fee of $50 (per family) to reserve a place for your child, and cover administration/membership of the Capital Montessori School Inc. Society. No registration fee is payable for Rata playgroup families. A bond of $375 is required to confirm enrolment (two terms before your child's start date). This bond is refundable in your child's final term, but is non-refundable if your child does not take up their place.
Assistance with paying fees for 3 and 4 year olds may be available through the Childcare Subsidy offered by Work & Income New Zealand (WINZ).
Infant & Toddler Playgroup
Fees for Rata Infant & Toddler sessions are $80 per family, per term. Families can attend one or more sessions each week.
At Capital Montessori we believe children who have access to a Montessori preschool education get the very best start on their learning journey. As part of our commitment to giving more children and their families the opportunity to access Montessori we offer a scholarship programme. Each scholarship covers 100% of the annual enrolment fees, for each year of the three-year programme.
Applications for 2018 have now closed.
