Welcome to the New Westminster Montessori Society Website
The New Westminster Montessori Society supports the public Montessori programs at Richard McBride, Lord Tweedsmuir, and Connaught Heights elementary schools. The schools are located in New Westminster, British Columbia, and are part of School District 40. The Montessori Society is composed of the parents whose children are in Montessori preschool and elementary school in New Westminster. We are a registered charity.
The Society looks to be in good financial shape for its Spring classroom purchases. Thanks to your support, the Society has received year to date donations of $11,000 and earned fundraiser income of $2,797, for total revenues of $13,797. This will be used for our budgeted costs of $15,291, which includes $14,700 to be spent directly on classrooms.

Please Support Your Child's Montessori Program
The New Westminster Montessori Society is a registered charity committed to promoting and developing Montessori education in the public school system. We have committed to the School Board to provide the materials needed for all existing and new Montessori classrooms. It costs approximately $15,000 to properly equip a classroom with Montessori materials. The Society requests that parents donate $100 per child (this is $10 per months for 10 months). However, this is not mandatory in order for your child(ren) to be in the program. Donations are strictly voluntary.
People wanting to support Montessori education can make a tax-deductible donation to the Society. All monies donated go directly to the purchasing of Montessori materials for the children's classrooms. People can make a direct donation to the society by mailing a cheque (as well as post-dated cheques) to the New Westminster Montessori Society, Suite 379, 104-1015 Columbia Street, New Westminster, BC, V3M 6V3. Or simply return it to your child's Teacher. For other ways to donate please click here
