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.
