Fee for IMS “Montessori school” recognition is $10 per enrolled child, with a maximum fee of $700 per year. This is an annual fee, which is reduced to a minimum of $45 per year by the amount of fees paid for your participation in specific IMS programs which aim to strengthen the school’s committed practice of true natural Montessori teaching. Qualifying programs include: tuition fees paid to IMS for staff participation in IMS teacher education; registration fees paid for parents and/or staff attending an IMS workshop; consultation fees, and a “bulk mail” subscription to the IMS newsletter, Montessori Observer (4 times per year), which is $3.00 per person (minimum order, 50).
Qualified schools follow true natural Montessori teaching. Recognition will be confirmed by follow-up mailing of specific written criteria.
* Reduce amount of fee paid to IMS for teacher education, conferences, consultation, bulk mail shipment of "Montessori Observer", and group membership paid of parents and staff to IMS during past 12-month period ($45, minimum)
