Tuition and Financial Aid


Montessori School for Young Children 2017-2018 Tuition Rates (Per Month)

Tuition rates are based on a child’s enrollment for one school year (August through May). The annual tuition is divided into nine equal installments based on a child’s schedule. Monthly tuition payments (listed below) are collected in August, October, November, December, January, February, March, April, and May of each school year. A child enrolling mid-year will receive a prorated tuition total based on the percentage of days he/she will be enrolled for the school year.  Tuition payments are not subject to adjustment due to illness or absence.  If a child is withdrawn before a school year is complete, the final tuition payment will be adjusted based on the percentage of days he/she was enrolled for the school year.  A written notice is due 30-days prior to a child being withdrawn mid-year.

Materials Fee

An annual $150.00 Materials Fee, per student, is required for all families enrolling their child in the Montessori School for Young Children. Half of the Materials Fee, $75.00, is due when your child enrolls or re-enrolls. The other half is due the first day of second semester. This fee covers student supplies, consumables, and other items used in the classroom during the year. If your child enrolls mid-semester, this fee will be prorated based on the number of days your child will be enrolled for that semester.


Financial Aid

Our scholarship program provides need-based tuition assistance to families who would otherwise not be able to attend the Montessori School for Young Children. The amount awarded in scholarships each year can vary based on the number of applications the school receives and the amount of scholarship funds the school has raised through fundraising activities and donations.

Scholarships are awarded in the summer before the start of first semester. Scholarship applications will still be considered for students enrolling mid-year.

The Montessori School for Young Children accepts a limited number of students who receive the State Child Care Subsidy Program (Title XX) through the State of Nebraska. The family is responsible for contacting DHHS to apply for assistance. Title XX families are responsible for the $75 materials fees due each semester. Please contact the Montessori School for Young Children to determine if any Title XX spots are available.
