Programs and fees (reviewed and updated December 2021)

Our Centre focus is providing year-round learning opportunities for the aspiring learner. Begin with complete Montessori programming in Nido (8 months to 19 months), and graduate to Bambini (19 months to 3 years) and Casa (3 through 6 yrs) classrooms. Our accredited Kindergarten program provides accelerated learning for the student for ages 4.9+ years. All programs are tuition funded; meal programs are available as an add-on to any program.

Our small class sizes and limited enrolment promote individual attention and ensure physical distancing. All materials are sanitized regularly throughout the day, with our spaces commercially cleaned, for your peace of mind in a post-pandemic world. A strict illness policy is rigorously applied at all levels.

All of our campuses are uniformed environments via Elegant Design Uniforms in Calgary. A typical uniform set plus extra pieces for one student costs between $250 - $400 for a school year. (Our Nido environment offers a modified uniform to allow ease in movement and exploration.)
