Starting a New Montessori School: Capital Budget

Starting a New Montessori School: Capital Budget

3. New School Capital Budget

 

The following are capital budget items—those expenses which deal with furniture, fixtures, and non-consumable Montessori hardware. The costs listed are estimates established in 1996. For the operating budget, consult the next section on Finances.

 

Montessori Apparatus


Preschool or Elementary $17,000-$25,000 (for one classroom).

 

Practical Life


Preschool $550-$880—equipment for washing, pouring, polishing, food preparation, eating, etc. (per classroom).

 

Furniture


Preschool or Elementary $3,000-$4,000—includes chairs, tables, and bricks and boards to build shelving (per classroom).

 

Office Furniture and Equipment


Budget $700-$3,500. Much equipment is available used, but options such as a computer or laminator can be very expensive.

 

Books


Budget $500-$1,000 per class. There is nothing like beautiful books, although used books are sometimes better than new.

 

License and Occupancy Fees


Budget $500-$1,000 per class.

 

Building Repair


Refurbishing a classroom depends strictly on the condition of the site and the standards of the school. It always represents some expense.

Dear NAMTA Members and Followers,

Our operations are currently being moved to Seattle from Ohio. During this rather untimely transition, we appreciate your graciousness.

Our membership requests are currently backlogged, but will be processed once we return from Dallas. If you are purchasing a ticket for Dallas and desire the member rate, we still have the ability to verify existing and new memberships.

All ad requests will also be addressed post-conference.

Store order fulfillment will also be delayed as we set up our new store. We anticipate our store re-opening in December. If you have submitted an order in the past two weeks, that you need right away, please contact us for a refund. If you are able to wait until December, we would be happy to send your order at that time. We understand that this is a less than ideal situation and apologize for the inconvenience.

And if you are still interested in coming to Dallas, but have not yet purchased your ticket -- we are offering a special discount. 3 tickets for the price of 2! This is a $330 savings! To take advantage of this discount please go to: https://namta.typeform.com/to/BJjDdD

If you have any questions in the meantime, please reach us at staff@montessori-namta.org or 206-919-6349

Hope to see you all in Dallas!
