How much does Montessori cost?

Answer:

Because all Montessori schools are operated independently of one another, tuitions vary widely. According to a 2009-10 NAMTA survey of North American Montessori schools, tuitions range from a low of under $999 per year to a high of over $14,000 per year. Median annual tuition by age level was as follows:

Infant/toddler up to 6 hrs/Wk: $3,003
Infant/toddler up to 7-15 hrs/Wk: $5,400
Infant/toddler up to 16-29 hrs/Wk: $6,750
Infant/toddler up to >29 hrs/Wk: $9302
Ages 3-6, 3-hour day: $4,920
Ages 3-6, 4-hour day: $5,845
Ages 3-6, 6-hour day: $7,317
Ages 6-9: $8,550
Ages 9-12: $8,714
Ages 12-15 and 15-18: 10,671

Also keep in mind that there are many Montessori programs in public schools, which charge no tuition at all to students within their district.
