About Rooted Life Montessori's Tuition & Fees

Rooted Life Montessori's Tuition and Fees breakdown for the 2020-2021 school year is listed below. We have several options for preschool aged students, as well as a Friday-only Fine Arts Program; which is a great 1 day supplement to children who already have a homeschool curriculum.

Registration

How do I secure my child’s spot in class? Why do private schools require a deposit?

When we ask for a deposit at registration, we are asking for a commitment to plan for your child before the school year begins: preparing the environment, purchasing materials, and hiring the staff begins long before the doors open in August. This deposit is non-refundable. Thank you for partnering with us in preparing for your child's individualized education.

Home School $100 $50 $50 $200

Brain Games Summer Camp

After 20 years in early childhood development, our team of educators is learning more and more about how to help children develop and reach their learning potential. There are math camps, reading camps and writing camps; but our focus is different and deeper. Instead of focusing on the academic component of learning, we focus on a child’s coordination and processing speed within the brain. Read more here

Why do we require all incoming students to participate in IM summer camp?

All children benefit from cognitive enhancement and an increase of neuro-pathways. Our training process has evidence based research to show efficacy in improving perceptual modalities for learning! We have found that during the academic school year, children have assorted responsibilities which compete for their attention. However, as we direct our focus and intention on IM during the summer month of June, we consistently find that the children progress with greater momentum on the progressive levels of challenge within the IM program. Summer camp is also a transition time for new students to become accustomed to the teaching style of Montessori, to alleviate fears and make new friends.
