Step 3 – Student Visit

Westmont does require that all students have a mandatory visit so that teachers can get to know your child. This visit is a half day for Early Primary and two days for Elementary/Middle School.

Step 4 – Enrolment

Enrolment may happen after the student visit. Successful enrolment depends upon available spaces, suitability for the program, and the ability to meet any special learning needs a student may have.


Dr. Montessori believed that children learned best by doing, not by passively accepting the ideas and pre-existing knowledge of others.

Westmont School strives for complete clarity in our fee structure, and to keep our fees competitive and affordable, and to offer excellent value.

Tuition 2020-21 (New Families)


One Bond per Family $5000 One time, fully refundable.

West-Mont School is a school that is committed to academic excellence and a caring learning environment. West-Mont and its Board of Directors, The Western Communities Montessori Society (WCMS), recognizes that in order to offer a program based on these standards of excellence and to create the environment that maximizes the potential of its students, investment in the appropriate facilities and equipment is required.

In September 1998, the WCMS Board located, purchased and moved West-Mont School to its current wonderful site in Metchosin. In order to provide the necessary capital for this investment, the refundable Student Bond Program was established. (The Student Bond was replaced by the “Family Bond” in April 2009.) The on-going purpose of the bond program is to support the capital plan used to fund the long term capital needs of the School.

Lionheart Athletic Wear

Orders are placed by the school periodically throughout the year. Annually in the Spring sample racks are set up to allow families to see, feel , and try on the gear for sizing. Online ordering is not available at this time.

Withdrawals

The withdrawal of a student at any time after enrolment or re-enrolment reduces the school’s revenue, but not its’ operating costs. It may also affect decisions and commitments regarding staffing and class configurations that have already been made.


Therefore, once a student is enrolled or re-enrolled at West-Mont Montessori, the parents/guardians are expected to make a financial commitment for the full year. However, there are sometimes serious, unforeseen circumstances that cause a parent/guardian to permanently withdraw a student.
