Tuition & Fees

 2015-2016 School Year

The admissions process begins once we have received the following:

  1. Completed application form
  2. Completed New Student Questionnaire for the level to which you are applying
  3. Application Fee

Admission to our program is based upon classroom availability and with consideration to age and gender ratios. With the understanding that consistency and continuity are vital to young children’s optimal development, admissions preference is given to families whose intention is to remain with West Hills Montessori for the full three year Montessori cycle which includes the Kindergarten year.
