The Foundation Board updates the rates for each new school year. The new rates are communicated to parents with the re-enrollment requests. Ecole des Nations (Montessori pedagogy) is a Foundation whose only resources come from school fees paid by parents for their child's education. It bears heavy fixed costs and large salary costs for its qualified staff, regardless of the number of pupils. The Foundation Board which manages it must therefore be strict in the management of its finances and its debtors.
** The document “Contract between the School and Parents”, which accompanies the “Financial Conditions” the “Admission Conditions” and the “Parents Manual”, must be signed by parents before registration and entry to the School becomes final. Otherwise, registration will not be accepted.
