How are the funds raised through The JBMA Fund used?
The JBMA Fund supports the Montessori curriculum at our school. We purchase only the best quality Montessori materials for our students to use. These materials last a long time, but through repeated use, get worn down and need to be replaced. The JBMA Fund helps maintain these materials and supports their replacement.
A successful annual helps subsidize the cost of professional development for our teachers keeping them at the forefront of trends in education and within the Montessori community.
The JBMA Fund also furnishes the monies required to maintain the grounds and buildings, which serve our children’s innate desire to explore and discover in the unique and engaging learning environment that Bruno Montessori provides.
I may not be in a position to make a large gift to the school. What would you recommend?
Every gift to the school is meaningful, no matter how big or small. Whether it’s $25 or $10,000, your support is necessary to ensure that Bruno Montessori continues to provide a unique educational experience for every student.
Why does Bruno Montessori not charge the actual cost of educating a child at the school?
Attending a private school can be costly and we want to remove as many barriers as possible for families who want to attend our school. Charging families the actual cost of attending will greatly reduce our student population, only increasing the cost. We firmly believe in the Montessori method as an educational platform and want to share it with students and their families. By not charging the full cost, we can welcome more families into our school community.
