Child Care Fee Reduction Initiative Program

Community Montessori School is pleased to announce that starting April 1st, 2018 we are now a part of the Fee Reduction Program. The program was implemented by the provincial government and we opted in to participate.


This program allows for us to reduce our fees and pass these savings on directly to parents.


We are very excited to be a part of this very important new funding program.
