The Financial Aid Process
Providing quality early childhood education is expensive, but we believe Montessori education should be available to all children, regardless of their families’ income. Hawai’i Montessori Schools is able to offer financial aid through grants from the McInerny Foundation, G.N., Wilcox Foundation, and parent/school fundraising. Our resources are limited, however, and we will distribute available funds on a sliding scale and a first come basis. The time and energy that parents contribute is a key factor in making our fund-raisers successful and financial aid possible.
