HOURS AND TUITION
The following information is valid through August 2020
BIM’s Children’s House for students ages 2.5 – 6 years is offered as a year-round 12 month program with varying schedules available during our 2019-2020 academic year. Our current academic year runs from September 2019 through August 2020.
School Hours & Tuition
BIM is open from 8:00am to 6:00pm, Monday through Friday with schedule and hour options listed below. A consistent routine and schedule best serve your child’s overall developmental progress, so we do not offer partial week schedules. Our half-day option from 8am-12:30pm is open for 2.5 and 3 year old students only, as older students will benefit from the afternoon work period. Tuition fees are annual, and can be paid in full on the first day of the school year with a 5% discount (for mid-year start dates, 50% of school year tuition must remain), or in 10 monthly installments between September and June.
Annual Materials Fee
A $1000 non-refundable annual materials fee for the academic year is due upon enrollment and may be pro-rated according to start date. This fee covers materials, activities, special snacks, cultural celebrations, and in-school enrichment activities.
One-Time Enrollment Fee
Upon your child's enrollment, you will be billed a $500 non-refundable one-time enrollment fee.
Annual tuition paid in full: 5%
Deposits for the 2019-2020 year will be due in June to secure placement as part of re-enrollment. Deposits are equal to one month of the 2019-2020 tuition rates.
School Holidays & Breaks
BIM is closed 1 week for Thanksgiving, 2 weeks for winter recess, 1 week for spring recess, and 1 week in August for teacher in-service week. All other school holidays are noted on the academic calendar, which is included in the enrollment packet upon acceptance.
All fees are conducted through your FACTS account. Any checks should be made payable to American International Montessori School (AIM).
