In order to maintain services over the entire year, it is essential that the annual tuition fees be assured. It is understood that no reduction or remission of fees can be allowed for absence or withdrawal unless the family is relocating outside of St. Mary’s County area. In such case, Bay Montessori requires 30 days written notice for early withdrawals. After April 1st, no exceptions are allowed for reduction or remission of fees.
Each child enters the school on a thirty-day trial basis. During the thirty-day period, the parent or the school may recommend withdrawal without penalty. There is no refund for the 30 day trial period. After thirty-days, if the teacher decides the child would function best in another type of environment, the child may withdraw without penalty.
