About SpiceBush Montessori

Spicebush Montessori School follows the principles set out by Maria Montessori over 100 years ago. The heart of the Montessori Method is providing children with an accepting and nurturing space to learn at their own pace. We guide and support children through the use of specialized materials that isolate concepts and encourage exploration. Learn more about the Montessori Method here.

To assist a child we must provide {them} with an environment which will enable {them} to develop freely. -

At Spicebush Montessori School, we are utilizing a family individualized tuition model (FIT) for our full day Montessori program (8:30 am-3pm, September-June). Use your gross income and family size to determine your tuition level. We reserve slots at each tier to enroll families of varying income levels. Caregivers at Tuition D are encouraged to apply for a child care subsidy from the state of Pennsylvania (click here for more info). Additionally, $200 monthly transportation stipends are available for families at this tuition level. Please reach out to us at information@spicebushmontessori.org if you have any questions about our tuition system.
