Hoboken Montessori School Enrollment Policies
Enrolling your child at HMS: HMS uses TADS (www.tads.com), a tuition management services company, to process enrollment contracts and payments for our families. For new and returning students, a tuition deposit of $1,500 is due with the enrollment contract in order to secure your child’s spot. In addition, there is an annual enrollment fee per student. The tuition deposit, enrollment fee, and the TADS fee (if applicable) are non-refundable and non-transferable. We ask parents to take this commitment seriously before enrolling, as these fees secure your child’s spot in the program and are not refundable under any circumstance. All students enrolling during the school year will be charged prorated tuition and full fees. All payment plans begin on April 1, 2023.
Tuition Agreement: Hoboken Montessori School requires a commitment for the academic school year from September to June as the school commits to staff and resources based on contracted schedules. Therefore, HMS programs require a financial commitment to tuition, fees, and contracted childcare for the full school year. There will be no refund, credit, adjustment, or remission of fees or tuition for any reason, including but not limited to absence, withdrawal, or dismissal of the student from Hoboken Montessori School except as provided in the Voluntary Withdrawal provision of the tuition agreement.
Payment Plans: Families must use TADS for all payments. TADS accepts automatic bank payments from a checking/savings account only. There is an annual TADS processing fee ranging from approximately $40 - $55 and monthly installment fees depending on the payment plan selected. A discount of 1% on the tuition balance is offered for the one payment plan. Late fees and returned check fees apply. All tuition payments must be complete by January 2nd of the present academic school year.
WHAT PARENTS SAY
"It’s really hard to put into words how incredibly happy we have been with our experience at HMS. Our daughter learned and grew so much in her time at HMS and we are so thankful that we could be a part of this school, which truly felt like a family to us. Our teacher was nothing short of amazing and we are so thankful that we were placed in her class. Our daughter eagerly looked forward to going to school every day. Often times, she would be waiting at the door with her backpack on, ready to leave so she could start her day with Ms. Katja. I can confidently say that the hardest part of leaving Hoboken is leaving the community of HMS. We will forever remember our time at the school and cannot recommend them enough to all families considering HMS."
