OMS Montessori is a not-for profit organization with a mandate to provide our students with the highest quality Montessori education while remaining sustainable for our current and prospective parents. Tuition is used to cover the operating costs of the school. Subsides are available from the City of Ottawa and OMS Montessori also has a bursary for families in need. For more information, visit our Bursary page.

Our tuition fees are as all-inclusive as possible so we are not asking parents for additional money throughout the year.
