(ST) Montessori education to open another centre for children from lower-income families

Starting in 2012, Modern Montessori International (MMI), a chain with 30 centres in Singapore, will open another centre for children from lower-income families. -- PHOTO: Modern Montessori Pre-school By Stacey Chia Starting in 2012, Modern Montessori International (MMI), a chain with 30 centres in Singapore, will open another centre for children from lower-income families. They are looking to take in about 50 to 80 students at the new centre which will likely be located in either Jurong or Yishun. The Montessori educational concept is considered a more premium form of preschool education and parents typically pay an average of $800 for half-day and $1100 for full-day sessions a month. However at this new centre, parents will only have to pay $100 if they earn $3000 or less. Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus. blog comments powered by Disqus
