It may seem counter-intuitive to you that I make a gift to Webster Montessori School when I also pay tuition. It’s not that the cost of tuition has no financial impact– it does; especially for two kids, year after year. It adds up.
But on the other side of the equation is something far greater – the opportunity for my children to be someplace wonderful.
This school means more to me than I think any of the staff realize. What started as a one-year emergency plan has grown into a three year commitment. The school helped us through a difficult transition in our family. Teachers listened to our concerns and watched our kids for signs of distress. Office staff eased us through the routine. Parents were friendly and welcoming.
I am grateful that Webster Montessori School is a place where my kids feel happy and secure. I entrust them to the school each day without a single concern for their well-being. I know they are in an environment where they are free to lose themselves in learning.
When I think of all I receive, it is evident that tuition is the least possible payment I can make. So it is with gratitude that I make an annual gift to Webster Montessori School, because what they do for me is priceless.
