Terms and Conditions

ANNEXURE A

Dear Montessori School Owner,

COMPULSORY CHILDREN’S LEVY PAYMENT

At the 2005 AGM it was unanimously agreed by the school owners and principals that a levy be placed on all children in Montessori Schools so that the work carried out by the executive committee (ExCo) could be funded. A further increase to the child levy was accepted at the 2016 AGM.

The idea is that the levy is either recovered directly from the parents or that the amount within be added to next year's fees and then handed over to SAMA. Schools that really cannot afford the levy can apply for exemption in writing to the ExCo. Schools will be invoiced for the amount of R5 (five rand) per child per month. The Child

Levy payment can be paid for by choosing one of two options:

1. The levy payment can be paid once per annum (January to December) at the end of January each year – the number of children at the beginning of January will determine the amount paid,

OR

2. The levy payment can be made once a quarter as one quarter of the annual fees calculated at the beginning of January.

When payment for Child Levy is made, please use SCHOOL NAME+LEVY as the reference, and email your proof. If you have any queries, please contact the SAMA Administrator on admin@samontessori.org.za

4. Schools should employ faculty that meets the legal requirements and are able to maintain the Montessori prepared environment and deliver the SAMA Montessori curriculum.

5. School members must agree to work towards full compliance with the requirements of each tier membership within the predetermined timeframe.

6. Schools must prove that they are either registered with all the relevant departments, or have made every reasonable effort to do so.
