Why is Montessori so expensive compared to conventional schools?

Montessori programs are normally more expensive to organize and run than conventional classrooms due to the extensive teacher education needed to become certified and the very high cost of purchasing the educational materials and beautiful furniture needed to equip each Montessori classroom.

Montessori is not always more expensive. Tuition costs depend on many factors, including the cost of the various elements that go into running a particular school, such as the cost of the buildings and grounds, teacher salaries, the size of the school (in general, larger schools tend to be more cost-effective to run than small ones), the programs it offers, and whether the school receives a subsidy payment from a sponsoring church, charity, or government agency.
