The school runs from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Holidays are based on the Bordeaux’s Academy schedule.
A reception is provided in the morning from 8:00 am and in the evening until 5:30 pm.
For lunch, parents don’t have to prepare their children’s meals anymore. We fortunately found a catering solution. A local professional makes 100% bio and vegetarian meals for the children now.
For the children living in Villeneuve-sur-Lot or Bergerac, the Loupiot's shuttle can pick them up if there are enough children. The child could only do the morning or the afternoon trip, or both according to the room available in the shuttle (for cost, see the Fee chapter).
The map shows the geographical origin of families with one or more children attending the Montessori School "Les Loupiots". Some carpools already exist between some parents, and others could be created as needed. Ask Audrey and Yann.
It should be noted that school in France, even public, is not free! This is the case for both national education and private schools. The cost is also funded greatly through your taxes, whether you are taxable or not.
Tuition in Montessori also has a cost that can be much lower than the cost of a so-called classical school (national education, for example).
According to the French Ministry of Education, in 2018, the cost of a primary school child in a school under contract with the State is estimated at 6820 euros per year (ie 620 euros per month over 11 months).
In our school, the fees for first child of a sibling are 460 euros per month (over 11 months) and if he/she has brothers or sisters who join our school the same year, the price will decrease (see below).
Montessori School « Les Loupiots » is a private school ‘hors-contrat’.
This means that it is independent and does not receive any help or subsidy from the French state. We must therefore cover rent, salaries, heating, materials and other expenses by relying on parents. It is therefore a strong choice and a militant act that you do for your child by choosing another form of education, which has respect for your child and their individual rhythms.
To participate in the running costs of the school, the fees are as follows :
Only for 3-6 years old children, a part-time formula is created for parents who would like it. We will receive the child two whole days in the week instead of 4 : these days will be defined together.
