The association Galemo is run and financed by all club members, that is the families. Each family pays a yearly membership fee. The board is responsible for the funding, the employment of the educational personnel and for the consistency in teaching, following the inspiration and guidelines as laid down by M. Montessori.

Most of the budget comes from the monthly school fee and a small portion is financed both by advancements of the federation and sponsorship or earnings from special school events.

The school fee is decided in the general assembly in order to be able to meet all liabilities, like rent, energy costs or personnel costs. Therefore the school fee needs to be revised and adjusted yearly.

The current prices for the school fee are in the table below.

Registration fee: Euro 300,– per child, once payable, Primaria 1
  Euro 600,– per child, once payable, Primaria 2
  Euro 900,– per child, once payable, Sekundaria 1
Security guarantee: Euro 1.500,– per child, once payable
Membership fee: Euro 100,– per family, yearly

Cost for meals currently is 5,50 € per meal. For 2023/2024, this will be a monthly meal cost for approx. 80,-€ . Cost reduction for sick days is not applicable, as the administrative effort would be too much.

To cover the costs of excursions, entrance tickets, etc. an amount of €100 will be deducted at the beginning of each school year. If this amount is used up during the school year, an additional contribution must be paid. Any remaining balance at the end of the school year will be carried over to the next school year. If the school child leaves the school, the remaining amount will be refunded. Furthermore, an amount of € 38 per semester will be charged for teaching material (exercises, books, ...).

Terms and prices for after school care can be found in this table.

School fee will increase with a small yearly index and has to be paid 12 times/year, after school care is charged 10 times/year.
