Any entrepreneur planning to open up a Montessori school should first decide upon the objective of the venture. Various options available in this regard may include: * To plan a Montessori school with emphasis on Daycare services. * To establish a school as a Preparatory School for other reputed Primary Level Schools. * To establish a Montessori School with incremental expansion of services into primary and high school level. * Based on income level, the school can position itself for any of the following three broad income groups; THE HIGH INCOME GROUP: The upper income group segment is quality and reputation conscious.
