Do you belong to a union? Take advantage of your union membership and get money back when you buy a home. If you are an active or retired union member or the parent or child of one, you may be eligible for exclusive home financing benefits through a major lender.

On top of $500 back at closing, there is a Mortgage Assistance component to the program. If you become unemployed or disabled or locked out, the product has a provision to pay your mortgage during this time period. This program applies to purchasing a new home or refinancing your current home with this major lender. Here are the main components of the program:

• The lender will provide the union member with a $500 award card upon closing on the mortgage.

• First-Time Home Buyers will receive an additional $500 award card. That is up to $1,000 back just for buying your dream home.

• Mortgage Assistance is also part of the program. This mortgage product also provides an interest-free loan or grant, if you become unemployed, disabled or locked out. Peace of mind in case the unthinkable happens.

If you are not a union member, lenders are getting creative for all homebuyers. Take advantage of creative new lending programs to buy your first home, move up to a larger home to meet the demands of an ever growing family or finally buy your dream home. Rates are on the rise and you need to find a way to get the home of your dreams now.

Keystone Montessori

Teacher Pily Pantoja helps Sarah Wang, 4, with the addition snake game at Keystone Montessori on Thursday, Sept. 4, 2014.

Keystone Montessori has come a long way since its founding in 1995. Back then it was operated out of the founder’s home before eventually moving on to rent rooms from Horizon Presbyterian Church. It was only in 2000 that they had gained a strong enough enrollment to move into the facility where they currently reside on Liberty Lane, just off Desert Foothills Parkway and across from the Ahwatukee Foothills Family YMCA.

The school services students as young as 18 years old, as part of their toddler program, and as old as ninth-graders. The current enrollment is around 320 students, who all have access to Spanish, music and arts programs in addition to the full Montessori curriculum.

“We provide an authentic Montessori education which focuses on the independence and whole development of the child, including academic as well as social and emotional growth,” said head of school Cindy Maschoff. “We want our students to become independent citizens of the world.”

The school will be taking the time to present the concept of Montessori education to the public Jan. 29 and 30. At the presentations the school will provide a clear understanding of what Montessori education looks like at each level of education. Those wanting to attend should plan on going to both meetings, with the Jan. 29 meeting going from 6-7 p.m. and the Jan. 30 meeting from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The meetings require attendees to RSVP, which can be done by emailing laura@keystonemontessori.com.
