We are a progressive, education-based Montessori preschool. We embrace every child's uniqueness and provide a variety of opportunities for each child to flourish. Our belief is that children can be independant and self confident with the right guidance and support. Our teachers will foster independance and self confidence in your child.
We do not answer our phone during school hours (8:30-3:30), please email us or leave a phone message.
From our theme based circle times, to weekly art projects, introductory music, basic French, from math and language manipulatives to our science corner, these are just a few experiences that all our programs provide.
Come and see everything our school has to offer!
What Our Montessori Offers
The Montessori method aims for the fullest development of your child.
The teacher recognizes your child’s perceptive stages and encourages growth by introducing materials and activities which are designed to stimulate their intellect.
Your child works at their own optimum level in an environment where beauty and orderliness are emphasized.
A spontaneous love of "work" develops/is discovered as your child is given the freedom (within boundaries) to make their own choices.
We foster your child's enthusiasm for learning and guide them in teaching themselves to become independent, all without interfering with their natural desires to explore and learn.
Your child’s freedom, responsibility, social and intellectual development will spontaneously flourish.
Our Montessori school uses an education-based curriculum which offers a traditional but progressive environment. This allows children to learn by exploring and moving from concrete hands-on experiences to more abstract concepts.
We embrace the concept that at an early stage of development, children benefit greatly when they are introduced to the Montessori method of learning.
"The education of even a small child, therefore, does not aim at preparing him for school, but for life."
- Maria Montessori.
In September, all new and returning children start at our preschool in our gradual entry program. The schedule will be given out beforehand so you can prepare.
Please know that it is not unusual for you or your child to feel anxious in the first few days of school, but we will help your child to have a positive first experience. There might be tears, but crying rarely lasts more than a few days, especially since our programs run on consecutive days. The number of days a child stays with us does not impact them as much as the length of time they stay.
We are prepared for separation anxiety and will do our very best to reassure you and comfort your child. On the rare case when we cannot calm a child (after 15 minutes) we will contact you to come and get your child. Therefore, we ask that for the first few weeks, whoever is dropping off or picking up your child, stays in the area and is on time at drop off and pick up.
Be assured that the feelings you and your child have about starting preschool are very normal.
