Child-Centric Design, And The Loving Guidance Expert Teachers

Children experience Sensory Learning, Applied Practical Life Skills, And More...

Montessori Design is
Intentional And Inviting
For Children

Child-sized furniture and accessible materials create an atmosphere that communicates to a child that they belong. Low shelves lined with books and other carefully chosen materials invites independent exploration.

A Mixing of Ages
Encourages Inclusion and
Peer to Peer Learning

Mixing older and younger students creates a family of learners who support and care for each other. Older children have the opportunity to serve as mentors and take leadership roles, generating confidence, while younger learners feel cared for and included.

Activities That are
Self Correcting
Build Self-Esteem

Materials are intrinsic teachers, and thanks to careful design, no verbal instruction, or even modeling, is required. Montessori materials self-teach and encourage independent learning.

Mastering Practical Life Skills
They’ll Apply for a Lifetime

To foster independence and respect for the environment and others, they’ll be expected to dust, clean up after themselves, tie shoes, fasten buttons, greet others appropriately, say please, excuse me and thank you, and learn how to ask for help.

Your Child’s Senses
are Engaged in
Unraveling Their World

The Sensorial Curriculum helps children focus on physical attributes while exploring variations in materials like height, width, aroma, taste, weight, texture, temperature, shades of colour, and sound. This self-led discovery introduces them to abstraction and pre-math sorting skills.

Math Materials That
Help Children Naturally
Grasp New Concepts

Learning math operations begins with hands-on manipulations of materials like rods, beads, spindles, cubes, cards, and counters. Invite your child to visualize the whole structure and to add, multiply, subtract eventually, and divide.

Responsive Teachers
and Storytime Set the
Foundation for Pre-Literacy

Using accurate vocabulary, conversations with peers and adults are a natural part of classroom life. Time is devoted every day to the reading of books, poetry, and singing to introduce new sounds and contexts.

Second Language
Acquisition Are A Part
Of The Curriculum

Weekly French lessons that incorporate puppets, music, and games expose children to new sounds and lexicon. At the same time, listening skills are developed through music, silence games, and tone matching activities, paving the way to deeper language comprehension.

Hands-On Observation of
Plants and Animals Support
The Montessori Method

In Life Science, children use models, specimens, pictures, classroom pets, and plants to begin to identify, match, and classify. Further investigation reveals the life cycles of plants and what role each of them plays in supporting healthy habits and respect for the environment.

Learning About The World
and its Diversity to
Expand Horizons

Geography includes an introduction to the land, air and water, the continents, and an introduction to the globe’s different climates. To put their knowledge in action, they’ll make maps and flags, dress in costumes, and dance to music from near and far to garner an appreciation of culture.

Play is Paramount in
Maintaining Physical
and Mental Health

We’re committed to helping children develop their fine and gross motor movement. As such, weather permitting, children enjoy a minimum of two hours outside daily to take advantage of water play, riding tricycles, and kicking up in the sandpit so they can strengthen growing muscles and enjoy the outdoors.

Hands-on Art and Word
Working Coaxes Creativity
and Fine Motor Skills

Drawing, painting, crayon work, collage, working with clay, cutting, pasting, designing, modeling, and many other activities help children explore their imaginations and express themselves. Handling the materials and tools also strengthen fine motor skills and self-control.

A Music and Movement
Directress Introduces the
Children to Sound and Dance

We house a wide range of instruments and world music to enhance the children’s appreciation of sound and the directress visits every week to guide the children through listening, singing, dancing, and making their music, nurturing the mind-body connection.

Learning About Food
Values and Preparation
Instills Healthy Habits

We teach children basic food groups through hands-on activities with real food. They also prepare a variety of globally inspired snacks weekly to enjoy together and take pride in the work and the fresh, healthy flavors of the choices they made.
