Discover Our Programs

Our program is based on the principles of the Montessori Method developed by Dr. Maria Montessori. These programs are individually structured and built to unlock a child’s full potential while allowing them to learn at their own pace along with attention and guidance from our qualified staff within our enriched purpose-built learning environment.

Our Montessori pre-school and kindergarten is different than a babysitting service or play school. It is a place that uses a special cycle of learning, designed to take advantage of the child’s sensitive years between three and six when the child is able to absorb information from an enriched environment where the learning program is purposefully structured with the child in mind. These programs are able to better prepare the child for a lifetime of learning and success.

Primary Program

Our primary program allows children from age 3 through 6, using the Montessori Philosophy to educate your child.

Dr. Montessori believed children learn best during particular sensitive periods.  These are periods where children experience a fascination to learn a particular skill, such as numbers, colours, music, language, etc. We teach according to a child’s stage of development – not their age. This prevents learning without drudgery and boredom, and results in creating beings who enjoy a love for learning.

The individual curriculum is based upon different areas such as:

  • Practical life exercises, which include activities for the development of fine motor skills, one to one correspondence, coordination and purposeful movement.
  • Sensorial refinement, which will help develop a sense of order and refinement of your child’s senses.
  • Mathematics: are taught from the concrete to the abstract with manipulative material to ensure that concepts are understood.
  • Cultural areas: allow for self-expression and worldly awareness

Unlike a traditional school, the Montessori program provides a more hands-on approach to its concepts in a way that helps foster an early enthusiasm for learning. Within the Montessori class the child finds joy and independence in their endeavours. Children have the freedom to choose work, thus gaining a connection and enjoyment in all that they do. Your child will benefit from the multi age classroom that aims for students supporting and mentoring each other, thus enabling independence.  Children learn at their own pace which allows one to build a solid foundation in their academic studies.
