The school program is a holistic Montessori based education program that guides students through the various curriculum activities within a child-centered environment. This independent nurturing ambience allows for the child to develop a sense of wonder through hands on exploration using the Montessori materials. Children learn social graces as they interact and collaborate with one another.
As a kindergarten we follow the guidelines of the Day Nursery Act governed by the Ministry of Child and Youth Services of Ontario. Our ratios are maintained at one qualified adult per 8 students up to a class size of 24 students.
School is closed for 2 weeks in December for Holiday Vacation, 1 week in March for School Break, all Ottawa Carleton School Board statutory holidays and professional development days. Please see school calendar for more details.
There are two scheduled Parent-Teacher interviews in November and May.
Please see calendar for specific dates and times.
