Teaching Philosophy

Montessori

Is the Montessori Program the Right Choice for My Child?

A successful student demonstrates:

  • a willingness and capacity to work independently
  • an ability to be self-directed
  • academic success through engagement in Alberta Programs of Study using the Montessori philosophy and methodology
  • an appreciation for use of hands-on learning with a diminished focus on homework

Characteristics of the Montessori Program

  • Emphasis on intrinsic motivation and student choice
  • Intentional learning environments designed to facilitate self-directed learning
  • Where possible, multi-aged classrooms are provided, so that children develop trusting relationships within a peer cohort
  • Working with children of differing ages encouraging leadership skills and collaboration
  • Montessori teachers hold an Alberta teaching certificate and Montessori teacher training
  • Beautifully prepared Montessori materials extend learning

** Entry into the Montessori Program takes place in Kindergarten and Grade 1 only, unless a child has continuous documented Montessori experience (space dependent)
