"The most important period of life is not the age of university studies, but the first one, the period from birth to the age of six. For that is the time when man’s intelligence itself, his greatest implement is being formed."
- Dr. Maria Montessori
Founded in 1973, Ellesmere Montessori School has been serving children and families for over 45 years. Our private school is nestled within the walls of West Ellesmere Community Church in Scarborough, Ontario.
Our bright and sunny classrooms allow for an easy flow between the three different environments, helping to build a strong school community. Fundamental to this community is the mutual commitment to the Montessori principles between our school and our families.
Our curriculum and activities are based on the educational pedagogy of Dr. Maria Montessori and guided by the principles of the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI).
Visit us by booking a tour of our private school and child care centre. We look forward to meeting you.
Our mission is to provide an educational programme for children 18 months to 2.5 years (Toddler Community), children 2.5-6 years (Preschool), and children 6-12 years (Elementary) of age, in which a child prepares a firm foundation for a lifetime of creative and purposeful learning.
Our Toddler Community and Casa are AMI accredited through Montessori Quality Assurance.Ellesmere Montessori is in the process of having our Elementary class accredited. MQA is the organization established to help Montessori programmes uphold the criteria of the Association Montessori Internationale across Canada.
