Are you reviewing options for your Toddler, Preschool or JK, SK child? Contact us to book a personal tour of our school. Seeing is believing! As only one of a very few not-for-profit Montessori schools in Canada, established in 1972, we now happily serve the children of our first students.
Our families tell us they enroll and continue to enroll because of four aspects of the programs at MSC; Montessori philosophy and educational approach; wealth of learning materials; low pupil to teacher ratio and experienced teachers with specialize training.
At the Montessori School of Cambridge, children are:
- given a nurturing, orderly, prepared learning environment
- guided by sequential, age-appropriate curriculum
- recognized and known as individuals eager to learn
- granted freedom to choose their learning activities
- encouraged to work at their own pace and achieve their personal best
Toddler (18 months to 3 years)
Casa classes are made up of students between two and a half and six year olds. The primary goal of our Montessori early childhood program is to help each student reach full potential in all areas of life. Students chose activities shown by their Montessori teachers and repeat them independently or with their peers. The teacher also directs students to choose from different areas in the class to become more balanced and well rounded. With successful experiences, kids have increased self-confidence and independence. Skills are developed naturally as the child’s desire to learn leads him to repeat activities. In addition, the patterns of concentration, persistence and thoroughness established in early childhood produce a confident and competent learner in later years.
One of Dr. Montessori’s primary insights was that young children are engaged in a supremely creative act — that of creating the men and women they are to become! Compare The Montessori School of Cambridge with publicly-funded education.
Montessori pedagogy which guides the Montessori School of Cambridge and the programming offered at the school is consistent with “How Does Learning Happen?” Understanding the young child’s immense potential and extreme vulnerability is key to the role of the adult in our early learning and child care for the 18 month to 6 year-olds whom we serve. “Everything we do with children is education for Life.” We see children as unique, extremely capable and intrinsically motivated through inborn curiosity, Dr. Montessori called the phenomenon “the absorbent mind”. They come to us with diverse experiences; we see them as constructors of their own knowledge.
MSC welcomes and encourages applications from people with disabilities. Accommodations are available on request for candidates taking part in all aspects of the selection process.
