Principal's Message


Mr. John H. Bailey, Director of Education and Academy Principal

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Rowntree Montessori Schools!

As the largest and longest-running Montessori School in Brampton, Rowntree taps into children’s natural curiosity and love for learning, allowing the freedom to learn at their own pace.  Montessori is a holistic approach to learning and education, with the primary goal of helping children to develop their potential to the fullest extent, not only in the cognitive area, but also physically, emotionally, and socially.  Combining the Montessori-based principals with the structure and philosophy of a traditional education, RMS provides the best of both worlds. 

With small classes and enrichment infused into every program, it comes as no surprise that RMS students have a strong record of success, and consistently perform well on both internal and external academic competitions.  A wide variety of extra-curricular activities also helps to further broaden the rich RMS school experience.

It’s never too soon to start planning for your child’s academic future, and RMS welcomes children from 12 months to 6 years of age at our 4 Pre-Primary campuses.  Students from Kindergarten to Grade 8 attend our Academy campus, which is equipped with the professional staff, equipment, technology, and facilities (including gym) to provide a fulfilling school life.  With extended care offerings beginning as early as 7 am, and ending as late as 6 pm, parents/guardians can go about their days, knowing that their children are in good hands.

Please accept our invitation to visit Rowntree Montessori Schools by attending one of our many Open Houses throughout the year, or by contacting our Registrar Christine Peel at   905-790-3838 or email admin@rowntreemontessori.com.  We look forward to seeing you here!

Stories & Testimonials


Model United Nations (MUN) Conference

Model United Nations Conference at Appleby College

On Saturday April 18th, Rowntree Montessori Schools Academy students participated in the 10th Annual Model United Nations (MUN) Conference at Appleby College in Oakville, Ontario. Together with 230 middle and high school students from all over Southern Ontario, our MUN group of student delegates from Grades 6, 7 and 8 participated and came out with flying colours!

The 10 students from RMS who participated in the conference were assigned to 7 different committees, such as NATO, World Health Organization and the United Nations Environment Program. Each student represented the interests of a different country, and negotiated with high school students from all over the GTA to resolve global issues. To make things more interesting, there was also a committee based on the Ministry of Magic from Harry Potter, and another based on the popular TV series “Under the Dome”!

Our students rigorously trained and prepared for several weeks prior to the conference. They debated various complex global issues, such as environmental issues, relieving famine in developing nations, limiting nuclear weapons throughout the world, and putting a stop to child labour, to name a few. The students skilfully navigated through question and answer periods and were often introduced to crisis scenarios in which any resolutions they had been working towards would be shut down. These scenarios included the collapse of a factory that resulted in fatal injuries, and an oil spill off the coast of Mexico that had to immediately be managed. Students adapted very well to these situations, and were able to steer through the obstacles and challenges that arose.

Throughout the conference, each committee was presented with a sudden crisis, for which they could not prepare. In one such situation, Jessica S, who was representing Myanmar, was faced with finding countries to accept millions of refugees fleeing her country. She successfully negotiated with representatives from Vietnam and China, who agreed to help support Myanmar during this crisis.

Many of our students were also directly involved in writing and presenting resolutions. Great work, team!

While for many of our veteran Grade 8 students who had in past years participated in MUN conferences, this experience was a breeze, they additionally had the opportunity to implement their leadership skills as they assisted the Grade 6s and Grade 7s throughout the research, composition and conferencing processes. RMS participation has included MUN events at Trent University, Cedar Brae Collegiate, King’s Christian Collegiate, L’Amoreaux Collegiate, and most recently, Appleby College.

In keeping with the celebrated RMS values of Responsibility, Ambition, and Teamwork, Rowntree’s MUN delegates continue to experience character-building activities that will strengthen their positions as fully contributing citizens of the future.  We are very proud toknow that past RMS students, including Hector, Safeeya, and Christopher, have taken their skills and interests in MUN from their experience at Rowntree through to their University years and beyond!

Our MUN coordinators are very proud of the hard work of our delegates, and for spending 10 hours of their Saturday to help make the world a better place! On behalf of RMS teachers, administrative staff, parents, and MUN Coaches, we would like to congratulate all members of this year’s Model United Nations team for their many successes!




Mrs. Laureen Harper's Visit to Rowntree Montessori Schools

Mrs. Laureen Harper enjoys student performances at Rowntree Montessori Schools

Rowntree Montessori Schools’ staff and students were very excited and honoured to welcome two very special guests to the Rowntree Montessori Schools’ Academy Campus today. Mrs. Laureen Harper (@LaureenHarper), the spouse of Prime Minister Stephen Harper, together with Mr. Parm Gill (@ParmGill), the current Member of Parliament for the Brampton-Springdale riding, visited our school and attended a special assembly hosted by our students.

Rowntree staff and students planned an entertaining assembly to showcase our belief in promoting individual talents, embracing multiculturalism, and encouraging social acceptance through anti-bullying ideals. In keeping, Mrs. Harper is a well-known advocate for acceptance and tolerance, and noted just how topical the Grade 8 Class presentation was on this sensitive current events issue.

Kindness. That was the message that Mrs. Harper delivered to the students of Rowntree Montessori Schools when she addressed them during the assembly. Her words to our students were quite profound.  “Be kind…it may sound easy, but sometimes it’s not…Being kind makes you feel good, and makes the people around you feel good”. Mrs. Harper took the opportunity to remind students that kindness can have a very positive impact, and we should all endeavour to bring a little bit more kindness into our lives.

Since arriving in Ottawa in 2006, Mrs. Harper has been a strong advocate for anti-bullying initiatives, and she works closely with several organizations to educate youth and their parents about bullying. We at Rowntree are very proud of our anti-bullying programs, and we were privileged to show the Rowntree standard of inclusiveness to Mrs. Harper and Mr. Gill.

The Junior choir, the grade 4 class, the grade 8 class, Richard R. and Aaryan K. were very excited at the opportunity to display their talents for Mrs. Harper and Mr. Gill.  We would like to extend a very special thank you to these students for their wonderful performances, and to the staff members who helped arrange them.

At Rowntree Montessori Schools, we strive to develop social awareness in our students.  We believe in Mrs. Harper’s message of kindness, and truly thank her for promoting this message to our students.
