    Curriculum

     

    Traditional, Montessori

     


     

    Curriculum pace

     
    Accelerated
    The main curriculum accelerates beyond the pace of the provincial one; ALL students do the work of OLDER public-school peers in tangible and measurable ways. This accelerated pace is maintained by the teachers and school, (through textbook selection, topic selection, grading, assignment standards and expectations, etc).
     
    Standard-enriched
    Broadly-speaking, the main curriculum -- like that of most schools -- paces the provincially-outlined one. This pace is steady and set by the teachers and school. The curriculum might still be enriched in various ways: covering topics more in-depth and with more vigor than the provincial one, or covering a broader selection of topics.

     

    Academic culture

     
    Rigorous
    A school with a “rigorous” academic culture places a high value on academic performance, and expects their students to do the same. This does not mean the school is uncaring, unsupportive, or non-responsive -- far from it. A school can have a rigorous academic culture and still provide excellent individual support. It does mean, however, the school places a particular emphasis on performance -- seeking the best students and challenging them to the fullest extent -- relative to a normal baseline. High expectations and standards – and a challenging yet rewarding curriculum – are the common themes here. Keep in mind this classification is more relevant for the older grades: few Kindergarten classrooms, for example, would be called “rigorous”.
     
    Supportive
    A school with a “supportive” academic culture focuses more on process than short-term outcomes: academic performance is a welcomed side-benefit, but not the driving focus. This does not mean the school lacks standards, or has low expectations for its students: a school can have a supportive academic culture and still light the fire of ambition in its students. It does mean, however, the school provides a less intensive culture than schools with a “rigorous” academic classification, and is focused more simply on instilling a love of learning and life-long curiosity.

    Preschool/K curriculum

     
    Montessori
    Montessori programs aimed at preschool and Kindergarten- aged children allow young learners to choose which “tasks” or activities interest them. These tasks centre around special Montessori puzzles -- the essential features of these puzzles being they contain a “right answer” and allow for self-correction. A strong emphasis is therefore placed on learning being concrete and rooted in practical experience, along with children developing a sense of self-sufficiency and confidence. Specially trained teachers act as guides, introducing children to progressively more difficult materials when appropriate. A Montessori classroom is typically very calm and orderly, with children working alone or, sometimes, in small groups.

    Our Take

    Our Take

    RICHMOND HILL MONTESSORI PRIVATE SCHOOL

    RHMS was established in 1986, and has grown considerably over the years to where it sits now with an annual student population of 600. That’s big in the world of private schooling, particularly given that the program only covers preschool through Grade 8. Size can be a strength, to be sure, and Richmond Hill is a prime example of that. The program is broad and deep, with extensive curricular and extracurricular offerings. The campus has been developed throughout the life of the school, and today is an example, in every way, of how good a facility school can be, both aesthetically and practically. Classroom appointments are up to date throughout, including in-class technology that incorporates a full range of instructional devices and applications. All resources are applied in sympathy with the core program of the school and the values that undergird it. And, despite the size of the student population as a whole, the segmentation of the primary and elementary programs, in consort with the low student to teacher ratios, the lived experience of the school is quite close-knit and personal. Over the past three decades plus RHMS has done a lot, and in all the right ways, and the school certainly lives up to its reputation.

    Message

    Dear Friends,

    Be it ever so beautiful. There’s no place like home. (L. Frank Baum)

    Richmond Hill Montessori Private School is my second home; and a home-away-from-home for our students and teachers.  Each morning when I arrive, I am reminded how fortunate I am to be here.

    The spirit thriving within these hallways is powerful. It’s a testament to the school’s culture, developed over decades of passion, friendships and education. Students, faculty, and parents form this incredible community; a community that is caring, compassionate and supportive – an environment truly fostering the love of learning.

    My own journey at RHMS began in the classroom, back in 2006. I have filled the shoes of many diverse positions, each with it an opportunity to learn about the school from another angle, and to understand the complexities of each role.

    It humbles me to have a steady stream of former students and alumni, returning to share their great feats, and many adventures. Knowing the considerable victories they achieve each year not only motivates me, but reinforces the notion our school’s community is empowering young minds to find ambition and purpose in life.

    Soon, my own children will be joining the RHMS community and walking its bustling, bright halls; they’ll witness all that RHMS has to offer, including innovative curriculum, cutting-edge resources, a variety of extra-curricular activities, enthusiastic peers, and a team of knowledgeable and supportive teachers. What a great joy it will be to watch my children grow, develop and find a sense of belonging here, like so many children before them have.  

    RHMS’ culture is organic; it is grown from within -- I want to thank our teachers and faculty. Your commitment to students’ well-being and your own professional development move me each day.

    And of course, thank you to the RHMS parents, who have continued to provide ongoing commitment and support. We remain dedicated to upholding our promise to you, “To nurture each child’s distinct talents and ensure every child feels comfortable, challenged and confident they can achieve anything.” By working together, we can encourage students to accomplish incredible things.

    For families interested in learning more about RHMS, I welcome and encourage you to visit and experience our programs first-hand. You too may find your home-away-from-home.

    C. Ingravalle

    Principal

    Selecting a day care for your child is one of the toughest decisions you make as a parent. I know that, being a mother myself and having two children of my own. As a Director in a Telecom company with a demanding job and two children, I wanted a place where my children would be safe and there would be a focus on learning for a better future. I could not find one with everything I wanted, so I decided to create one. 

    At SimplySmart we have created beautiful, spacious facilities that are carefully designed to keep a child’s needs in mind. We have created open spaces and an environment just like a home away from home for children aged 6 months to 4 years. SimplySmart is SIMPLE, it is a safe, interactive, meaningful, pleasant learning environment for your child. We focus on holistic development of a child in all aspects of physical, social and emotional development. Every child is encouraged to embrace and learn our core values of honesty, respect, gratitude & generosity, determination, compassion & responsibility.

      Our Take: primary curriculum type

      Our Take: primary curriculum type

      RICHMOND HILL MONTESSORI PRIVATE SCHOOL

      Traditional curricula tend to be very content-based and rooted in the core disciplines. It is a structured approach that involves the teacher delivering a unified curriculum through direct instruction. Students usually learn by observing and listening to their teacher, studying facts and concepts in textbooks, and completing both tests and written assignments - which challenge students to not only demonstrate their mastery of content but their ability to analyze and deconstruct it critically. Class discussions are also used to create critical dialogue around the content of the curriculum.


      Our Take: secondary curriculum type

      Our Take: secondary curriculum type

      RICHMOND HILL MONTESSORI PRIVATE SCHOOL

      Particularly popular in the younger grades (preschool to elementary), but sometimes available all the way up to high school, Montessori schools offer an alternative vision to the standard lesson format of most classrooms. Instead of listening to whole-class lessons, Montessori classrooms allow students to choose which "tasks" or activities interest them. These tasks centre around special Montessori puzzles - their essential feature being they contain a right answer and allow for selfcorrection. A strong emphasis is therefore placed on lessons being concrete and rooted in practical experience, along with students developing a sense of self-sufficiency, confidence and curiosity.

      What the school says about their curriculum

      RICHMOND HILL MONTESSORI PRIVATE SCHOOL

      At Richmond Hill Montessori Private School (RHMS), one of our directives is to bring the world into the classroom using a multitude of resources. The transformation of classroom into 'real world' requires not only physical resources such as textbooks, exercise books, maps, globes and an ongoing emphasis on incorporating technology into the classroom via everyday computer usage, presentations, smartboards, and other digital devices; it also requires very important abstract resources such as imagination, vision, and passion. These are all encouraged under the careful supervision of our nurturing staff. We believe that, together, these components are essential for a student's success in advancement of knowledge and development. RHMS is committed to remaining current and preparing its students to participate fully and effectively in today's society. That being said, it is our mission to ensure that the traditional core knowledge and the educational philosophy at the preschool and elementary levels has been, and will continue to be, consistent over time.

      What the school says

      RICHMOND HILL MONTESSORI PRIVATE SCHOOL

      The Montessori philosophy and method of teaching fosters a loving, independent environment tailored to the individual needs and development of each student. Our Montessori classrooms include students who are three, four, and five years of age, providing opportunities for learning, helping to create a sense of community where everyone contributes to and takes responsibility for the functioning and maintenance of the environment. The older children provide leadership and guidance, and act as models for the younger children; they benefit by helping the younger children, reinforcing skills and knowledge previously learned, and gain satisfaction and self-worth by helping others.

      SIMPLYSMART CHILD CARE & MONTESSORI

      Children at this age are curious and in pre-school/kindergarten they will learn shapes, numbers, counting and build their vocabulary. The pre-school/kindergarten program focuses on encouraging curiosity and building every development area for children like math and logical reasoning, scientific exploration, vocabulary development and outdoor skills. Children are engaged in independent work and activities in groups to build their social, language, math and literacy skills.

      Assisting children to learn how to manage their emotions will help the children be successful in the world around them. We discuss classroom rules to teach them how to respect others and materials around them. We introduce, encourage and practice new social skills such as, sharing, negotiation, self-assertion, managing frustrations, recognizing their need for moment of quiet time and empathy.

    Developmental
    Autism
    Refers to a range of conditions that involve challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, and speech and nonverbal communication. They also involve unique strengths and differences. For instance, there are persons with both low- and high-functioning autism (some claim the latter is identical to Asperger's syndrome).
    Asperger's Syndrome
    On the autism spectrum, Asperger's is considered quite mild in terms of symptoms. While traits can vary widely, many kids with Asperger's struggle with social skills. They also sometimes fixate on certain subjects and engage in repetitive behaviour.

    Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD)
    Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is an umbrella term used to describe the range of effects that can occur in an individual whose mother consumed alcohol during pregnancy. These may include growth deficits, facial anomalies, and damage to the central nervous system, which can lead to cognitive, behavioural, and other problems.
    Behavioral and Emotional

    roubled teens tend to have problems that are intense, persistent, and can lead to quite unpredictable behaviour. This can lead to behavioural and emotional issues, such as drug and alcohol abuse, criminal behaviour, eating disorders, depression, and anxiety.
    Clinical Depression
    This is a mental health disorder also called "major depression." It involves persistent feelings of sadness, loss, and anger. According to the Mayo Clinic, symptoms are usually severe enough to cause noticeable problems in relationships with others or in daily activities, such as school, work, or one's social life.
    Clinical anxiety
    This is a mood disorder involving intense, relentless feelings of distress and fear. They can also have excessive and persistent worry about everyday situations, and repeated episodes of intense anxiety or terror.
    Suicidal thoughts
    This involves persistent thoughts about ending one's life.
    Drug and alcohol abuse
    This involves the excessive use of drug and/or alcohol, which interferes with daily functioning.
    Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD)
    This is a disruptive behavioural disorder which normally involves angry outbursts, often directed at people of authority. This behaviour must last continuously for six months or more and significantly interfere with daily functioning.
