Our Perspective

How we see ABC Montessori

There’s a lot to learn in the early years, one of them being a confidence to learn and to engage effectively with others. ABC, in keeping with the core tenets of the Montessori approach, was founded in 1995 to create a caring, supportive, family-centred environment, and that remains foremost in the school’s approach. An impressive roster of extracurricular activities is a draw, as is the attention to values. ABC’s reputation has been rightly gained through an individual attention to the needs of each student, and providing a solid foundation for their ongoing academic life.

Message from school leadership

Raj Vekaria, Director and Principal

ABC Montessori is an academic school with an educational philosophy based on the development of the whole child. We believe in helping a child to develop academically, intellectually, socially, emotionally and physically. In addition to teaching academic subject matter, students at ABC Montessori are taught practical life and social skills, good work habits, time management, and respect of others and the environment.

At ABC Montessori, we offer our toddler and CASA students a hybrid learning approach which includes the use of Montessori materials and traditional learning materials and methods.  Our Elementary students undergo an advanced traditional curriculum based on the Ontario Ministry of Education’s base curriculum.

As a parent, you likely worry not only about your child’s academic success, but also about the social and physical environment of the school where he or she spends their day and about the teachers who are responsible for their learning and care. At ABC Montessori, our foremost priorities are to provide students with a friendly, nurturing and supportive school atmosphere and teachers who are caring, encouraging and dedicated to the overall success of every student.

ABC Montessori has a strict code of conduct that all students must follow.  Students are taught to respect their teachers and classmates and how to behave in the classroom.  Teaching a student respect, good manners, and how to conduct themselves is a cooperative effort between the school and parents and is a part of a student’s overall education. ABC Montessori does not tolerate physical or verbal abuse by anyone. Any student who abuses or causes harm to another student, or teacher, will not be permitted to continue at ABC Montessori.

Every student is an individual with a unique personality. We understand that each student learns at a different pace, and has his or her own strengths and weaknesses, interests, likes and dislikes and personal habits. Students receive a great deal of personal attention in the classroom; thus, the teachers have a good understanding of each student’s academic as well as social requirements. Teachers can assess the progress and understand a student’s strengths and weaknesses much more accurately by spending quality time with each individual student.

Every child deserves the support, encouragement and the opportunity to reach their full potential. At ABC Montessori, we promise to provide every student with the opportunity to succeed by giving him or her tools to build a strong foundation, in an environment that is stimulating, challenging, and very supportive. It is our goal to make every student’s experience at ABC Montessori as rewarding and fulfilling as possible.

At ABC Montessori, we believe that education is the foundation for life. The education that a child receives at an early age, along with his or her home life, are the most important factors in determining   his or her future.  The   impact of early education is   felt throughout   a person’s life.   A child’s school experience must be positive and fulfilling. We believe   that  the   responsibility  of  ensuring  that a child receives  a  good  education   is  shared  by  the school  and  parents jointly. We  believe  that  building  self-confidence,  independence   and   motivation  will  give  a  person the   ability to   attempt   new   things, be  a  leader  and  to always  put forth  their  best  effort.
