I'm considering to send my 6yr old boy to a montessori school in Vancouver. The school I've found is either 'Westside Montessori' or 'Roots&Wings Montessori', which means it is not in the list of the schools here this website. Does it mean I've chosen a wrong one? The school I've found in Vancouver is very small size, only 22 students in total (elementary only) and doesn't have any facilities... not even a small office where I could sit and talk with the principal. How do I know I've found a good montessori school?
Westside Montessori does have a listing on our site, you can visit it here.
Though typically each Montessori classroom has over 20 children, each school varies. To ensure your school is properly following the Montessori method you can read more about the Montessori philosophy and go over our Montessori Checklist.
You can also look at previously-asked Montessori questions in our Community for more information.
