Our daughter loved her first year at Ecole Montessori. She loved everything from the curriculum to the extra curricular activities to recess. What she loved about the curriculum was how she could progress at her own pace, in particular, she was able to learn well beyond grade one expectations. Having friends in the older grades pushed our daughter to keep up with her friends, all in a positive way. She was always encouraged to learn more if she had the interest and capability. When it came to extracurricular activities, our daughter loved the variety of activities (e.g. indoor soccer, African dance, karate). These are activities that you would rarely see in the public school system. Recess gave our daughter the opportunity to run around and expand her friendships. Overall, a great experience!
My child’s experience at Ecole Montessori is great. She entered the school with no knowledge in French and now after one year, she is able to read, write, understands and speaks a little bit of French. I was looking for a French Montessori school as she was already studying in a Montessori system and I wanted her to learn French. I was skeptical initially as I don’t speak French and if I didn’t know how I will be able to help her learn French. After speaking to the principal, it gave me the confidence with my choice. My child was welcomed into the environment and she adapted well. The other students were also very helpful towards her and helped her to speak and read French. Now they are all friends and happy to see them help each other out.
