Mississauga, ON | Grades NS - 6 | Shortlist
My child's experience has been better than I ever could have imagined. Even if we have had a bad morning at home, she glows the minute we pull into the parking lot. Her teachers have instilled such confidence and motivation in her. She comes home with daily reports of new things she has tried, new friends she has worked with and new demonstrations she has enjoyed. I am constantly impressed by what she can do.
The administration is exemplary. The work they do through their parent meetings helps students arrive prepared for learning. I had very little understanding of Montessori's work before I registered my daughter. In the last two years the administration has transformed so much of the way we play and work at home.
There isn't a day that goes by that my daughter doesn't impress me with something new she has learned at school. Skills I wouldn't have thought someone her age was capable of.
I'm making the investment in my child's early childhood education because I believe it will give her the foundation for all her future learning. The school delivers an exceptional Montessori program where my child is becoming truly engaged with the world around her.
Because the students are so young, extracurriculars isn't part of their programing.
The language that these students have been taught to support getting along with one another is the best I've seen in early childhood classrooms. When my daughter is telling stories at the dinner table, she is articulate describing how the children interacted with each other during the day. Even in the middle of a toddler meltdown, my daughter is able to describe her emotions and needs thanks to the language she has developed at school.
I had my daughter home through the summer. Every time we drove past the school she asked how much longer she had to wait until she could join the Casa children. My daughter absolutely loves going to school. I believe it is because of the encouragement and attention she gets there each day.
I was first drawn to the school because of the large trees in their outdoor space. I was thrilled to find out that the children also venture beyond the school grounds to go on nature walks and learn about the world around them.
I've enjoyed meeting parents an many school events and have felt incredibly supported by their stories and advice.
