Welcome to Maria Montessori School!
“Do join us… in the glorious task of keeping our intentions crystal clear and simple, with faith, with enthusiasm and with unending delight, for ours is a joyful venture.”
Maria Montessori School is approved for Canada Wide Early Learning and Child Care (CWELCC) funding. The CWELCC program, initiated and funded by the Government of Canada, is a five-year plan that will significantly reduce the cost of early childhood education. The School applauds all levels of government in taking this initiative as it will allow access to the benefits of high quality Montessori education by many more families.
Practical implementation of the program is still under development. Please contact the school for specific fee information.
Founded in 1975 and serving families from across the greater Toronto area for more than forty years, Maria Montessori School has operated at the same location in North Toronto's Leaside neighbourhood,
Currently the school serves children from 16 months to 12 years of age.
Montessori Education aims to support the full development of the human being and offers a broad view of education as an "aid to life." It is implemented in over 20,000 schools around the globe and has a greater history of success than any other educational approach in the world.
