Biz Showcase: Montessori Academy of London – Providing traditional Montessori education for 50 years
Traditional Montessori education provides children not only the foundation for academic success, but supports the emotional development and social awareness that will prepare them to study, work and thrive in the 21st century!
Established in 1968, Montessori Academy of London has locations downtown and in Westmount, and provides the only accredited program in the city. Accreditation through the Canadian Council of Montessori Administrators (CCMA) helps preserve the Montessori philosophy of education and helps ensure accredited schools provide the highest-quality Montessori education. Montessori Academy serves children from 18 months of age through grade eight.
Dr. Maria Montessori (1870-1952) understood that children not only absorb information and learn from a very early age, but that children actively seek new information and learning opportunities. In the right environment, this natural curiosity drives children to guide their own learning. Everything Montessori educators do strives to support self-guided learning, self-confidence, and a compassionate worldview.
Montessori is child-centred education designed to help all children reach their fullest potential – at their own pace. It is a holistic approach to education that promotes the development of social skills, emotional growth and physical coordination as well as cognitive preparation for future academics. Our curriculum allows the child to experience the joy of learning and gives the child time to enjoy the process. This joy of learning enhances the development of self-esteem, and provides experiences that teach children how to learn, not just what to learn.
Our program inspires independence, responsibility, self-discipline, leadership, compassion, social awareness, initiative, curiosity and a love of learning!
