Celebrating Over 50 years of Quality Montessori Education

About Us

KW Montessori School

Welcome to KW Montessori. Our philosophy, developed by Dr. Maria Montessori in the early 20th century, is an educational approach centered on the belief that children are naturally curious, self-motivated learners. At KW Montessori we offer a safe and learning inspired environment to children aged 2 to 12 years. Our facility is a registered private school where your child can begin at the preschool level and continue right through until the end of Grade 6. While many families learn about our school when they are searching for daycare options, they soon discover that KW Montessori also offers a wonderful alternative for their kindergarten and elementary aged child. In addition to our accredited and authentic Montessori programs, KWMS offers Music, French and Physical Education. Visit us and learn why a Montessori education is right for your family.

We have had a great experience with the KW Montessori School

We have had a great experience with the K-W Montessori School. Our daughter has made great connections with her teachers and peers. It will be sad to say good-bye! We will miss the warm and inviting environment as we enter the public system.

Jody, Mother


It provides an extension of the values our daughter learns at home

As parents we chose Montessori because it provides an extension of the values our daughter learns at home. She is guided through a learning structure that fosters a sense of autonomy in a safe and nurturing environment.

Robyn, Mother


We chose Montessori because of the hands-on learning methods

We chose Montessori for our children because of the hands-on learning methods. We like the small class sizes and how children are being taught to respect their teachers, peers and the environment in which they are in.

Suzanne & Richard, Parents


I have seen a substantial increase in her independence

My child will return to Montessori next year because I have seen a substantial increase in her independence and she has acquired skills and knowledge that my older child, attending public school, did not demonstrate at that age.

Steve, Father


The Montessori program offers the freedom to learn and move in

My older child is very active and I was concerned that he would not thrive in a public school, where there is a higher student-teacher ratio and where roaming in the classroom would be frowned upon. The Montessori program offers so much to him- the freedom to learn and move in.

Sharon, Mother


Our child was learning so many things at a very progressive pace

We initially didn’t even think of sending our kids to private school and only started Montessori for our first daughter as an alternative to daycare. However, when we saw how our child was learning so many things at a very progressive pace for a child her age we were very impressed.

Natasha, Mother


I had spent an amazing time there learning the basic life skills

I clearly remembered I had spent an amazing time there learning the basic life skills that I am using today as well as the kind and amazing staff of teachers.

KW Montessori FAQ

How does Montessori compare to the regular school system?

There are many differences that distinguish a Montessori school from a traditional school. The main difference is that each student is on an individual path to learning as they discover. The teachers observe the students as they move through the curriculum at their own pace. There are three different age ranges in a Montessori classroom. Students are working from all different areas of the classroom at the same time. The Montessori Guide is literally directing each student in their learning rather than teaching the class as a whole. The students typically stay with the same classmates and teachers for three years.

How do students transition into the regular system after grade 6?

Students rarely have problems transitioning into the regular system. Montessori education and philosophy has taught them to be independent, confident, self-sufficient, problem solvers and critical thinkers. The students are capable of interacting with different age groups, have well developed social graces and have an appreciation of an individual’s needs, abilities and personalities.

Are there specialty teachers like French, Music/Art?

The elementary students have music once a week by a music specialist. Elementary Art is taught by the Montessori Guide once a week. French is offered by a French specialist 3 times a week for Casa and 4 times a week for elementary.

Do you have a before and aftercare program?

Yes, our before care program is from 8:00-8:45 a.m. and our aftercare program is from 3:30-5:30 p.m.
