Provide every child a truly quality education that inspires them to learn and grow into young adults full of promise

Discover Montessori Schoolspacer

Montessori strives to meet that goal by offering a profoundly different experience from schools past and present. Our curriculum is uniquely designed to intrigue children, developing a lifelong love of learning, and independent thinkers passionate for knowledge rather than simply earning good grades.


Although small in size by some comparisons, our school’s impact on a child's understanding of both academic and life skills is enormous. By practicing Montessori fundamentals and methodology revered worldwide, in addition to teaching the BC Ministry of Education’s curriculum, we offer a much broader education than the public system provides. And all at a pace unique to each child, moulding not smart students by rigid design but rather progressive, lateral-thinking learned stewards of a much better tomorrow.


Montessori is committed to the development of wise and responsible members of society and at Discover Montessori School we are laying the foundation to attain these goals. We encourage you to read on or to call the school to discover how much Montessori matters to our current generation of trail blazers.

Montessori is very much a brick & mortar approach to learning, focusing on fundamentals, hands-on experience, individual interests and self-correcting learning tools that build understanding and confidence in all they do.

Industrial classrooms give way to flowing activity units and collaborative roundtables that encourage independence and interdependence, build language and practical life skills and cultural understanding.

Students take responsibility for their learning, embracing challenges and learning from mistakes. We offer a balance between freedom, order and responsibility, and we nurture curiosity, self-discipline, motivation and a sense of purpose.


An enthusiastically active Parent Group enriches the entire school experience on and off campus through year-long activities and events, reinforcing core Montessori values that encourage grace, courtesy and respect in all we do
