Discover Montessori School is a non-profit independent school & licensed child care facility governed by Island Health child care licensing authority and the Ministry of Education.
We follow the educational model and philosophy envisioned by Dr. Maria Montessori, which is perpetuated by the Association Montessori Internationale. We place a strong emphasis on personal and collective responsibility for the each other and for the Earth. Within the Montessori academic framework, we teach the interconnectedness of all subjects, the importance of community, and work toward developing peace through mutual respect, compassion, responsibility, and understanding.
We value diversity among our students and staff. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, gender, religion, sexual orientation, national or ethnic origin. Everyone is welcome here & is a valued member of the community.
Our programs offer experiential, hands-on learning for toddler through grade school aged students starting at age two through grade 9 equivalent at age fifteen.
We enable each child's growing independence and work together with families to support the unique development of each student as they progress through the curriculum at their own pace.
