The Elementary Program

The Elementary Program starts at the equivalent of the grade one point for our students.  Our Montessori Elementary classrooms are comprised of students ages 6 through 12 (grades 1-6) and offer multi aged communities in which each student is a valuable member.


Students meet and exceed the BC Ministry of Education requirements, while exploring their personal interests through materials and experiences that offer key concepts and concrete experiences. Students may choose areas of additional in-depth study and engage with the wider community through student led "Going Out' opportunities.


The program focuses on the interdependence and interconnectedness of all subject areas, including, but not limited to language, mathematics, geometry, history, science, art, music, drama, nature, and physical education.


Classroom environments are designed to enable students to gain a strong sense of themselves, an awareness of their peers, to work collaboratively, and to contribute.


The best way to learn more about the comprehensive six year Montessori Elementary Program is to come in and see it.

"Education between the ages of six to twelve is not a direct continuation of that which has gone before, though it is built upon that basis.  Psychologically there is a decided change in personality, and we recognize that nature has made this a period for the acquisition of culture, just as the former was for the absorption of the environment."

(Dr. Montessori, To Educate the Human Potential, p. 3)
