Something to see for yourself.

There’s something special about the Montessori classroom. Visitors regularly comment on how different our classrooms look and feel.

You won’t see rows upon rows of desks jammed together to maximize space. You won’t see a teacher looming over students as they furiously write notes to memorize.

Instead, you’ll see groups of students learning together – or individual students working independently. You’ll see shelves of colourful material that engage the senses. You’ll see inquiry and discovery. You’ll see a passion for learning.

In every Montessori classroom visit you’ll see something different because every day brings a new discovery and a new learning experience.

We invite you to see for yourself…

As part of the application process, we ask every interested family to complete an Information Session and Tour. You’ll see first-hand what makes Montessori so different – and so special. To get the process started, submit an Inquiry Form.

Part One: Montessori Informational Videos

Please watch these videos in the order listed below. These are approximately 25 minutes total in length and should be viewed prior to your visit:

  1. What We Believe – 50 Years of Montessori Academy of London
  2. Information Session – presentation by our Executive Director, Tina Sartori
  3. Building the Pink Tower

**Bonus Video (not required but encouraged to view!): Grace and Courtesy: Building A Better World | Dr. Timothy Purnell

Part Two: In-Person Tour

Tours begin at our Toddler Building (718 Waterloo Street) and moves between several of our buildings.  Tours run for approximately one hour.  In-school tours are for adults only.  Space is limited and advance registration is required.

As we work towards making all of our buildings barrier-free, we invite you to contact the school if you require accommodations for a tour of our Montessori learning environments.

Winter 2022 Session Dates 

Participants are required to self-screen for COVID-19 symptoms on the day of the tour. Masks are mandatory for the duration of  the visit.  

To attend a tour date, please complete this Inquiry Form.  You will then be contacted by our Admissions Office to confirm your details.

Please note: Planning a year ahead to apply to our school is recommended as many of our programs reach capacity. For our Toddler programs, students need to be 18 months or turning 18 months in the month they begin. All of our programs follow the school calendar year and therefore students begin their programs in September. January starts are limited and based on classroom capacity.

Applications may be submitted prior to attending the information session and school tour.

For general admission inquiries, please contact Jennifer Rayman by e-mail jrayman@montessori.on.ca or by phone at 519-433-9121 ext. 223.
