Something to see for yourself.

Child with glue stick

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 engages 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 the required videos in the order listed below. These are approximately 25 minutes total in length and must 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 run from 9:15-10:30 a.m. at our Main Office – 719 Waterloo Street. The tour does move between several of our buildings so we strongly suggest that you find care for your child.

When you arrive, you will be asked to sign-in and provide the password identified in one of the videos above. Please note that if you have not watched the required videos and are unable to provide the password, you cannot participate in the tour. The visit is dependent on the information presented in Part One.

Winter 2020 Tour Dates

To register for a tour of Montessori Academy, please fill in this Inquiry Form. You will then be contacted by our Admissions Office to confirm your details and assist you in registering for a tour date.

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.
