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 watch the 3 informational videos linked below and attend a school tour. You’ll see first-hand what makes Montessori so different – and so special. To get the process started, submit an Inquiry Form.

Applying early

Applying at least a year ahead of your child’s enrolment 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. Applications are placed in our wait pool in the order in which they’re received. 

VIDEOS

We ask interested families to watch the following 3 videos with key background information on our school and the Montessori method. They are approximately 25 minutes total in length:

  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  

IN-PERSON TOURS

Tours begin at 718 Waterloo Street and move between several of our buildings; tours run for approximately one hour, and are for adults only.  Space is limited, so advance registration is required.

Participants are required to self-screen for COVID-19 symptoms on the day of the tour. We are a mask-friendly environment – masks are optional, not 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.

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

Fall 2022 Session Dates – Coming soon.
