This PD Day aligns with the TVDSB PA Day.
As I’m sure all parents do, we worried a bit about the high school transition. We are pleased to say that our daughter has managed the transition well, seems to be adjusting to the differences in the public system and is happy. …We just wanted to say thank you to everyone at MA who has contributed to her growth and development. Providing our girls a Montessori education may be the single best investment we have ever made.
IQ tests of children educated according to the Montessori method revealed they enjoyed a higher level of intelligence than the children educated according to the traditional method.

Montessori instilled a sense of accountability about getting work done; how to set a plan and follow it through.
Your school reflects unbelievable commitment and true positive leadership… The values of thoughtfulness, consideration, sensitivity and respect were so palpable – and clear to see – and permeated every aspect of what I experienced while there (visiting)… Please do convey to your staff how enormously impressed I was by everything I saw and heard, and how privileged I felt to be able to enjoy that ‘bird’s eye view’ of a very special place.
Grace’s Montessori education continues to pay dividends in terms of how she approaches and operates in the world.
My daughter is fairly new to Montessori and had taken to the educators and the environment ‘like a duck to water.’ I never imagined her transition would be so smooth. She loves going to school to join her friends and her learning curve since starting early this year is astounding. How many 2 year olds can tell the difference between a toad and a red-eyed tree frog? It’s a joy to take her every morning and see her get so excited about seeing everyone. I wish I had sent her older sister (to MA) when she was a toddler. The children truly flourish (at MA).
In short, we love Montessori Academy of London Toddler Program and we know our sons do too. We feel that it has contributed to our sons’ vocabulary, creativity, confidence, individuality, discipline and friendships. It is providing a vital foundation for their future learning and relationship building. The choice of this school over a traditional daycare was an easy decision for our family.
We value the many opportunities for parent involvement. You are able to join the children during ‘Open Class,’ where you get to take part in … and do classroom work with your child as well as other special events. Parent information nights regarding different aspects of the Montessori curriculum are also very helpful in terms of gaining new knowledge and skills on how to facilitate your own child’s development.
We see how the Toddler program fosters generosity, empathy, intellectual curiosity, the love of learning, self-confidence, focus and determination in our young daughter. We feel confident that the Montessori curriculum is meeting and exceeding our child’s learning and development needs and would not hesitate to recommend to others considering the program for their children.
I love that the children find activities they love within all areas, and are given many opportunities to explore the outdoors, engage in the arts, and enjoy group activities.
