Montessori teachers and students around the world are enthusiastically anticipating Montessori Week in Canada, which will be celebrated from February 24 – March 2, 2019. This is a special time for our school to celebrate 112 years since inception, and 106 years in Canada, of this innovative and specialized Montessori education.
