Peel Montessori School is unlike any other private school. The teachers are keen observers who will help your child learn to think critically and independently, work collaboratively, and gain a disciplined approach to studying with each level of study completed. The development of character is an important aspect of developing who your child will become; therefore, your child will interact with purpose and learn to display a commitment to help others and act as responsible members of the community. Staff and students interact with the premise that respect and integrity are important values in creating a harmonious environment that fosters enjoyment of learning and fond memories with friends. Peel Montessori School is our home away from home, as well as a collaborative and supportive place where staff and students feel safe, nurtured, and cared for. Peel Montessori School classrooms are well-equipped with a variety of interactive materials that the teachers present creatively and with patience in order to intrigue your child’s curiosity to want to learn beyond expectations. The curriculum extends beyond the classroom with the inclusion of the outdoor environment and community at large which establishes a well-balanced programme. As with past children, your child will prosper by becoming an engaged learner resulting in the development of interest and inquisitiveness – the drive needed in his or her quest to achieve successful learning experiences through exploration.
As your child progresses through the Elementary levels,he is prepared for learning multiple subjects and researching topics of interest, which help develop the core fundamentals of reading, writing, and arithmetic as well as introduce the cultural areas of geography, history, French, art, music, and computers. These essential programmes are rigorous, but flexible to meet your child’s individual needs each step of the way. As your child learns to become absorbed in curriculum extensions of interest beyond the classroom, opportunities are provided to help him or her evolve as a critical thinker who reasons, comprehends, and applies concepts in the real world. Discussions and inquiry of world events and cultures provide an open window to the world as a means of developing compassion and appreciation of others. While studying current global and past historical events, students establish a foundation for determining their individual place on earth and how they can make a positive impact as a dedicated and peaceful citizen of the world.
