Little Scholars Montessori is the proud recipient of two Prime Minister’s Awards for Excellence in Early Childhood Education. In 2014 and again in 2017, we received this top honour for outstanding and innovative early childhood education. Recipients are honoured for their leadership, exemplary early childhood education practices and their commitment to help build the foundation children need to make the best possible start in life.

Our curriculum is based on the teachings of Dr. Maria Montessori. The Montessori method centers on self-directed activity, collaborative play and individual development. By presenting children with the power of choice, we help instil in them a strong sense of self, a desire to learn and a natural self-discipline.
Our early childhood educators are committed to implementing our Montessori curriculum in a supportive and positive environment, nurturing a lifelong love of learning. With a strong foundation of education and experience, our staff help foster each child’s individuality and create a home-away-from-home experience.
We firmly believe in open, two-way communication between parents and our centres. In addition to quarterly newsletters, open houses, monthly observation summaries, parent evenings and our open-door policy for parents, we also offer our proprietary app, BrightPath Connect™, to help keep you up-to-date on your child’s progress.
Your child’s brain and body need fuel to learn and grow. We have partnered with a Registered Nutritionist to create a menu that helps establish healthy eating habits in your child and allows them to thrive. Every day, your child receives two snacks and a hot lunch, all prepared in-house from fresh ingredients.
Little Scholars Montessori (LSM) works with your family to promote excellence in early childhood education and child care. Our Montessori-based programming allows children to learn at their own pace in a comfortable, warm and stimulating environment.
We believe that the first six years of life are truly the miracle years. Early interactions don’t just create context – they directly affect the way our brain develops. This makes it critical to provide children with a quality learning environment during these essential years. By encouraging your child to discover the world firsthand and pursue their own interests, we can help your child reach their full potential and develop into a balanced and well-rounded person. We aim to nurture and encourage your child’s independence, inspiring them to become a positive, confident and responsible individual with a lifelong desire to learn.
Children today face a rapidly changing world full of new ideas and technology. We update our programs regularly to reflect changes in the world and in our community. At LSM, your child will experience a synergy of the Montessori philosophy within a modern, innovative early learning curriculum and creatively designed classrooms.
