Previously Manotick Montessori Casa Dei Bambini.

Montessori by BrightPath Manotick is located in a beautiful rural setting near the intersection of Dozois Road and Mitch Owens Road (aka Highway 8), just down the street from St Mark High School.

Established in 1999, Manotick is known for its reputation in the community it serves. The centre offers 71 licensed spaces for children 18 months to 6 years old and is proud to present a true Montessori experience for the Manotick area. Located on 15 acres of beautiful woodland backed onto its own private man-made pond, the centre looks like a traditional schoolhouse, complete with a bell tower and working bell which can be heard every morning, lunch hour and end of day. Its outdoor space features a rope climber, sandboxes, basketball courts and more, all looking out onto the pond, hills and nature trails surrounding the centre.

From its earliest beginnings, Montessori by BrightPath Manotick believed not only in the Montessori philosophy but also in the need for creativity. Today, the curriculum continues to evolve with additional creative programs not typically offered in this type of setting including Choir, Art and French Theory as well as Physical Activities and WeeMove.

Centre Director

Sabrina always knew she wanted a career that would have a lasting impact on her community and world. Engineering came as a natural choice because of the way she sees it, engineers and their practices have been encouraged for one paramount reason: benefiting humankind. She went on to complete a Diploma in Early Childhood Education from Loyalist College in Bellville, Ontario. As an Engineer turned Educator, over the past eight years, she has worked to pioneer a holistic STEM-based (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) curriculum for the Montessori by BrightPath programs that she oversees as Area Manager.

Sabrina feels thrilled to be a part of programs where children are empowered to lead their own learning and make a positive difference in their community and world right from a young age! Her education and experience have been integral to her role but it is the parent in her that inspires her to foster environments with an aim to develop the mind, nurture the body and inspire the soul!

What our families think about Montessori by BrightPath Manotick

"Our daughter truly loves coming to school and she speaks about Miss Hollis and the other teachers often. It is so evident that she feels comfortable there and truly happy to learn from all of you and the other kids. It is beyond a doubt so reassuring as a parent to know that your child’s introduction to formal learning is a positive one and in such a caring environment. We are looking forward to another year at Manotick Montessori!!"

"Arianna loves attending the Manotick Montessori School and it has made the transition (away from being at home with me all day) way easier then expected. Ms. Helen the head of the Toddler program, is absolutely wonderful and a huge asset to the program; her advice and experience is invaluable and her approach to raising children mirrors our own. Ms. Helen and all of the teachers in the Toddler 1 room go above and beyond to take excellent care of our child. We are completely confident in their expertise and abilities and we think that Arianna is getting the best possible start to her education through the Manotick Montessori School."
