Community Connections

Contributing To Our Community

At Queens Montessori, we believe that being a contributing part of the community is essential. We strive to teach our children how to give back by partnering with local organizations that make a difference in the quality of life of residents.

Canadian Cancer Society

The Canadian Cancer Society is a national, community-based organization of volunteers whose mission is the eradication of cancer and the enhancement of the quality of life of people living with cancer. Since the 1950s, bright yellow daffodils have arrived in communities across Canada to mark the beginning of Daffodil Month. To this day, the daffodil continues to symbolize strength and courage in the fight against cancer. Queens Montessori Academy is proud to help with the annual flower sales to help fund life-saving research, information and support services for people living with cancer.

Terry Fox Foundation

For over thirty years, The Terry Fox Foundation has worked to achieve Terry’s vision – a world without cancer. Their researchers, staff and thousands of volunteers are determined to reach that goal. Every year, Terry Fox Runs are held in over 9000 communities across Canada with the goal of raising funds for cancer research and Queens Montessori Academy shows their support by being part of the movement.

Thanksgiving Food & Christmas Toy Drives

Queens Montessori is proud to participate in the annual community Thanksgiving Food Drive as well as Christmas Toy Drive. Our children bring in non-perishable food items or new or gently used toys and are directly involved in the delivery of the collections to their local Markham Fire Station 94. Proceeds are directed to families in need through various local charities.

What Sets Us Apart

Our centre’s curriculum is built on the Montessori method. Based on the work of Dr. Maria Montessori, this method uses self-directed activity, collaborative play and hands-on learning to develop independent thinking, self-awareness, motivation and discipline. Children have a natural drive to learn through play. Our Montessori curriculum simply harnesses that drive to facilitate growth and development.

With a variety of certifications and a solid foundation of experience, our early childhood educators are well-equipped to facilitate your child’s learning in a safe and engaging environment. Our directresses are passionate about child care and the Montessori method. They apply our curriculum with a warm and supportive approach that allows each child to feel like Queens Montessori is their home-away-from-home.

Open communication between our staff and your family is crucial. We maintain an open-door policy, allowing you to meet with our directresses and discuss your child’s progress. In addition to open houses, report cards, parent interviews and other opportunities, our BrightPath Connect™ app ensures you’re always tuned-in to your child’s progress and development.

Food is vital to your child’s mental and physical development. We’ve collaborated with a registered nutritionist on our menu to ensure your child has all the fuel they need to learn and grow. We use fresh and local ingredients as much as possible when preparing your child’s lunch and snacks. All the food we offer is prepared in-house daily.
