Welcome to the
Westboro Montessori School

"Childhood passes from conquest to conquest in
a rhythm that constitutes its joy and happiness."

- Dr. Maria Montessori


We appreciate your interest in Westboro Montessori School. Since 2006, we have provided exceptional care and education for children ages 1.5 to 6, operating out of two campuses, both conveniently located in the heart of the beautiful Westboro Village in Ottawa. WMS is a private school governed and licensed by the Ontario Ministry of Education.

WMS offers Toddler (age 1.5 to 3), Casa/ Preschool (age 3 to 6), and extra French, Music, Visual Art and Creative Movement Programs. Our main goal, under the direction of a specially prepared, highly educated and dedicated staff, is to help each child reach their full potential in all areas of life. At WMS we strictly follow the Montessori nurturing, holistic curriculum that allows the child to experience the joy of learning, ensure the development of self-esteem, and provide the experience from which children create their knowledge. Our classrooms, which are well equipped with specially designed materials, create an educational environment that gives each child the opportunity to achieve academic and personal success.

We at Westboro Montessori School have recognized how important it is to incorporate the French language into the Montessori Casa Curriculum. Our unique daily structure ensures that students receive instruction each day in both of Canada’s official languages. Equal time is given to each language and students thrive in the bilingual environment. This allows them the time and exposure needed to acquire the French skills to succeed in the upper years.

January 6th, 2007 marked 100 years since the first Montessori school was opened in Rome. It was the beginning of what rapidly became a global education and social movement which today has resulted in 22,000 schools in more than 100 countries. Through all these years parents have been amazed by the advantages of a Montessori education that foster social and academic skills superior to those generated by a pool of other types of schools. The scientific studies and evidence continues to support Maria Montessori's discoveries.

We invite you to tour the school and learn more about the Montessori philosophy, the curriculum and our specialist programming in the French, Visual Art, Creative Movement and Music.
