The Montessori School of Milton’s Elementary Program is designed to encourage your child to function independently and think critically. We hold our elementary students to high academic standards to define a habit of determination and motivation, while providing clearly defined expectations for our students to work toward. While each child progresses at their own individual pace, we nurture intellectual thinking in all and adopt a philosophy of continuous improvement for all of our students as individuals.
Our Elementary Program is for children in grades 1-5 and works to instill a solid understanding of academic concepts through a range of teaching methods. We employ techniques that benefit each child’s individual learning style, which develops adaptability and versatility in our students. Our program goes beyond a typical academic curriculum to facilitate personal growth within our students. We’re passionate about supporting children as they engage and interact with their peers and the world around them in a manner that exhibits global citizenship and fosters a sense of respect and personal responsibility. Some of the extra curricular programs that the children have participated in are MMUN [Montessori Model UN], JUMP [Wilfred Laurier], Spelling Bee, etc.
Our Education Program teachers are experienced, knowledgeable educators. At the Montessori School of Milton, we’re proud to boast a team of educators who are wholeheartedly dedicated to students’ progress and wellbeing, with the ability to expertly balance the complexities of raising strong and respectful citizens alongside the challenges that accompany academic growth in this age group. We work to support and engage each individual student, taking their needs and interests into account to build a tailored experience that works for your child. We are dedicated to fostering a welcoming environment of mutual respect, so that each student feels heard and comfortable and can focus on their education without experiencing barriers.
