Did you know that Campbell River has a Montessori school which offers programs for children beginning at age three?

There is. Campbell River Montessori School is located in Room 31 at Discovery Passage Elementary School at 2050 Pengelley Road.  The community is invited to drop in and see the school on Saturday, May 7, 2011 from 2-4 p.m.

Campbell River Montessori School opened for classes last September.  It is operated by Discover Montessori Society, a non-profit group which operates Montessori Schools in Nanaimo and Parksville.  The classroom is filled with light and has its own garden and outdoor space. Campbell River Montessori School is ready to accept registrations for September 2011 of children born in 2008. Spaces are limited, and interested parents are encouraged to observe a class prior to registering.

Montessori education is one of the fastest growing education systems in the world.  It is based upon the research of Dr. Maria Montessori (1870-1952), noted educator and humanitarian, who revolutionized our understanding of childhood development over the last 100 years.  Her methodology is centered on providing children with skills for critical thinking, independence, and peacefulness.  Each Montessori classroom leads children toward a deeper understanding of the world around them – through language, science, cultural arts, mathematics, sensorial, and practical life skills.

“It is never too early to begin thinking about your child’s education. We offer young children the academic and social learning they yearn for, in an environment which is prepared especially for them. Through inspiring their curiosity, we help children develop a love of learning that will last a lifetime,” said Diana Chalmers, the school’s principal.
