February Open House 2020

Open House:

Saturday,  February 8th 2020

10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

Join us at our Winter Open House, meet our dynamic staff and students as we tour you around our  school.

Education is perhaps the most critical component of a child’s development, with a legacy that permeates throughout his/her lifetime. As parents, we want to give our children the best start, and most importantly our children need to feel fulfilled, happy, inspired and nurtured.

One of the greatest benefits of Montessori education is building real-life skills that carry over when it is time to enter the workforce. Problem-solving, creativity, team work and responsibility run through the veins of a Montessori child.

At Dearcroft Montessori School our experienced staff take great pride in offering a warm and engaging environment for students providing programs for toddlers to grade 8.

A Montessori education consciously designs social communities and educational experiences that cultivate the child’s sense of self-awareness and empathy. Montessori learning environments allow for the respect and celebration of individual spirit within people of all ages.

At Dearcroft/West Wind Montessori  School the comprehensive and methodical training of staff, excellent student to teacher ratios and long term relationships allow us to focus on the individual child’s development keeping in-line with Montessori best practices. All of our classrooms feature: individualized, child-centred programs, enriched programming tailored to meet the needs of each student; multi-age environments; low student-teacher ratios; hands-on experiential learning; individual and small group lessons and enriched music and French programming.

A Montessori education, due to its unique ability to identify and nurture individual strengths, does a remarkable job of creating graduates who go on to change the world. The founders of Google, Amazon and Wikipedia are fine examples of innovative, creative and fearless entrepreneurs who started their academic journeys in Montessori classrooms. They never stopped learning and continue to push boundaries… creating exciting new paradigms within their chosen fields. Their business cultures are outstanding examples of meaningful change and as individuals they have emerged as world ambassadors of inspired leadership.

Retired Officer Jean Marc Lavictoire pays a special visit to Dearcroft

 

Dearcroft staff and students would like to express our sincere appreciation to retired Master Warrant Officer Jean Marc Lavictoire for taking the time to be with our students last week.

Mr. Lavictoire visited with students to share his experience in the Canadian Armed Forces and the importance of remembrance.

Older students gained insight into some of his varied experiences both on and off the field, ranging from Peacekeeping to coordinating services for injured soldiers.

They were left with a message that every action has a consequence.

Younger students appreciated light chats with this “hero” as well as a chance to share a hug with someone who has sacrificed for our country. Thank you for taking the time to bring your experience to another generation!
