Virtual Curriculum Night – Thursday, November 5th, 2020

beyond traditional expectations, Montessori Method, scientific pedagogy, cultivate self-awareness

Join us at our  Virtual Open House Curriculum Information Night, we are excited to take you on a virtual tour of our school and highlight our curriculum programs from Toddler to Junior High.

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.

Dearcroft Community COVID-19 Update

Dear Parents,

As we begin this virtual journey together, for the time being while our physical campus has been mandated to close, our team of highly professional, experienced and passionate educators, who are entirely dedicated to your child’s needs regardless of the circumstances we face, remain available and accountable to you during school hours.  Countless hours of preparation and curriculum development have gone into this collective effort to continue being supportive as we move forward together with our work.


Once this mandated closure is over, we will be in a position to return to campus and carry on providing top quality care and programming for your children in the manner we would all prefer.  In the meantime, given our financial obligations as a business, we are not in a position to provide refunds at any level of the school, in order to be able to maintain the campus and staffing required upon our return.  As we work through this fluid period, with monthly April tuition payments due, if you are in a difficult situation financially at the moment, please reach out to us directly by email.  As we engage multi-faceted approaches to maintain all aspects of school operations, we are working closely to support our incredible staff who have continued to work tirelessly through this entire time.  

As we launch our on-line platform that we have developed in response to the mandated closure, we are confident you will find much, if not all, of the content to be useful tools and resources for you, as well as your child.  In addition, it will give your family the ability to stay connected with your child’s teachers and the Dearcroft community at large.  We will be sending login details to all families on Sunday and the site will launch on Monday.  We do ask that you take some time to get familiar with the site going forward and take full advantage of the content and connectivity as features are continually added.  Your feedback on the resources provided will be most welcome!

Please know that we are here for you…our building may be temporarily unavailable, but we remain here to support you as we navigate the conditions of these extraordinary times.
