We are a private pre-school offering a half or full-day Montessori program for children age 2 - 6 years. We are located in a quiet residential area in Mississauga (QEW/ Mississauga Rd). Easily accessible from Etobicoke, Toronto West and Oakville.
The Montessori philosophy is a very natural way to learn, it greatly respects the child’s unique personality by allowing the child to pursue his own interests. The children make their own choices and learn with the use of the Montessori materials, which are mostly auto-didactic.
In addition to Montessori philosophy, which we view as a very holistic way of learning, we strive to instil the appreciation of nature by providing a lot of outdoor time in our garden, where children plant, rake, water plants, harvest and also paint, read or play freely.
Montessori in the Woods also focuses on proper nutrition, which plays a very important role in our program. We believe that eating well can not be separated from learning. Therefore we cook fresh plant-based lunches and snacks everyday. Our students participate in the food preparation and learn about the ingredients and their nutrition.
If you would like to learn more about each of the aspects of our program, please read our website and schedule a tour to meet and discuss in person.
“To consider the school as a place where instruction is given is one point of view.
But, to consider the school as a preparation for life is another.
In the latter case, the school must satisfy all the needs of life.”
- Maria Montessor
