Aspen Grove Montessori School offers Toddler and Casa programs for children from 18 months to 6 years of age. Our academic programs operate from Monday to Friday during September to June. We also offer optional March and Summer Camps.
Our regular school hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with an optional extended hours program for early drop-offs (7 a.m. – 9 a.m.) and late pick-ups (4 p.m. – 6 p.m.) to meet the needs of family schedules.
Aspen Grove Montessori School’s curriculum is accredited by the Canadian Council of Montessori Administrators (CCMA). We are credited by providing an authentic and comprehensive Montessori learning environment presented by professional and qualified staff and teachers.
Aspen Grove Montessori school offers integrated programs such as French and Yoga lessons, in addition to the Montessori curriculum, to broaden the student's learning experience. All integrated programs are included in our program fees.
We provide French lessons 4 days each week to our Toddler and Casa students. Children enjoy a fun introduction to French through a variety of activities (e.g. songs, games, and stories). Manipulatives, nomenclature and gestures are used to assist the children in grasping and absorbing the concept being presented. After completing our 3-year Casa program, students will gain advance French skills to enable them to connect into French Immersion Schools if parents choose to continue develop the children passion in French.
Physical fitness is vital for children to stay healthy and happy. Our campus features a 4,500ft2 outdoor playground alongside an indoor gym where children take part in daily fitness activities and remain active all year-round. Our specially designed physical education and yoga program empowers the students to strengthen their motor skills, coordination, and balance.
Aspen Grove Montessori School offers optional extended hours programs for early drop-offs and/or late pick-ups to meet the needs of family schedules.
Aspen Grove Montessori School provides a variety of after school programs to widen children’s horizons. Our after school programs promote the exploration of the child’s senses and the further development of their academic potential in areas such as art, robotics, music and language.
The robotics program enables students to explore science, technology and math in a fun, hands-on way while allowing them to excel in their abilities to problem solve and work as a team.
Our art program provides children with training in drawing and painting skills, colour theories, and art material knowledge to help students build a solid foundation in the art of expression.
Students take part in school trips to expand their horizons and further develop their understanding of the world around them; a vital component of Montessori education. School trips provide our children with real life experiences of the many concepts learned in class. These may include visiting local farms, museums, The Ontario Science Centre, and places of historical interest.
(e.g. March Science Camp)
Our March Camp takes place during March Break and offers an opportunity for children to explore areas of study in addition to their Montessori education. The theme of our March Camp varies each year to offer new experiences to our students. During our March Science Camp, the children participate in science experiments and engage
in hands-on activities to familiarize themselves with concepts such as cloud formation and chemical reactions. Montessori materials are also introduced to provide a comprehensive curriculum to the children.
(e.g. Summer STEM Camp)
Our Summer Camp is an 8 week program that combines fun, knowledge and Montessori education during the summer break. Our Summer Camps are also based on various themes, which differ each year. The Summer STEM Camp raises the child’s awareness and knowledge in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math through group work, experiments, field trips and in-class visits.Learn More
