Helping Young Minds Blossom

At Ancaster Montessori School, we are committed to providing each child with the necessary impetus to develop and bloom into a well-rounded individual. Helping children learn through fun activities, games, dance and music lessons, we are dedicated to ensuring the holistic development of your child. With the support of our caring and attentive staff, we strive to bring out the best in each child. At Ancaster Montessori School, we strongly believe that the character of a child is shaped in the formative years. With this as our motivation, we have designed a unique and well thought out bilingual program for young children. Call us to know more.

Value and Mission

We understand that every child is unique, with a distinct skillset and an unmatched personality. We endeavour to provide a spirited and active environment for children to realize the numerous possibilities around them.


We believe that personality development starts early. It is our mission to nurture young minds in a value-driven, lively and energetic environment where they can grow into responsible young children. We constantly strive to provide the children with an environment conducive to learning through zestful activities. Call us to know more about our distinctive program and curriculum.

Experienced Teachers

At Ancaster Montessori School, we have qualified and experienced teachers who have years of experience in giving instruction to young children. The attentive and responsive teachers are well-versed in effective learning techniques to help children understand better. They are committed to providing each child with comfort and ease to express herself freely and look forward to learning. Contact us to know more about our curriculum.

Our Learning Environment

Our school community of staff, students and parents now have four newly-renovated classrooms, a beautiful fenced-in playground, an auditorium used for recess during inclement weather and social events, and the use of other rooms within the Ryerson United Church, such as the beautiful Fireside room.


Admission begins between 15 months and 3 years of age. Our full Montessori program is three years. Quality Montessori programs count on parents’ three-year commitment; however, actual financial commitment is for one year at a time. New students are allowed a 30-day trial period. Application for admission for upcoming summer and fall programs can be made as of Feb 1st. Admissions are then on a first come, first served basis.

Get in touch with our staff to book an appointment today. We shall be pleased to give you a tour of our facility and curriculum. We are accepting registrations for the session starting in 2021.

The secret of good teaching is to regard the child’s intelligence as a fertile field in which seeds may be sown, to grow under the heat of a flaming imagination.
