The Momentum Montessori Preschool Program is designed to meet the needs of children from 2.5 years to 4 years of age.
The Preschool Program offers a daily immersion of Mathematics, Reading, and Writing in the English language while building student empathy, patience, self-confidence and self-worth. Our goal is to educate students to think globally but act locally by also teaching them about technology, physical literacy, and music. We will develop our students’ understanding of the English language while also teaching them to speak Mandarin, French, and Spanish.
With a variety of student-based learning opportunities, our teachers will guide our students to enjoy the process of exploring and discovering the world around them. This is highlighted by our experiential learning program which will take students out of the classroom and explore the best attractions the great city of Toronto has to offer. We also invite educational programs and professionals from the community to bring their passion for education to our school. When we have visitors, we have students take on leadership roles and act as Momentum Montessori ambassadors for our welcomed guests.
Healthy active living is a cornerstone for Momentum Montessori and we offer up daily physical education opportunities of moderate to vigorous activity in a fun-filled environment while promoting proper hygiene. Our school believes in making the healthy choice, the easy choice and that is why we offer a catered food program by Real Food for Real Kids which is entirely based on organic, non-genetically modified, or artificially flavoured food. A healthy start is a smart start.
The incorporation of technology in education has been shown to provide even higher levels of comprehension with learner development and cognitive growth, which is why Momentum Montessori uses SMART technology in its curriculum. Using SMART board technology and student tablets helps provide a fun and interactive learning stream while developing student confidence with technology.
An introduction to the Arts is vital for a developing mind. At Momentum Montessori we teach our students a variety of performing arts skills including singing, public speaking, movement to music, and instrumental music. Our students will gain experience with playing the piano, percussion, and string instruments. Momentum Montessori encourages our students to have as much fun as possible playing music and grow a deep-seeded appreciation for the Arts.
Multiple Learning Strategies
At Momentum we believe the Montessori Method is an excellent way to introduce learners to a wonderful life of learning but we also believe in honouring the traditional teaching strategies students will encounter once they graduate. This is why we incorporate multiple learning strategies in our lessons which prepares our students for a successful school career.
The Preschool program operates from Monday to Friday from 8:00am-6:00pm.
Momentum Montessori always strives to exceed The Child Care and Early Years Act, 2014 (CCEYA) minimum staffing requirements. The student to teacher ratio is 8:1, with at least one Registered Early Childhood Educator (RECE) or staff otherwise approved by the Ministry of Education. For classes with more than 17 students, two RECE will be hired. The maximum class size for our Preschool program is 24.
Momentum Montessori fees are reviewed annually and the major source of funding for the centre. Our fee is calculated based on the program and how many days a week your child attends Momentum. For the exact tuition fees and a campus tour, please contact us.
