Creative Kids Montessori Childcare creates an environment that is clean, safe, nurturing and carefully prepared to provide positive learning experiences. Our natural setting is an important part of our Montessori curriculum.
Creative Kids Montessori Childcare strives to meet the needs of the whole child: nurturing the love of learning, creating opportunities for growth and independence and bringing about self-respect and positive self-worth.
Creative Kids Montessori Childcare strives to create a positive, caring atmosphere for parents and their children to flourish and grow. Our focus is to nurture respect and understanding for each other, nature and our planet.
Creativity thrives in an atmosphere of acceptance and trust. Montessorians recognize that children, from toddlers to teenagers, learn and express themselves in a very individual way. Making choices, taking risks, self-correction of mistakes, openess to different perspectives, and the growth of self-confidence all encourage creativity to flourish.
The children are encouraged to develop qualities of citizenship and stewardship through an understanding and respect for cultural diversity and environmental awareness. The teacher shows an understanding of children’s progress and keeps clear and adequate records, as a continuous form of assessment.
We are a collaborative Montessori community. We embrace diversity of high quality Montessori teachers while upholding standards. We encourage administrators to introduce a culture of self reflection and in their commitment to ongoing improvement. We encourage mentorship.
Integrating Arts into Academics is a proven method for developing the Love of Learning in a young mind.
"My son loves going to school at Creative Kids because he feels safe and valued by his teachers and because he is provided with so many opportunities to learn through work & play, develop new skills that help to foster a sense of independence and to learn new information about the world around him. The teachers at Creative Kids Montessori provide wonderful care to the children and they carefully plan a program that is meaningful, engaging and fun. They do this while honouring the children's’ innate sense of curiosity and desire to learn."
"Creative Kids Montessori is absolutely wonderful! Our daughters thrived and loved every minute of their time there.
