Thank you to Mr. Andy Barber for giving us a tour of the HMCS Haida that is currently docked in Hamilton and serves as a National Historic Site run by Parks Canada. Through a personal tour our Senior Elementary students heard Mr Barber's first hand experience as a Canadian who served in the navy on the HMCS Haida during the Korean War.

Our toddler program is designed to help children 18 months - 3 years old to develop their order, concentration and control of movement through practical life experiences. In this stage, children are in their most formative period of development. They are able to absorb impressions from all aspects of their surroundings, and have a natural love of learning.

Childhood is not a race to see how quickly a child can read, write, or count, childhood is a small window of time to learn and develop at the pace which is right for each individual child.

“We must help the child to act for himself, will for himself, think for himself; this is the art of those who aspire to serve the spirit.”

"There is a great sense of community within the Montessori classroom, where children of differing ages work together in an atmosphere of cooperation rather than competitiveness. There is respect for the environment and for the individuals within it, which comes through experience of freedom within the community."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
