An Environment that Nurtures and Educates Your Kid in North Vancouver
Watch any group of children interacting with each other and their environment - be it their playroom, their garden, the local park, or their classroom - and one thing quickly becomes clear: Children love
As educators and caregivers of your children, we are dedicated to providing an enriched environment that inspires and nurtures children’s natural love of learning as a life-long process.
Our genuine commitment is to have children experience being part of a community by encouraging them to truly accept themselves and embrace the differences around them.
The Montessori Classroom
Montessori Mes Petits classrooms are indeed a child’s world, specially made to the size, the pace and the interests of boys and girls between two and half and five.
We have divided the classrooms by age: the Lower Classroom hosts children from 3 to 4 years of age, while the Upper Classroom hosts children from 4 to school age; Mes Petits children leave our center ready to enter grade 1.
At Montessori Mes Petits Academy, we offer days packed full of activities. And guess what? They are all planned to develop children’s Physical, Intellectual, Language, Emotional and Social development, all of it in a nurturing and fun atmosphere.
Kids learn best when they are having fun at the same time that they are treated with respect! We tailor our lessons to each child’s unique learning style. Whether your child is a visual, auditory, or kinesthetic learner, our activities will engage and inspire!
Some of the activities listed here are just a guide of the many things that our care and education’s 2 ½ to 5 years of age execute partly in class, partly outdoors:
