We will be hosting an Open House, Thursday, Feb 14th 8:30 -10:30 am

Openings for students from Kindergarten to Grade 6 for the 2013/2014 school year will be determined by space available. Montessori is a school of choice in SD73 and has been a successful program at Aberdeen since 2003 and in the Kamloops district since 2001. If your child:

Has had Montessori training AND/OR; Is self motivated and independent; Likes to solve problems; Enjoys working collaboratively; They may be a very good candidate for this program.

The Montessori classroom offers a prepared environment designed to allow children to become increasingly independent, to choose their own work and to learn at their own pace. Montessori offers a research style of learning in Mathematics, Language Arts, Cultural Studies, History, Physical Geography, Botany, Practical Life, and more. If this sounds like something you’d like to learn more about, please call Anthoney Rempel at the school (250-372-5844).
