We have one graduate, one incoming student and two current students at Fraser Woods. It is a terrific Montessori school that creates an environment that allows each student to develop at their pace. The inclusive and collaborative environment also promotes social development that I find unique and refreshing. The school caters to the individual and engages parents in the learning journey. It places the educational emphasis on understanding the concept behind an approach, idea or formula. In this way, children learn how to problem solve and learn to appreciate the different ways to do this. While Montessori's roots are now over 100 years old, the educational philosophy is more relevant today than it was then.

Children love to learn at Fraser Woods Montessori School! Visit the school and you'll feel the kids' joy as they're spread out in the classrooms or halls, conferring together or concentrating deeply on their own. In addition to a fine academic program, FWM provides a safe community where children learn compassion, self confidence, and a sense of social responsibility.
