Montessori Achievement Centre

  • Montessori Achievement Centre is to nurture your child and to help you with the important work of guiding his or her intellectual, social, emotional and physical development. Respecting and nurturing your dignity and ability is a critical element of our program.
  • In Montessori Achievement Centre classrooms, our teachers address the specific needs of your child, who learns through work, play and practice with hands-on materials. Our teachers are keenly aware of your child's development needs and introduce new challenges and materials accordingly.
  • Our children develop a love of learning that shines through as they treat their materials with care, returning each apparatus to its proper place at the end of each activity.
