Smart Start Montessori School

... serving the community since 2000!

"3 years ago on this day, I was desperately looking for the best school that would accept my son .... Before that time, I was not familiar with Montessori schools. However, after getting educated about Dr. Maria Montessori's methods and how she started her school, I knew in my heart that my son was going to a Montessori school...

"My husband and I came to the school to meet with Mrs. Meru. When we came into that door, we felt the peace and calmness of the place and everyone in it. We looked around the school - it's like a house, in fact it is a house..."  More ...

Smart Start Montessori School is located on a beautifully landscaped property, fully air-conditioned facility at Kennedy Road & Huntingwood Drive, just minutes away from highway 401 and the GO station, providing a wonderful space for children to grow and learn. The school provides an authentic Montessori learning environment for children 18 months through kindergarten.

the Montessori Environment

What is a Montessori prepared environment?  It is a place where children can feel at home, and where they are actively and purposefully engaged.  Above all, it is calm and peaceful, and this is perhaps its most striking feature and how it differs from other preschool groups.

"Education of even a very small child does not aim at preparing him for school, but for life" - Dr. Maria Montessori.

Montessori Philosophy

The home environment is designed mostly for adults. The Montessori is designed to be an extension of the home environment, with child-sized items on low shelves easily accessible by young children.  The children work and learn in a non-competitive atmosphere. The Montessori child is free to learn in an ordered atmosphere designed to enable progression of the child in challenging and stimulating ways leading to the child's own accomplishments at his own pace.
