Early Childhood Education in Burlington

Children learn better in aesthetically beautiful environments that are designed specifically to make them feel comfortable to draw out their true potential. At Burlington Montessori Preschool, we focus on developing such environments and activities. Our hands-on activities ensure that children learn in the modality that is most suited to their developmental level. We provide children with the opportunity to grow in an environment that fosters independence, creativity, success, coordination, concentration, and self-esteem. Schedule an appointment to learn about our different programs.

Our Philosophy

We believe that childhood is the best time for growing and learning. Childhood should be filled with joys, friendships, success and independent growth. We believe that each child is unique as an individual and should be guided through learning at a personal level. Every child is competent, capable, curious and rich in potential.  We believe that a child can be successful in all he chooses when given the positive reinforcement to attempt new and challenging experiences.

Our Program

We offer a program to meet the needs of every child through the use of Montessori equipment and the guidance of specially trained staff. The children work towards the development of self-esteem, coordination, independence and concentration. As the children explore the experiences our Montessori school offers, their ability to make appropriate choices, work cooperatively and self-regulate is fostered. The children are encouraged to participate in art and music activities, group activities and a French program. We also offer a wide range of computer experiences.

 

The children at BMP have the opportunity to learn about their environment and community during theme-based activities and field trips. Our school is your child's home away from home. Our environment promotes a safe, secure and positive place for your child to grow as an individual as well as be recognized as an important contributor to the group.

 

Our staff is warm and caring. They take the needs of each child into account at the start of each new day.

Clothing and Possessions

At our preschool, we do not wear uniforms. Your child should be dressed in clothing that allows him/ her to move freely and comfortably as many tasks are performed on the floor. All clothing should be labelled with your child’s name. Your child should have a change of clothes in his/her school bag. On gym days, please dress your child in jogging suits and running shoes. 


To collect and carry the beautiful work your child will produce, a school bag may be necessary. 


As a Practical Life experience focusing on the environment and promoting responsibility, each child will bring a small plant to care for and keep it at school. Please choose a strong plant.

School Closures Due to Inclement Weather/Emergency

If the school needs to be closed due to inclement weather or an emergency, please watch CHCH TV for details. You may also be able to pick up the notice of closure on our website and Facebook
