St. James Montessori School provides a challenging & stimulating environment that enables your child to develop independence, self-confidence, initiative, concentration and social skills.

These skills combined with an emphasis on self-control and discipline provide excellent preparation for the transition to Kindergarten and Grade One. We offer quality care and education for up to 20 children aged 2.5 years - 6 years in a 2.5 hour morning or afternoon program 3-5 days a week.

The St. James Montessori Program

Our program aims to provide a challenging and stimulating environment helping the child to grow and develop Independence, Self-confidence, Initiative, Concentration, and Social skills.

Practical Life Exercises assist children in learning to take care of themselves, each other, and their environment. Sensorial Activities provide specific opportunities for exploration to order, broaden, and refine sense perceptions. Language Activities nourish the child's vocabulary and enhance self-expression. 

An introduction to the phonetic sounds of the alphabet lays a solid foundation on which to build reading and writing skills. Mathematic Activities offer an exciting, concrete experience of numerical concepts and operations. Cultural Activities in science, geography, history, art and music deepen the children's awareness of the world around them. Music Activities include movement, speech, dramatic play, songs, rhythm, and percussion instruments. Physical Activities develop gross motor skills.
