Richmond Montessori School, situated in the heart of Winnipeg, offers an excellent quality childcare program and Montessori Education for children aged 2 - 6 years.
Children will grow physically, psychologically, socially, and emotionally, while having an enjoyable experience and reaching their fullest potential, based on the teachings of Dr. Maria Montessori.
Richmond Montessori School enrolls children between 18 months to 6 years of age and provides a multi-age learning environment. A mixed-age group provides opportunities for peer learning/teaching and fosters social development and responsibility.
Our classroom is designed to encourage children to work at their own pace while using scientifically designed Montessori materials. This enables the child to correct themselves with the help of built-in control of error within each material, allowing the child to explore and perfect their own work.
Children are guided to work with the material until a level of competence is reached. This, in itself, is an evaluation of the child's ability. Each child is taught individually, giving the teachers immediate insight into the child's grasp of every concept taught.
The school will operate from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm, Monday to Friday. The school will be closed for two weeks during the Christmas break, as well as a week during the summer break.
The school will also be closed on all Statutory and Civic holidays, including Easter Monday.
“Children acquire knowledge through experience in the environment.”
