About North Star
Providing an education as unique as your child.
To inspire a life-long love of learning in children.
We provide significant learning and growth opportunities for our students, faculty and staff.
We value each individual and their contribution. We seek to understand and appreciate each other’s differences.
Growth & Development
We provide a nurturing, engaging and challenging environment in which each child develops at their pace academically, physically, socially and emotionally.
We take an active role in the community through educational activities & leading the independent schools by example. We share selflessly.
North Star Montessori offers a program which promotes and sustains:
- Academic preparation
- Compassion & Empathy
- Exploration of individual potential
- The ability to analyze & discriminate information
- Critical thinking skills
- Social responsibility
- Inner discipline and a sense of order
- Respect and patience for oneself and others
Newcomers to our school are always struck by how beautiful and peaceful our classrooms are, and the warmth and serenity that permeates through our learning environments. Visitors often comment on the positive and respectful interactions between students, and between students and teachers.
Peeking through doors, it’s hard not to be impressed by the activity and productivity in each room – children working in groups, some individually, and other being helped by a teacher. Each child is completely absorbed in the tasks before them in a manner that meets their individual needs.
This is the Montessori Method at work. North Star Montessori offers integrated art, music, French and physical-education programs, regular community excursions and more. There is so much for the students to discover!

Our Parent Guide has all the information you need to know about your child’s Montessori education.
We value the supervision, individual attention and the nurturing environment North Star offers, as well as the willingness of the staff to work with us to reinforce appropriate social behaviour. The values of the Montessori Method are incredible. I feel good leaving my child in the morning knowing she will be safe and not exposed to most of the negative situations of public school.
As an alternative private school, North Star Montessori allows our child to retain her uniqueness and talents while acquiring knowledge about herself, others and the world around her. Education is not only about lessons for the mind but for the whole being.
Our daughter was with North Star from Kindergarten through Year 6 of the elementary program. Her voice was heard and she was respected by students and staff. The Montessori philosophy and teachings are a big part of that.
