Montessori at Barrie

The Montessori classroom is designed as a safe and secure environment for social and emotional learning which is taught, practiced and occurs spontaneously. Nurturing each child’s spirit is a sacred charge. As children walk in the door, they are welcomed warmly with respect and joy. Each child is someone who matters to the teacher. Teacher modeling of caring and compassion are tangible lessons transmitted to children.
