What is the minimum age for admittance to Alive?
Our preshool program starts at 2.5 years old, although we accept children as 2 years old. We run a full Montessori program from preschool through senior Kindergarten. From grade one, we still use many of the Montessori materials and principles, but also work with the Canadian curriculum to ease the transition if the child goes into the public system at some point. We also offer extra-curricular classes such as music, salsa and drama, which are included in the monthly tuition fee.
How long is a school day?
Our school day runs from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday, throughout the school year. Parents requiring extended care for their Pre-Primary, Primary, or Elementary student are welcome to enrol in our Extended Care Program.

Why Alive Montessori school?
All parents hope to find the best educational program for their children.
For more than a century, Montessori has been thriving around the globe, and contemporary research validates the effectiveness of the Montessori Method. Several key elements of the approach meet the educational goals today’s parents have for their children, including growing into capable people who will be have a strong sense of self, the ability to connect with others, and the potential to be productive throughout their lives. With Montessori, that growth starts early. The early years (birth through age 6) are a critical time to set a strong foundation for who a child will become and the role she or he will play in the future.
A Montessori education develops students who are capable, accountable, knowledgeable people who have the strong sense of self they will need to thrive in the real world.
"Free the child's potential, and you will transform him into the world."
