The Montessori School of Regina, Inc. is a private, non-profit, independent school with a focus on child-centered learning that helps each student realize his/her own potential. As an alternative school for pre-primary and elementary programs, the Montessori School of Regina strives to create a respectful, peaceful environment where students can nurture and grow their unique talents , thus developing a foundation for lifelong independent learning. We have pre-primary programs for children aged 2.5 to 6 (including kindergarten year) and elementary programs for children from Grades 1-8.
Montessori children are unusually adaptable. They learn to work independently and in groups. Since they have been encouraged to make their own decisions from an early age, Montessori children are problem-solvers who can make appropriate choices, manage their time well, and navigate their way through new situations.
Currently, we offer two locations for our Pre-Primary programs and one location for our Elementary program. Our Head Office is at our McTavish Street location, where you can contact us to ask questions or submit forms.
PRE-PRIMARY ENVIRONMENT (Both locations)
The pre-primary classroom is made up of children of mixed ages from two and one half years of age to five years. Each child is usually with the same teacher for three years.
To receive the full benefits of a Montessori education, a child who enrolls remains in the program for three years. The best analogy would be to say, “having poured the concrete it also needs an opportunity to cure” for the foundation to be sound. A true Montessori program works in the same way. Therefore, the importance of the three-year cycle is so crucial.
We cannot stress enough the importance of full completion of the Three-Year Cycle at Montessori School of Regina, Inc.
MONTESSORI ELEMENTARY (McTavish Street location)
A Montessori child enters the elementary program with curiousity, self-discipline, initiative, persistence, concentration and a positive attitude towards school. Although some of the materials from pre-school are present, they are used in more complex ways. New materials are introduced as the child moves towards abstract thinking, developing the imagination to embrace concepts larger than the immediate environment.
Although following the Saskatchewan curriculum as presented by the Ministry of Education, emphasis is placed on the connections between the different areas of study, not a mere presentation of detail. A complete Montessori education provides your child with an integrated, individualized and academically challenging program.
French and Music
Students of all ages participate in small group, French and Music classes facilitated by our B.Mus.Ed teacher. The classes enhance the classroom experience by providing students with well-rounded instruction by a specialist teacher of the alternate subject areas. The Enrichment Classes are included as part of The Regular Program and are already factored into the tuition of The Regular Program. Music activities complement the child’s work. Folk songs and historical ballads meld with the area of history. Singing “Oh, Canada” or building their own musical instruments such as maracas, flutes, and drums integrates with their cultural studies and art.
Art, Culture and Physical Activity
A vitalizing part of the already integrated Montessori environment, is art, culture and physical activity. Art projects are a natural extension of classroom work for every age group. These projects reinforce and expand academic and artistic skills. Jewish, Ukrainian, First Nation and Metis are some of the visitors received by the students at Montessori. They welcome and learn from the stories, the art, the music of many cultures entering their classrooms. Visiting a sacred site and sleeping overnight in a teepee can lead to many conversations. Physical activity is also integrated into the day, whether through a walk in the park, digging/planting in a garden or kicking a soccer ball.
Each year the Montessori School of Regina offers summer camps to children ages 3 - 6! These half and full day camps are open to the public.
In 2018 camps will run from July 9 to August 17 from 9am- 4pm with options for before and after care!
