Our mission

Lyonsgate Montessori School is a fully bilingual, CCMA-accredited Montessori programme for children 18 months to 9 years of age. At Lyonsgate we believe in education of the whole child. We believe that each child develops at their own individual pace and that through guided experiential learning and hands-on activity, we can help them reach their full potential. We encourage children in a positive way, setting the foundation for a lifelong love of learning.

    Hello Lyonsgate Montessori Families,

    I want to thank you for reading along all year. My hope is that these weekly updates have helped keep you informed about what's going on at Lyonsgate Montessori School, and offered you glimpses inside your children's Montessori environments.

    It's been a true pleasure getting to know your children this year. I think you have made an excellent choice in choosing Montessori education for your children. My own children attended Montessori and I have seen many Montessori schools in action. Rest assured that Lyonsgate does Montessori right, and very well. Also, know that we don't rest on our laurels; Lyonsgate staff was back at school preparing for next year the day after the year-end concert and graduation.

    Once things are in place we'll be joining your children in a much deserved summer break, and will be back to school mid-August, refreshed and revitalized, getting ready to welcome your returning children to the next stage of their developmental journey, as well as children new to both Lyonsgate and Montessori at all levels. Lyonsgate continues to grow and develop right alongside your children.

    Have an amazing summer together; make memories, plan to have no plan every now and then, get dirty, explore the woods, swim, build, grow, pick, eat, drink, laugh, smile, make other people laugh and smile, do something scary, get up and then go back to bed, invite everyone over for an impromptu BBQ, ride a bike, or learn to ride a bike, go to a festival, ride a bike to a festival, read a book, then read another book, climb some trees, buy fruits and vegetables from a local farmer, slide on waterslides, make a backyard waterslide, make a rope-swing, build a big campfire, go camping, teach the kids to mow the lawn, call in sick cuz it's a nice day, play outside in the pouring rain, play board games, build a model, start a puzzle, finish it if you want, or don't, whatever, it's summer and you and your kids deserve to relax and not care and enjoy each other's company, and we'll hear all about it in September. — Jason.

    Hello Lyonsgate Montessori Families,

    Next week is the last week of school! These last few weeks of the school year always seem to sneak up on us more quickly than a toddler can dismantle a tidy house. Your children are very busy finishing up work and seeking out last-minute presentations, and your children's Montessori guides are busy preparing final reports and making sure everyone is ready for next year, and for a well-deserved summer break.

    Your children's Montessori guides have also been busy preparing for your Parent-Teacher conferences, so we don't have individual classroom updates this week. Instead, you each get a personal update, live and in person. We'll see most of you on Friday, June 14. Remember, there is no school on Parent-Teacher conference Friday, but childcare is available at the school during your conference timeslot.


    Concert and Graduation Info: Please join us on Thursday, June 20, for our year-end concert and graduation ceremony. Please plan to arrive at the Primary (Aberdeen) campus between 2:15-2:25 and proceed straight to the Sanctuary (auditorium) downstairs. The show will begin promptly at 2:30 and will run until approximately 3:30.

    Please Note: There is no After School or Extended Care on Thursday, June 20. This is our last (sort of) full school day for the 2018.2019 school year. The next day...


    Friday, June 21, is a PD Day, but we will meet you all at the Dundas Driving Park (71 Cross St., Dundas) at 3:30 for our annual year-end super fantastic picnic of fun. Be sure to pack a water bottle, and a bathing suit and towel as there is a great splash pad.

    We have reserved Kitchenette 1.

    The picnic will be pot luck, and this year we are asking everyone to please Bring Your Own Water Bottle to help alleviate the plastic in the land fills. Thank you.

    Last week, you should have received an email notification for access to an online sign-up sheet for picnic items, or you can click here to sign up. Thank you.
