Tour the Montessori Learning Centre in Pickering

If you find yourself curious about what a Montessori-based daycare could offer your child when you go back to work, make some time in your calendar this Saturday to attend the Montessori Learning Centre of Pickering‘s Open House event. This centre is open to children as young as 6 months old – a great option if you are interested in care that is Montessori-based.

The Montessori Learning Centre of Pickering Open House event will be held Saturday, February 28th, from 10.30am-12pm at 401 Kingston Road, Pickering. If you’re unable to make this event for the open house, you can check out this video for a quick preview of the facility.

Cost: Entry to the open house event is free.

Edit: I’m updating this post after hearing from one of my readers who reminded me to mention that not all Montessori schools are equal in terms of accreditation and training. A Montessori education can be expensive, so it’s important to understand what you are paying for. At the time of writing, no information was found to indicate that this location was AMI Certified.

Nicola from the Montessori Learning Centre of Pickering was kind enough to provide me with more information to best understand how accreditation works: “Montessori schools can choose to be accredited through CCMA – Canadian Council of Montessori Administrators – receiving acknowledgement for meeting the required  Montessori standards in all areas of the programme.  AMI is one of the Montessori teacher training institutes recognized by CCMA. So, while there may be a couple of schools under the AMI acknowledgement,  the accredited schools in Ontario can be recognized by CCMA certification”.
