Kew Park Montessori Day School was founded in 2000 in the Beaches and has been located at 79 Hiawatha Road in Leslieville since 2002. Tacha Pearce-Miller and Tarynn Parry assumed ownership of the school in 2006. Both Tacha and Tarynn bring experience, enthusiasm and energy to their roles as principals of Kew Park.
Our dedicated and experienced classroom teachers, specialist teachers, childcare and support staff are an integral part of our tightly knit Kew Park community. Our teachers act as facilitators of learning and closely observe the students in order to best meet the children’s needs. Teachers develop individual lesson plans for all students and maintain detailed records of their progress.
All our classroom teachers are certified Montessori teachers from accredited Montessori teacher training institutions. We are committed to teacher development and our staff participate in workshops, off-site observations, special training seminars and educational conferences throughout the year. Mentoring between our staff is also encouraged. We are always trying to learn more and apply what we have learned.
Kew Park Montessori Day School is a small school of approximately 100 students. We believe that young children develop best in an intimate school environment. At our school, everyone knows one another and children feel comfortable and safe to be themselves, share their ideas and take risks. Our students leave here with the confidence to meet challenges in the next stage of their lives.
