Our school, Our philosophy

The early learning years are a crucial time for children to acquire social skills and a love of learning.

Our school provides a safe and nurturing environment that will support your child’s participation in an educational curriculum that promotes the academic, physical, emotional, and social development of the whole child. Madison Montessori encourages children to explore independent and self-motivated work, aided through individual instruction and a wide variety of proven learning methods. We strive to promote personal responsibility, critical thinking and community spirit in every one of our students.

Uniforms

At Madison Montessori Academy each child wears a school uniform on a daily basis. We do not want clothing to be a distraction for the children and it also gives them a sense of unity.

Testimonials

  • “My daughter attended MMA and my son still does. I am so confident when I encourage my friends to consider MMA when they are looking for child care. My children have had such a positive experience and learned so much prior to kindergarten. As parents, we do drop off in the morning with peace of mind knowing our children are in great hands!”

    Jackson Family
  • “Our girls have been cared for at Madison Montessori for a total of 9 years now –  from full-time as infants to the before and after care program.  We are so happy and grateful to be able to send our girls to MMA.”

     

    “The programming, the facilities, the food, the location (a 3 min drive from our house!!) are above and beyond what we could have hoped for. But far and above all of those perks – the staff have always, always been so loving, understanding and nurturing to our girls. There have been times the girls have asked to sleep there because they thought favourite staff members lived at the school! The girls have learned so much from the amazing people that work together to make MMA the wonderful place it is. From personal care, to life skills (laundry-folding for the win!!), to kindergarten preparedness – there are so many areas addressed both directly and indirectly that support our efforts as parents that I just can’t list them all. Geoff and I will be forever grateful!!”

  • “I grew up in a family, that has owned and operated a children’s school in Burlington for almost 40 years.  As a result, when my husband and I were searching for a daycare provider for our children in this area, my expectations and standards were set very high.”

     

    “My first son started with the Madison Montessori Academy as a baby in 2012, and not only have my expectations been met, they have far been exceeded.  The MMA staff and enriched program curriculum ensure that your child gets the most out of all learning experiences that they encounter.  It truly is a school for all aspects of your child’s development.  My older children have attended the full time CASA program.  With the small class size and individualized attention to each child, the children advance in all aspects of their development quickly, preparing them properly for the challenges of grade one.  All of the staff at the MMA care about your child and it shows! Just spend some time around the various classrooms, and you will see just how good this school is and what it has to offer.  There is no other place we would consider sending our children, and we will continue to be part of the MMA family for as long as they will have us.”

  • “In 2015 we found ourselves in a predicament as I was returning to work and needed full time care for my infant and my school aged child. The daycare we hired left us stranded 2wks before I returned to work with no notice. In all honesty I was originally looking for a home daycare as my mother ran one when I was a child and I had always assumed a centre wouldn’t be as loving or give as much one on one care. I’m so happy I ignored those thoughts and contacted Madison Montessori. Heather immediately welcomed me and my family with open arms. She was empathetic to our situation and vowed to help us. I have no idea how she did it, but she was able to fit us in and I’ve never been so grateful. The teachers at Madison Montessori have blown us away from the very first day. They are no longer just our children’s teachers, they are our family. The love and care they provide is beyond any of our expectations. On a personal level our youngest has had quite a few health complications and they’ve accommodated us and shown us so much love.”

     

    “We are forever grateful for having them in our lives. They will always be #1 choice for us when anyone asks who to trust with their kids. No hesitation.”

  • “Since his very first day in the Infant program not only we were made to feel comfortable and supported but we could see the level of care, kindness and attention Luke was being given, and it was beyond our wildest expectations.  The program is so well developed, well thought out and clearly designed to allow our children grow and develop but it is truly the people, the staff, that make this experience such an incredible one. They put your mind at ease, they communicate so effectively with the parents and they care so much about our children. It has truly been the most wonderful experience.  Our son Luke has grown into such an incredibly smart, curious, kind and inquisitive little boy and so much of that has to do with his time at Madison Montessori. We are so excited to continue to watch him grow and develop and we are very excited to have our soon to be second born enrolled in 2020 as well.  Thank you to the staff of Madison Montessori Academy for helping us raise our children to be positive, well-adjusted, curious and happy little humans!”

  • “There are not enough words to express how thankful we are for the outstanding care that MMA provides.  Both of our children have attended MMA over the span of 8 years and since day 1 we have felt it has been the best place for a child to be.  The teachers are incredible and provide a warm nurturing environment while also building independence and valuable life skills.  April, Heather and Brenda lead with professionalism, flexibility, above average daily communication and overall exceptional organization.  We highly recommend MMA to everyone!”

    Truly Grateful

    Rebecca and Phil Rankin
  • “As a parent, we entrust the most important little person in our lives to the staff at Madison Montessori every day, and I am grateful for the loving care and guidance he receives. As a first-time mother, it’s beyond emotional to send your child to spend their day with others, yet the directors and teachers at Madison Montessori have made this a wonderful experience for me as a parent.”

     

    “The teachers and director look at each child as an individual, with their own strengths and needs. My son is so lucky to spend his days with awesome teachers who understand his needs, his personality, and handle him with grace. My child has learned so much and continues to share the great activities that go on each day at “school!” He is learning so much and amazes us every day with his new skills, expressions, hand signs and behaviours.”

     

    “The HiMama app is a true blessing for me, as it allows me to keep up with my child’s day and feel involved and in touch, while calming all the “new mom “worries!”

     

    “Thank you to the Madison Montessori staff, directors and organization for an incredible early childhood curriculum that engages and teaches at all steps of the day, and a special thanks to Miss Irene, Miss Kelsey and Miss Ashley and all the infant helpers and staff; they continue to do amazing works of “heart” with all children and we are grateful for you every day!”
