Why Choose Milestone?

AN AUTHENTIC MONTESSORI EDUCATION

Any school can call themselves a Montessori, but it takes years to be an accredited member of the Canadian Council of Montessori Administrators (CCMA). That’s why we are proud to be a CCMA applicant member for accreditation, and the only CCMA-associated school in Ajax.

We believe that becoming an accredited school builds trust with you, the parent, because you can count on us to deliver a high quality education that meets the CCMA’s standards.

KNOWLEDGABLE, ACCREDITED AND CARING STAFF

We take pride in the caring and supportive environment we’ve created for our students and our incredible staff members are a large part of that.

All of our staff members, from our Montessori-trained teachers and registered early childhood educators (RECEs) to our administrative and support staff, are focused on providing an enjoyable and fulfilling experience for our students.

Our Casa classrooms have two Montessori-trained and accredited teachers. Each room in our Toddler Community also boasts an accredited Toddler Montessori teacher.

It’s all part of our dedication to providing an honest and authentic Montessori education for our students.

NUTRITIOUS AND DELICIOUS FOOD

Good food feeds the growing and learning brain. We are proud to partner with Food for Tots (FFT), a catering company that creates healthy, delicious, high quality food that children love.

The FFT facility is 100% nut-free, pork-free and shellfish-free. Allergy-free meals are prepared in a separate area by a Red Seal Chef, and FFT offers both Halal and vegetarian options.

BRIGHT AND CLEAN ENVIRONMENT

The Ontario Ministries of Education and Health mandate standards of cleanliness for schools — of course, we go beyond. We know that our students love to learn in a bright, cheerful and clean environment, so that’s what we provide each and every day.

Many studies demonstrate the positive effect of natural light and each of our classrooms boast large windows that allow for plenty of natural light, a benefit to both our students and staff.

SAFE, SECURE AND IN TOUCH

Building a love of learning means nothing if a child doesn’t have a safe place to do it. Milestone Montessori is a safe and secure space guarded by a state-of-the-art security system. No unauthorized personnel are allowed to enter our school and policies around student pick-up are in effect and strictly enforced.

We utilize modern technology to stay in touch with our parents. Through the Homeroom phone app, teachers securely and privately post photos of students at work and play in their classrooms. It’s a great way to stay in touch with our parents and allows them see what their child is working on.
