The goal at La Fontaine Montessori is to encourage your child’s self-confidence, self-motivation, and independence within a French Immersion environment. We foster your child’s ability to explore the world through senses and movement. La Fontaine Montessori has structured its programs in order to fulfill the needs of each child at a certain age. The staff is committed to not only the physical needs of each child but also the formation of their character, emotional and intellectual development. Every opportunity is taken to provide enriching experiences to cultivate your child’s natural curiosity and interests.
Dr. Maria Montessori, the woman behind the method, believed, “that education begins at birth and that the first few years of life, being the most formative, are the most important, both physically and mentally”. Through normal and gradual learning processes, behaviour patterns are established. Learning in the years from birth to six years of age will largely determine the kind of person the child will become.
The benefits of choosing a Montessori childcare and learning centre, like La Fontaine Montessori include:
- development of the whole child as a preparation for life
- respect for the needs, rights, and dignity of each child as a full and independent person
- respect for learning for the process, not the products it produces
- development of independence, self-confidence, and self-esteem
- fosters good health and nutritional eating habits
- develops independent thinkers and problem solvers
- builds empathy from a young age
- encourages a deep respect for nature and all living things

What Parents Say?
I have known Sophia for years both personally and professionally as a teacher in the TDSB and I have to say that she was one of our favourite teachers! I have visited her new Montessori school during the Open House this Summer and was so impressed! I only wish she had opened it when my kids were young enough to attend. The small class sizes and organic meals for starters are amazing. Add in her special touches like micro-greening right in the classroom and the beautifully landscaped outdoor space and this place is literally a dream come true! I remember Sophia telling me that there weren't any schools around her that shared her philosophy of what she envisioned for her kids in a Montessori school so she created her own. Now that's an entrepreneurial spirit! Her warm and compassionate energy is an asset in anything she does and I have a feeling that we will see more 'La Fontaine' Montessori schools in our future! Come to Toronto next!!!Sincerely,Meray Mansour
