“Whoever touches the life of the child touches the most sensitive point of a whole which has roots in the most distant past and climbs toward the infinite future.”

- Dr. Maria Montessori
Lakeview Montessori School may seem like a dot on the map compared to the vast network of publicly funded schools in the city. But despite our size, we have a huge impact on our community through our unique approach to education that’s equal parts innovation and tradition.

Montessori is an educational approach that truly puts the children first. It allows children to grow and develop at their own pace while teaching them that independence does not equal isolation. We are all part of a greater community and each one of us can have a positive impact on our world.

But, unfortunately, Montessori education in this area of the country comes with a price tag. As an independently funded school in Ontario, we don’t receive any support from the provincial government. Make no mistake: we’re an independent school, but we’re not exclusive or elitist – nor do we want to be. In fact, we believe that in a perfect world, every child would receive a Montessori education. Until that dream becomes a reality, we need your help to continue to provide this innovative education option in Essex County.
Ask any school administrator – regardless of the school board or location – what their biggest issue is, and they’ll likely say “having to do more with less money.” Our school is not immune to this reality. In fact, we may be worse off. The cost to offer high quality Montessori education continues to increase along with our other expenses. Yet we do not receive any funding from the government.

Like any school, our expenses continue to rise. Despite that fact, we want to ensure tuition doesn’t skyrocket. Close to 99% of our operational costs, including capital improvements, faculty and staff pay, and programs are covered by tuition.

To continue to provide quality Montessori education in the Essex County area, we need YOUR support.
