“One of the best Montessori schools in Oakville – my son absolutely loves coming here every day. There are so many educational activities that Helen and the staff do with the children from show and tell, drama, yoga, daily French class, and library to name a few! The teachers are not only experienced but extremely hands on and loving. They genuinely care about your child and you feel the warmth of this school as soon as you walk in the door. The menu is always changing with the seasons, you recieve daily progress reports sent to you (pictures included!) and the outdoor space for the children is unheard of – huge outdoor playground, enclosed deck for too hot/cold days, and it is completely enclosed by trees and greenery. I highly recommend to any parent looking for an excellent Montessori School for their children. Great job Helen and staff!!” – Jenn E
“I cannot say enough good things about WH. Helen is wonderful, very organized and is very accommodating, and the teachers are just amazing! My son has been going there since March (would have started him sooner if they had an infant room!), and we’ve since discovered that his development is slightly delayed. Helen, Ms. Fiona, Ms. Duleeni and Ms. Sonia have been absolutely instrumental in advancing my son’s development, and offer us and him so much support. They are very flexible and want to do what’s best for our child. And the fact that my son has the opportunity to interact with Ms. Arun and Ms. Archana is the cherry on the topping. In addition to the family-like atmosphere of the school, I LOVE the physical building. It’s a very intimate environment, and each kid has an opportunity to be who they are. Finally, the education is great! English, French, Mandarin, Yoga and Music – what more can we want? I highly recommend WH – don’t go looking anywhere else!” – Toujan A
“I had been looking for a daycare in Oakville for a few months and visited quite a few centres in the neighborhood. But nothing was quite right for my son. I went to Western Heights’ open house a couple of weeks ago and was really impressed by the cleanliness of the school. The whole school was freshly painted with new Montessori material and with lots of great natural light. The owner was very friendly and explained their program in great detail. The part I love the most is they have French, Music and Yoga classes! I signed up my child right away! If your are looking for Montessori school in Oakville, you should definitely visit Western Heights!” – Julie A
“The new owner did a fantastic job transforming this daycare to a wonderful Montessori school. My son was in the preschool (now the casa) room at the Centre – he loves going there everyday. The new owner is very engaged in the program and is on site everyday to listen to parents’ feedback. We now have an app to receive daily reports and pictures! The whole centre is very clean and organized. I feel great to leave my son at the centre knowing he is in great hands.” – R.C.
“I looked for a Montessori school in Oakville for my three-year-old son when I moved to the neighborhood from Toronto. I found Western Heights Montessori Academy through google and scheduled a tour. I immediately fell in love with the school – all the kids seemed to be happy, staff was very friendly, and French, Mandarin, Music and Yoga class every week! I especially loved the huge natural playground – I toured many Montessori schools in Oakville but I have to say their playground is unmatched!” – Cherry Z.
“My son has been attending Western Heights for more than a year now. He started at 15 months old in the Toddler class and he is now ready to move into the Casa Class at 2 1/2 years old. What a great experience for my son. This is a fabulous school! As a Teacher I have high expectations and Helen and her staff have met and exceeded these expectations. The children are engaged in rich, authentic and meaningful lessons and activities, with Ontario Curriculum connections. Lessons and activities are planned in collaboration with staff, students, and parents. The lessons/activities allow for individual creativity and achievement, through personalized tasks and assessments. I appreciate and value the open and regular communication with the director and the teachers to ensure my son reaches his full potential. There’s much collaboration and also valuable feedback provided to me on an ongoing basis. Through individualized reporting and assessment, and on going parent-teacher communication, my son is growing in all areas; and his skills and talents are nurtured. A bonus is the daily communication through a Smartphone app which includes pictures from the day. There are many special events that connect the community and make us parents feel so valued and included. The staff are experienced, professional, safe, creative, positive, organized, and most importantly have a great rapport with the students. They have structured routines and the kids enjoy up to two hours of outdoor playtime in their large private playground. Another big bonus is the organic/homemade healthy snacks and meals prepared on site for the kids; as well as language classes, music classes, and yoga, which enriches mind, body, and soul. Again, as a teacher I highly recommend Western Heights, and as a Parent I recommend it even more.” – Nitsa & Connor’s Mommy
“This Centre (former Little Lords and Ladies Children’s Centre) was a brilliant experience for my child. I can’t thank the staff enough for all the care they provided my son during his time at the centre. This is the best daycare in Oakville. The staff are experienced and always very pleasant.” – Mary J
