- Customized learning plan: At Western Heights Montessori Academy, each child is unique and special. Following the key principles of the Montessori program, we carefully evaluate each child’s learning needs and develop a customized plan to achieve enhanced learning. We don’t apply a ‘cookie-cutter’ approach; each child is learning at his or her own pace.
- Seamless parent teacher communication: At Western Heights Montessori Academy, we understand you want to be a part of your child’s learning journey. Our technology-enabled parent-teacher communication tools make it incredibly easy to receive updates and provide feedback throughout the semester. In addition to twice-a-year parent teacher interviews, you will receive regular reports about your child and can adjust the learning plan in close collaboration with our teachers.
- Enriched French, Mandarin and Music classes: French, Mandarin and Music classes are offered beginning at Toddler age at Western Heights Montessori Academy. We believe language and music are necessary tools to stimulate children’s brain development; we leverage these tools early-on to ensure your child get the most out of our program.

We deliberately choose to manage our student numbers to ensure we can maintain the one-on-one attention required for each student enrolled.

Each student is unique and special at Western Heights, and is a part of an extended, close-knit family.
- Freshly-made-on-site meal and snacks: Nutrition is key to healthy physical development, especially early on. We design our lunch and snack menu with your child’s developmental needs in mind. Our menu ensures the food we serve is not only nutritious, but also delicious that children love to eat! Prepared fresh on-site daily, our food can cater to meet many dietary and allergy requirements. Organic foods are used as common ingredients in our menu. We are committed to serve only Organic Milk to our students.
- Extended operating hours: We understand the competing priorities that comes from working and taking care of your child. As a result, we decided to provide families with our extended operating hours from 7:00am to 6pm. We hope it will provide you with added flexibility in your busy schedules for pick-up and drop-off.
- Private, spacious and fun-filled playground: Featuring fun play structures, open spaces and green-filled view, our playgrounds are beyond compare within the communities we serve. Children have lots of fun playing outdoors and form their love of nature through experiencing nature everyday on our playground.
