Observing your children in their environments, at every level, come back from their summer break – ready to work, full of curiosity and engagement, laughing, playing and learning has been so humbling.

In the Montessori community, we pride ourselves on being, and are widely considered to be, leaders in high fidelity Montessori education.  Like most that strive for excellence, we are less interested in what we are doing well, but instead, constantly asking what could we do better. So over the last five years we implemented: more meaningful learning resource, better parent partnerships, true French immersion for our younger students,  a focus on great work for our elementary students, and literally hundreds of smaller initiatives.

Watching the incredible sense of calm and purpose in all of our classes, it feels like all of our thoughts, conversations, observations,  – indeed all of our efforts – have been rewarded.  As always thanks to all the parents and families for their faith and support.

  • Upper adventures
  • Dismissal reminder
  • Parking Lot
  • Boomerang lunch update and thank you

Back to Work

Welcome back to DVMS. We hope everyone had a wonderful summer.

It has been a wonderful first week of preparation.  The commitment to excellence that our staff community strives toward lifts us all up.

Welcome to your first Events and Information post for the 2018.2019 school year. Every Friday, at dvms.ca, we post any upcoming events and important information you need to know for the coming week(s). There will always be a link to the most recent “Events and Info” on the home page of the school website, and you can find all “Events and Info” posts under the “Parents” tab. We also send you the contents of the post via email (likely how you are reading this right now). The email does not contain all of the features and updates of the web post, so be sure to check the website.

All of the events are also posted on the calendar at dvms.ca.

On to what’s happening:
