Victoria Education Centre is proud to present a blended philosophy of the Ontario's Padegogy for the Early Years Act and the Montessori methods, which includes an updated touch of the Ontario School Board expectations. Our children are being provided with a versatile opportunity to learn and explore with hands-on experiences. With our low teacher to student ratio (1:10) we are able to provide individual planning and attention with a very enriched program.
Our Kindergarten program is designed with the intention of readily merging children into any educational system. Also, we strive to promote a secure stimulating environment that supports the child’s self-confidence, and facilitates building a positive self-image. In addition, our biggest goal is to establish a very strong foundation for the child’s social-emotional, intellectual, and physical development.
