Eagle Harbour Montessori School provides students from Kindergarten to Grade 5 with a publicly funded alternative to standard education. The program emphasizes independence, freedom within limits, and respect for a child’s natural psychological development. The school delivers the British Columbia Ministry of Education curriculum using the approach developed by Italian physician and educator Maria Montessori. With more than 100 years of history and approximately 20,000 schools worldwide, the effectiveness of the Montessori philosophy is well established, internationally recognized and held in high regard.
At Eagle Harbour Montessori School, our dedicated and caring staff are passionate about providing a 21st century Montessori education focusing on character development and promoting the virtues of respect, grace and courtesy. Nestled in the park-like setting of West Vancouver’s Eagle Harbour neighbourhood, Eagle Harbour Montessori School is within close walking distance of a forested public park, salmon-filled stream, beach and marina.
Previously a popular recreation centre, our well-maintained facility boasts newly renovated classrooms, fully stocked with Montessori materials, a full-size gymnasium, a library offering ample student and teacher resources, a centralized computer lab offering use of laptop computers and iPads, and an oversized sports field with playground facilities and student garden.
With Strong Start BC early learning facilities, a Montessori preschool, and before and after school care available onsite, Eagle Harbour Montessori School is the ideal campus for families desiring discovery-based learning.
