Coquitlam Montessori Society
“One test of the correctness of educational procedure is the happiness of the child.”
The Montessori philosophy places an emphasis on individual student choice in learning and a balance between whole class lessons and individual lessons.
You won’t find the customary rows of school desks; children work at tables or on the floor, rolling out mats
Younger children learn from older children; older children reinforce their learning by teaching concepts they mastered.
The Montessori teacher prepares a classroom environment with materials and activities that entice her students to learn.
Students work with specially designed materials, manipulating and investigating until they master the lesson inside.
We have at least one parent representative in each school to act as liaison between the school and the CMS.
Members address each other respectfully and in modulated tones. There are no raised voices; no rude or hurtful behaviour.
We are BC`s Largest Montessori Society
