The Surrey School District will have three Montessori programs by next fall.

In addition existing programs at Mountainview and Sunnyside Elementary schools, a third location at Latimer Road Elementary is scheduled to open in September.

Montessori programs generally consist of multi-age classes and are intended to develop a global vision in students who are already self-directed. Students often stay with the same teacher for three years, working through individualized programs wherever possible. (For more information on the Montessori program, check https://www.surreyschools.ca/departments/edsc/choiceprograms/montessori/Pages/default.aspx).

An information meeting for parents is scheduled for Jan. 10 from 6:30-8 p.m. at the Surrey School District Education Centre, 14033 92 Ave.

Phone-in registration for Latimer Road Montessori, located at 19233 60 Ave., is on Jan. 14. Phone 604-595-6400, beginning at 5 p.m.
