Who We Are
Creative Kids Montessori & Fine Arts Academy is designed for children from toddler through kindergarten school age. We strive for the fullest possible development of each child according to the philosophy developed by Dr. Maria Montessori. Using the specially prepared environment and scientifically designed material, we nurture the physical, intellectual, social and emotional growth of each child. Our purpose is to help each child develop a foundation of habits, attitudes, skills, appreciations and ideas necessary for a lifetime of creative learning
The arts curriculum provides for a wide range of activities which enable the child to develop ideas through imagery, thus providing a necessary balance to the wider curriculum. Learning in and through art can contribute positively to children's sense of personal and cultural identity and to their whole development.
"My son loves going to school at Creative Kids because he feels safe and valued by his teachers and because he is provided with so many opportunities to learn through work & play, develop new skills that help to foster a sense of independence and to learn new information about the world around him. The teachers at Creative Kids Montessori provide wonderful care to the children and they carefully plan a program that is meaningful, engaging and fun. They do this while honouring the children's’ innate sense of curiosity and desire to learn."

"As a parent of 2 1/2 and 4 year olds enrolled at Creative Kids Montessori, it is with great confidence that I recommend this school. If you are in search of a nurturing, educational and well-rounded child-care program, look no further. Teamed with experienced and caring teachers, my children receive the best in Montessori education.

"Our daughter absolutely loves Creative Kids. She has blossomed in so many ways since going there- socially, emotionally, intellectually and physically. She adores the teachers who are so kind, caring and attentive. The center provides a wonderful physical environment for both indoor and outside activities. The educational program stimulates and challenges the kids. We gladly recommend this program."

"My son went to Creative Kids Montessori for 2 years when he was 3 and 4 years old. I looked high and low in Vancouver for a full-day preschool childcare program that was small, licensed, and offered educational, art, play and outdoor activities... all in a nurturing, semi-structured environment. Creative Kids was exactly what I was looking for. The program incorporates it all - physical activity, learning and play! My very-active son flourished both socially and academically. He's now in grade 1 and the top reader of his class - and he still talks about how he misses his old school!"
