Our goal is to give the student a chance to explore the environment at his or her own pace and to encourage the child to become independent, improving self-confidence and self-esteem, while developing their social, intellectual, and academic skills.

"Scientific observation has established that education is not what the teacher gives; education is a natural process spontaneously carried out by the human individual, and is acquired not by listening to words but by experiences upon the environment.  The task of the teacher becomes that of preparing a series of motives of cultural activity, spread over a specially prepared environment, and then refraining from obtrusive interference.  Human teachers can only help the great work that is being done, as servants help the master.  Doing so, they will be witnesses to the unfolding of the human soul and to the rising of a New Man who will not be a victim of events, but will have the clarity of vision to direct and shape the future of human society."  - Dr. Maria Montessori, Education for a New World

School closures due to bad weather generally occur only during the winter season.  Should there be a major storm, please call the school at (204) 832-0866.  A recorded message will indicate whether classes have been cancelled or not.  Your child's teacher will also contact you to advise of any cancellations.

Annual Fundraiser
Paradise Montessori Preschool is an independent, private organization.  Our revenue is generated from tuition fees and donations.  As such, fundraising is a very important part of our school and we hold one major fundraiser during the Winter Holiday Season.  We appreciate the support of the families of the school.

Information about classroom activities, special events, meetings, etc. is communicated via a class note and postings on the bulletin boards.  All announcements will be placed in your child's cubbie.  Please be sure to check it regularly as this is our primary means of keeping you advised of relevant events and special notices.  School calendars are forwarded each month.

In the event of an accident or sudden onset of illness, the Paradise Montessori Preschool will seek proper care for your child.  Individual emergency instructions on file in our office are consulted and the parents are contacted immediately.  To ensure prompt medical treatment is received, should it be necessary to transport your child to the nearest hospital, the Consent Statement, signed at the time of acceptance into Paradise Montessori Preschool, will accompany the student.  It is imperative that you keep the emergency contact information up to date at all times.
