  2. Between 2010 and 2019, the number of licensed childcare spaces grew 75%^*; AVM Schools are contributing to this growth by meeting demand. 
  3. The Ontario government’s introduction of CARE tax credit in 2019-20 is expected to result in a rise in the total number of families using child care+ 
  4. Historically, the employment rate for women with children under the age of six has increased over time.~ 
  5. Canadian parents no longer want childcare alone, they want an excellent foundation for early learning combined with physical activity and free play.
  6. Investing in your future also means helping to nurture and shape future generations

WHY MONTESSORI?

Our program is based on the work of Dr. Maria Montessori who helped to change the course of education through her research and studies. Montessori education concentrates on the child’s experience, characterized by a focus on self-directed activity, where the teacher’s role is to encourage, observe and guide students. In Montessori education, the environment is adapted to the child and their development. Many successful business and political leaders were Montessori-educated. Parents want this learning experience for their children.

WHY ANGUS VALLEY MONTESSORI SCHOOLS?
