Our Mission

We provide exemplary, affordable Montessori education to Ottawa area families for children from 18 months through High School. We provide comparable opportunities whenever possible for Ottawa area Francophone families. We apply Montessori principles in such a way as to encourage engagement, continual learning, perseverance, independence, collaboration and joy. We embrace and support all former and current members of the OMS community in their contributions to our mission. We share our expertise, and our passion and belief in the power of Montessori principles, with the Montessori community and the larger world.

About OMS Montessori

OMS Montessori creates multi-age learning communities that support each student as a life-long learner. Assessing progress through daily observation and guiding each student through dynamic activity, OMS Montessori enables each student to develop fully as a confident, self-directed, responsible citizen of the world.

Established in 1966, OMS Montessori is a non-profit, charitable corporation accredited by the Canadian Council of Montessori Administrators (one of only three schools in Ottawa). We serve around 300 students from 18 months to grade 12, with Francophone and English programs. We were the first Montessori school in Ottawa and we continue to be an educational leader by creating and implementing education beyond the ordinary.
