History of the Montessori School of Sudbury
The Montessori School of Sudbury was incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1978. Originally at St. Andrew’s Place, the school quickly outgrew these accommodations and moved to 158 John Street in 1981. The school remained at 158 John Street for 17 years until it once again required larger facilities. In the fall of 1998, it moved to 295 Victoria Street, formerly known as King George School. A volunteer Board of Directors comprised of parent and non-parent members, set policies and procedures that govern the school’s operations. The Association Montessori International (AMI) has recognized the Montessori School of Sudbury. This association maintains, propagates and furthers the ideas and principles of Dr. Maria Montessori for education and human development irrespective of racial, religious, political or social environment.
The Montessori School of Sudbury is registered under the Childcare and Early Years Act (CCEYA), licensed by the Ontario Ministry of Education and licensed as an Elementary Education Private School. The Montessori School of Sudbury owes much of its success to the original founders of the school, the ongoing enthusiasm and dedication of parent members, as well as Board members over the years who have devoted much of their time to developing and managing the growth of this school. Finally and most importantly, the dedication and long-term commitment of the teaching and administrative staff of the Montessori School of Sudbury have been critical to the ongoing growth and health of this organization.
