About Us

Our Mission

Dearcroft Montessori School’s mission is to provide our students with the opportunity to develop and nurture their individual academic and social strengths in a safe and motivational learning environment.

Within classically structured and fully equipped Montessori classrooms, immersed in a naturally inspired setting, our students experience an exciting, well balanced curriculum.

At two years of age, we notice a sudden explosion into words; this explosion comes from the hidden work of the child. There has been a hidden, important, and complex preparation of language before this expression becomes manifest.

Established in 1968, Dearcroft is Oakville’s original Montessori school and the first in our community to offer a comprehensive Junior High (Grade 7/8) program since 1999. Now approaching our 55th Anniversary, we are thrilled to announce that Dearcroft is growing with our community. We are excited to announce a second location opening September 2022 in North Oakville. Dearcroft is a fully accredited charter member of CCMA (Canadian Council of Montessori Administrators) and O.I.S. (Oakville Independent Schools).
