Dearcroft Montessori Rebecca
(Satellite location)

Now celebrating over 55 years in operation, Dearcroft Montessori remains a long-standing pillar of Montessori education in Oakville. Today there is an increasing demand for high-quality Montessori education in the early years. In response we are pleased to announce that we are opening a satellite location in the South-Central part of Oakville. This school will be located in the Rebecca Street YMCA and will have Toddler and Casa programs for ages 18 months through to 6 years.

We are pleased to offer new families our exceptional Montessori educational programs, where the curriculum is tailored to meet the needs of each student. Our experienced staff take great pride in offering a warm and engaging environment for students. Founded in 1968, Dearcroft is Oakville’s original Montessori School.

Located within the Peter Gilgan Family YMCA of Oakville

Located within the Peter Gilgan Family YMCA of Oakville, our close-knit school community will offer bright and spacious naturally lit classrooms, with entrances to the playground from the classrooms. This space is designed for children to foster the development of gross-motor movement keeping in-line with Montessori best practices, all classrooms feature: multi-age environment, low student/teacher ratios, hands-on experiential learning, and individual and small group lessons.

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. We are committed to the students at our school and ensure that they feel happy and safe in an inclusive environment within a supportive matrix of care, encouragement, and challenge.

How We Differ:

Within classically structured and fully equipped Montessori classrooms, our students experience an exciting, well-balanced curriculum with a strong emphasis on a healthy lifestyle. Research confirms that activity throughout the day helps students to improve their academic skills, and this is just one of the many benefits we see by encouraging physical movement. Our hope is that students who leave Dearcroft Rebecca after Casa will enter Elementary with a strong understanding of healthy lifestyles, a desire to try new physical activities and a true love of being active. 

If you have not been able to visit our school at the YMCA, we welcome you to get acquainted with our new space and encourage you to come for a tour. Please feel free to contact our administrative team for further information.
