Montessori Borealis and its supporting society’s board of directors has offered a Montessori program since 1998 to the Whitehorse community. Montessori Borealis operates half-day and full-day programs during the school year with trained, experienced Montessori teachers, at least one of whom mainly communicates with the children in French. The Head Teacher is accredited through the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) Training Centre.  Our teaching assistants are all designated Child Care Worker Level 3 through Yukon Health and Social Services’ Child Care Services Unit and most have also been AMI-trained.

The Montessori teacher training provides a full year of rigorous academic training in child psychology, the Montessori method and philosophy. Our teachers are enthusiastic, flexible, caring and strongly grounded in Montessori philosophy to help your child get the most out of each day.
