About Shawnigan Lake Montessori

At Shawnigan Lake Montessori Preschool and Childcare our focus is to provide a caring and respectful educational experience for every child. Our program is committed to the Montessori curriculum and our classroom is a prepared environment equipped with certified Montessori materials with which the children may explore, be creative, build independence and gain a strong sense of self. Each child is seen as a unique individual who requires freedom to develop every aspect of his or her personality, naturally and without pressure. With respectful love and care, the child is guided towards independence and self-control by means of activity in a peaceful, calm and orderly environment.


Shawnigan Lake Montessori  Preschool and Childcare, which has been in operation since 2007, is situated within the large grounds of Shawnigan Lake School, just outside of Shawnigan Lake Village.  The Preschool’s two classrooms are located in a beautiful two storey house with large gardens which back onto a forest.  This provides opportunities for nature play, gardening and forest walks.  We offer a full Montessori program for children from 2 ½ years to 6 years, and include a kindergarten program.  Our staff have credentials which meet provincial standards, as well as Montessori training and are experienced and enthusiastic about providing an enriched early years Montessori curriculum.  We offer three, four and five day options, with either a full day or half day program.
