DELIVERING BOLD AND INSPIRING CURRICULUM FOR OVER 45 YEARS
Dearcroft offers Montessori programs from Toddler to Grade 8. Located on a magnificently wooded, historic estate in Old Oakville, Dearcroft is situated just steps from beautiful lakeside parks. Our school is accredited by CCMA (Canadian Council of Montessori Administrators) and is staffed by qualified, experienced and highly motivated teachers. With a low student-to-teacher ratio, our staff enjoys ideal conditions for helping our students to achieve their personal and academic goals. In close cooperation, all members of our school community recognize the strength of an outstanding team and are appreciative of the opportunity to work together in such a creative and exciting learning environment.
Operating for nearly 50 years, Dearcroft is also home to the West Wind Montessori Junior High program. West Wind is Canada’s award-winning leader in elementary experiential education. We offer outdoor education, including a rotation of winter trips to destinations such as Temagami, Algonquin Park and Ottawa/Quebec City. For over 15 years, our unique Expedition Education program has taken groups of our students coast-to-coast, exploring spectacular world heritage sites and national parks in Canadian locations as diverse as the Yukon and Newfoundland. As much a neighborhood school, as a school with a national vision.
