Saskatoon Public Schools began offering an elementary Montessori program at City Park School in September 2016. We look forward to the expansion of this program in 2017-18.
Saskatoon Public Schools’ Montessori Elementary Program is offered to students in Grades 1 to 8. Montessori philosophy and methodology is used to deliver Saskatchewan curricula. Based on the educational ideals of Maria Montessori of following the child, learning is individualized and presented to match the stages of development of children.
During a daily independent work cycle (2.5+ hours), students may choose from prepared Montessori materials to work at their individual pace. Freedom within limits allows for each child to set goals and develop the independence and self-regulation to achieve. The teacher assumes the role of educational guide, offering individual, small group and large group presentations as needed by the students. The multi-year learning cycle allows all children in the class to work at varying levels, on various topics of interest at any grade level within the cycle. All students work in multi-aged classrooms.
There is no tuition for students attending the school division program.
The Montessori Program is open to students with or without prior Montessori experience. Previous Montessori experience is an asset at the upper elementary and middle years levels. Families interested in the Montessori program are asked to attend an information meeting in March. To register your child(ren) for the SPS Montessori Program at City Park School , please proceed to the Registration page.
