About Island Montessori Academy

With three educational campuses, Island Montessori Academy’s (IMA) mission is to provide excellence in early childhood education to prepare your child for their future enrolment in the Prince Edward Island school system. We do this by providing our students with an exceptional learning environment that encourages natural curiosity, creative problem solving, and building confidence in our students’ natural abilities. We see ourselves as partners with parents on the meaningful learning journey of their children. We focus on the fundamental curriculum of Doctor Maria Montessori which includes Early Reading and Writing through the use of phonetics, Creative Writing and Poetry, as well as an emphasis on the Introduction to Language, Art, Arithmetic and Sciences. In addition, Island Montessori Academy offers exposure to French, Mandarin, Dance, Music and Physical Education.

“Having started Island Montessori in 2002, I’m so proud that our teams have continually focused on helping each child reach full potential in all areas of life and at their own pace, and that so many families have supported us by trusting their children with us during their important early years.”
