Our Information


We believe children learn by building on the knowledge they already have – primarily exhibited through play. Teachers help children learn by creating a rich environment to explore via exciting educational activities.

  1. Image of the child

    Teachers can then shape and build on that knowledge by discovering what children already know through observation, one-on-one conversation, clarification, and invitation to explore the world around them.

  2. Positive Discipline

    Spanking or other methods of corporal punishment are never to be used as a means of disciplining students. This no spanking policy extends to parents with their own children while at school or school sponsored events.

  3. Environment is important

    We like to work and play in attractive surroundings so our buildings are clean, relatively tidy, and pleasing to the eye. The outdoor environments are large, have colourful and interesting gardens, and a variety of activities.

    “Thank you doesn’t seem enough for all you’ve done for our son and his journey. Because of you all, he loves to read, write, explore, teach and lead. I have no doubt that we have given him the best start possible. We know that he will think of the entire HFM family fondly”.

    Rachel And Mike Class Of 2015-2017

    “Great staff – positive, caring and friendly. HFM teachers are very interactive and engaged with the students. My son was always excited to go to school. Great daily routines. It might have been helpful to receive some sort of daily report for the pre-schoolers: sleep time, eating, toileting. But it was always easy to ask teachers at the end of the day. You could ask any teacher, and they would all be able to tell you about your child. An excellent program over all”.

    Kara And James- Class Of 2014-16

    “Headon Forest Montessori is a clean, well-managed and engaging environment that provides the tools/necessities required for learning. The teachers are committed to the needs of the children and are genuinely passionate about their role with the kids. We have been very happy with the curriculum, dietary program, health accommodations (our son has an allergy), summer program, learning tools, hours of operation, communication to parents and obvious concern for the children in their care. We strongly recommend Headon Forest Montessori”.
