The CMS vision is to establish and maintain schools that strive for excellence by providing accessible quality Montessori education in growing communities. The schools’ aim is to prepare children to reach their full potential and to play a responsible role in protecting the global environment and fostering peace and harmony with natural processes and community interests. CMS endeavors to provide quality education in a safe, diverse, nurturing and creative environment that helps the development of the whole child. The environment emphasizes personal care and contact for both children and parents. Each campus provides the Montessori learning experience with the unique branded CMS style. The mission ensures that the child is academically motivated, artistically creative, physically active and emotionally supported. The CMS vision has been followed since the first campus opened in 1995. The successful approach has allowed expansion to five campuses conveniently located near major intersections of central North York and Thornhill in north Toronto.
