“We are the sowers – our children are those who reap. We labour so that future generations will be better and nobler than we are.”

So what do our parents have to say about Forestville Montessori School? You’ll find lots of information in our website but if you like to read the numbers here are some remarkable statistics taken from our parent survey:

Agreed that FMS prepares children for lifelong learning.

Agreed that FMS provides sound teaching of the basics.

Agreed that the Montessori materials are beautifully presented.

Agreed that the classroom
environments are welcoming.

Agreed that their children are in a well-rounded learning environment.

Numbers speak one language. Our school speaks many languages that all focus on exemplary education but the language we like to hear most are the words from our children:

“I love my school!”

We can’t wait to welcome you and your family to experience first-hand the special magic of Forestville Montessori School.
