Welcome to the
NWT Montessori Society

For over 40 years we have operated
the Yellowknife Montessori School

Using the Montessori Philosophy and Method of Education, it is the goal of the NWT Montessori Society to instill in each child a sound academic foundation, self-worth, and respect for others, a love of learning, a sense of order and discipline, an appreciation of nature, and a strong sense of responsibility to the community.

The NWT Montessori Society strives to provide a continuum of programs, from toddler through upper elementary, that affirms the uniqueness and value of a Montessori education and cultivate a life-long love of learning.
