For 50 years, Kanata Montessori has been graduating students with self-confidence, critical thinking skills, respect, high academic achievement, and an international perspective. Come and see what a Kanata Montessori experience can do for your child.

External enrolment for the 2024-25 school year has an extremely limited number of spots. Most programs are full, with waiting lists.

Kanata Montessori enrolled and was accepted into the Canada-Wide Early Learning and Child Care (CWELCC) program for Toddler and Casa students. Parents of children enrolled in Toddler and/or Casa can expect to receive a refund for a portion of their fees. Parents who have added their name to the City of Ottawa central childcare registry waitlist are not automatically placed onto our internal waitlist.  If you are interested in applying for our Toddler to Grade 12 waitlist, please contact us directly at

Founded in 1974, Kanata Montessori is continually broadening the services it provides to meet the changing needs of its students and parents alike. In its early beginnings, KM offered robust Casa pre-school programming. After moving to Kanata South business park in the 1990’s, our programming was expanded to include grades 1 through 6. In 2008, the school completed a major expansion and now enjoys a full sized gymnasium that benefits all programs and provides the opportunity for many community activities. 


As of 2016, our school became a fully accredited high school offering students an Ontario Secondary School Diploma. Since then, our grade 12 graduates have achieved a 100% university application success rate. The school now encompasses three campuses in Kanata. At each level, whether a student is enrolled in Toddler, Casa, Junior Elementary, Senior Elementary, Junior High or Senior High, our educators and staff are dedicated to helping each child find their path.
