Welcome to Kanata Montessori.


From 18 months to 18 years, we aren’t just preparing students for university; we are preparing them for life.

Six core values permeate our school:


  • Personalized Learning

  • Freedom With Responsibility

  • Strong Sense Of Community

  • Improving The World

  • High Academic Standards

  • Environmental Stewardship and Sustainability

What if...

  • There was a school where children could be welcomed as toddlers, be inspired through their formative years and graduate into their futures? 

  • There was a school focused on high academic standards, and increased student engagement?

  • There was a school grounded in the Montessori philosophy with 21st century learning spaces fuelling innovation, teamwork and critical thinking?

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.
