Fraser Woods Montessori School

We cultivate compassion, confidence, and joy of learning

At Fraser Woods Montessori (FWM), you will find a faculty and staff that model our mission statement of cultivating compassion, confidence and joy of learning. Our students arrive each day excited for, and curious about, what lies ahead. After a day of intentional learning in the classrooms (both indoor and outdoor), engaging in art, makerspace and fabrications lab, music, Spanis, and physical education, they love to go home and share what they did that day with their parents. We partner with our families to help them raise children who feel safe, confident, and look to pursue passions developed during their time at FWM.

“Since starting the Toddler class at FWM we have watched our son blossom; he has found a deeper sense of independence and we are regularly in awe of how the teachers are able to tap into his capabilities and foster them, making him confident in what he is doing.  We are also blown away with the sense of community we feel there – “community” is not a buzz word that is used lightly at FWM, it is a philosophy embedded in everything they do and is palpable to the students and the parents.”

“The teachers and staff at Fraser Woods are not only kind and welcoming but incredibly talented and qualified. This year is my daughter’s (3yo) first experience in a classroom and she is already blossoming in and out of school while also making friends, building her confidence, and of course learning. The curriculum offered is incomparable as is the security. We couldn’t be happier here.”
