"Our aim is not only to make the child understand, and still less to force him to memorize, but so to touch his imagination as to enthuse him to his innermost core. We do not want complacent pupils, but eager ones. We seek to sow life in the child, rather than theories, to help him in his growth - mental and emotional, as well as physical - and for that we must offer grand and lofty ideas to the human mind."
Dr. Maria Montessori
TFMS accepts students from 18 months to 5 years of age. We offer half-day and full-day programs for both the Pre-Casa and Casa class at our Stouffville Campus. Students under six years of age and with no previous exposure to the French language are welcome to join the program.
Students aged 4 Years old to Grade 8 attend our Thornhill Campus. Class sizes are small, with a low student to teacher ratio, which allows for a learning environment that is nurturing and supportive, thus giving every student his or her opportunity to achieve academic excellence and personal success.
As a private bilingual (French & English as a first language & Spanish as a second language) co-educational Montessori school, Toronto French Montessori School offers the best in quality education and a nurturing family environment for your child.
Dr. Montessori strongly believed that the road to peace would be paved by our children. She felt that if a child's needs were met and they were expected to give and receive respect in a community such as their classroom or school, that respect would be carried forward with them into adulthood.
Our Open Houses are a great chance to see our facilities while meeting students, faculty and members of our administration team. Parents are strongly encouraged to attend to obtain answers to all of your questions.

TFMS has authentic Montessori classrooms under the direction of fully qualified Montessori teachers.
Montessori education emphasizes and develops the potential of each child through the utilization of special teaching materials, a prepared environment, and teachers with a solid understanding of the philosophy, who have been trained in the use of Montessori materials.
Our education is imbued with moral lessons derived from Christianity that are no longer being taught in other school systems. This, along with our bilingual program and low student to teacher ratio, has led TFMS to become the school of choice for an increasing number of families. • See the Principal's Message
