Over the past year that my daughter Isabelle has been at Montessori Minds I have been amazed on a daily basis at the skills she has learned and the joy of discovery that she has developed. I have been so proud to see her grow and become her own person thanks to the care and guidance provided by Shazmina and her staff. We are counting the days until our son is old enough to join the Montessori Mind crew so that he can have the same wonderful experiences that his big sister has every day!

Our experience at Montessori Minds has been nothing short of excellent. Both academically and socially our son has learned more than we imagined possible. The school is kept exceptionally clean, neat and organized. Safety is always taken seriously and I feel confident leaving my child at the school with the staff. It has always been a pleasure interacting with all the staff and our son has genuinely enjoyed his time at school. He has never been left bored or idle but always encouraged, challenged and taught to his full potential. The students have a great selection of activities that keep them learning in a warm, fun and friendly environment. I am genuinely impressed with the emphasis placed on good nutrition and good health. The children are encouraged to eat well and given healthy, nutritious snacks every day. Playtime has always been great as children are taught to play together and solve problems independently in a positive way. The toys at the school are interesting and fun. Toy guns, war figurines and all toys that can be used in a violent way are kept away from the children. We simply have no negative thoughts to take away with us. If we had the opportunity to go back and do everything again, we would happily start again at Montessori Minds. I cannot recommend Montessori Minds, Shazmina and her staff highly enough.

We/Mya miss you all so much.  Your kindness that you share with all the kids.  And how much you care for these kids.  You are like a “MOM” in the truest sense of the word!!!  I would recommend you to anyone and everyone (which if I had all my friends and their family here, I would do so).

Thank you again for caring so much for Mya. Much love,

Hello to fellow parents,

My spouse and I had a hard time with Day Cares. when Montessior Minds opened in our Neighbourhood we thought we would try it. I wished, I would have had my daughter in a Montessior School earlier. She was happy and learning on her own pace. The care she received from The Teachers was fantastic just like family. I went to work worry free knowing my daughter would be safe and educated was a dream come true.

Thanks to Shazmina and her Teachers

My kids went to Montessori Minds since they were both 2.5yrs old. and it has been nothing short of amazing. their time there has been wonderful and it helped shape their characters to be confident, independent and respectful. It is the best start i could have given them to prepare them to what lies ahead. The staff there have been wonderful, patient and sincerely caring.

We are sincerely thankful to staff and for being kind and loving to our kids.  We will miss you but definitely be back to visit.



My son, registered at Montessori Minds in November 2016, and the teachers immediately started to work with Jason in getting him adjusted to a new environment. Shaz and her teachers take great care of each and every student and quickly developed a strong relationship with him. I was able to go to work everyday knowing Jason is in good care. I could notice improvement in Jasons fine motor skills and life skills within a month. moreover, Jason was able to achieve so much academically within the school year. he is currently attending an Elementary school and before/after schoolcare but still talks about his OLD SCHOOL and how much he misses his friends and teachers.

My husband and I are very happy with the choice we made in enrolling him with Montessori Minds and would highly recommend Montessori Minds to other parents looking for a daycare/preschool.

The teachers are so nice to all the kids. they have a pandemic policy in place , flexible on drop off and pick up times, lots of hands-on activities crafts and learning.
I highly recommend Montessori Minds, take care and thanks again for this past year.
