Broad View French Montessori School I Ltd was established in August 2003 and the second school bearing the reputable name followed the year after. BVFMS I Ltd is situated in the East York community, as BVFMS II Ltd is in the heart of the Upper Beaches area.
BVFMS is a small school based entirely on the educational philosophy methods of Dr. Maria Montessori, following the instruction and training of children to enable them to develop their individual ability and reach their maximum potential, at their own rhythm.
BVFMS has created a wonderful and calm environment, nurturing children and helping their natural learning process, in which children feel safe and loved. The educational environment fosters respect, cooperation, order, choice within limits and provides children with the opportunity to attain their full potential. The school’s peaceful setting promotes strong moral values.
At each stage of his/her development, a child acquires the tools necessary for critical thinking, decision-making and respect for his/her environment. With the guidance of a Montessori teacher, the child chooses what helps him/her to construct him/herself, which results in a love of life and learning, promoting independence, self-esteem and growth.
BVFMS offers a program exclusively in French from toddlers to 6 years-old. Children from anglophone families are also welcome. The ratio for the toddlers program is 5 to 1 and for the Casa program 8 to 1.
