Testimonials / Comments from the Parents

Our daughter has been given the tools to successfully move on to the next step.

Being an educator for 25 years, I can safely say that although a high quality preschool education must tap into a child’s academic potential, and Broad View French Montessori does this very well, the most important aspect is to develop the child's self-confidence so they themselves can view advancement as a possibility rather than an obstacle. Broad View French Montessori, under the direction of Madame Christiane Gervais as well as the staff, have helped to make our 6 year old a confident and curious child who views school as a positive part of her day. Although “graduating” from this wonderful place is both a happy and sad occasion, we, as parents, know that our daughter has been given the tools to successfully move on to the next step.

We could not have chosen a better school for our daughter.

The staff is attentive and encouraged our daughter to become an independent life-learner. I can’t believe that she could do multiplication and division at the age of 5! She is also an impressive reader - in both French and English.

Broad View French Montessori offers a perfect balance between focused work and imaginative play, which in turn instills discipline and creativity in children. My daughter loved her teachers, and I know the teachers care deeply for their students.

There should be no hesitation whatsoever for any parent to send their child to Broad View French Montessori. Had the school offered an elementary school curriculum (i.e. Grade 1 and up), there is absolutely no question that our daughter would have continued to attend the school.

We sincerely admire Madame Christiane Gervais and her staff for carrying out such outstanding work, and we are genuinely grateful to have been able to give our daughter a superior education in the hands of such wonderful teachers.

Christine – Parent

It can be tough choosing care for young children.

My husband and I are very pleased to have found Broad View French Montessori School. Both of our daughters have attended the school from a very young age. With very different personalities, aptitudes and learning styles, both our girls have thrived in the Toddler and the CASA programs. They also have a good understanding of the French language. It's amazing to hear your 2 year old sing 'Oh Canada' from start to finish in French! Aside from these fundamentals, the structured environment offered by Mme Christiane and her staff teaches politeness, manners and positive interaction with other children. This school offers a caring environment and a structured learning program. We do not hesitate to recommend Broad View French Montessori to any parents looking for more than just care for their child.

To everyone at the Broad View French Montessori School.

Al, Kennedy and I would like to say thank you so much for a wonderful experience for Kennedy these past few months. She really enjoyed her time as a student and we are very sad to have our time come to an end. Everyone treated her with such kindness and care, exactly what a parent wants for their child. She made great friends and loves her teachers. Merci beaucoup.

I would highly recommend this school to other parents.

I am very pleased with the education that my son has been receiving at the Broad View French Montessori School. He has learned so much during his time there. He excels in the routine and structure that is offered. He comes home singing new songs or telling me about the activities or crafts that he did that day. He has taken many steps towards independence under the guidance of the staff. I was surprised to see him putting on his own mittens the other day and when asked who showed him that, he casually said "Les Madames". I also appreciate the manners that they are teaching him there, the handshakes, tidying up, keeping clean, etc.

During his time at Broad View French Montessori School, my son has made some very valuable friendships and bonded with his teachers. Christiane is very dedicated to the school and runs a smooth operation. I would highly recommend this school to other parents.

We are a very happy family with Broad View French Montessori.

Our child has been with Mme. Latifé at Broadview French Montessori for over 2 years. We are very happy with the school and with its director.

Physically the school offers an organized, clean, friendly, calm and safe environment. I couldn’t say well enough of Mme. Latifé as a director! She is passionate and dedicated about the work she so obviously loves. She is kind, organized, supportive of her pupils and engaged. She is available to discuss, troubleshoot and work out solutions (for example my child was affected when 4 friends all graduated to Jr. Kindergarten at the same time, leaving the school; as well a loss of a Grand Parent. Mme. Latifé and I had a meeting, implemented a plan and within a few days our child was happy again).

The program itself is excellent. It is school at its finest for our preschoolers – not simply just daycare. They learn a lot through singing, visual and aural learning, learning through activities and touch (for example the letters and numbers in a gritty textured surface, abacus etc.). It is different than traditional Montessori teachings in the way that there is more structure and a sense of adult guidance. Children need this support, respect and structure. As a fluently French and English speaking family we also appreciate the true international French that flows through the school. The teachers are all wonderful and bring to the school French language from around the world, which in turn influences a beautiful French in the children.

We are a very happy family with Broad View French Montessori and will miss them very much when our child graduates to Kindergarten.

Liane – Parent

We’re very happy with the progress our son has made in his 1 1/2 years there.

We couldn’t be more pleased with the wonderful learning environment our son experiences at Broad View French Montessori. Every day he runs into the classroom smiling and happy, eager to learn new things. Christiane and all the teachers provide a caring and supportive environment that he thrives in.

We love it when he comes home and is excited to show us what he has learned, including everything from singing his ABCs, to putting on his shoes and buttoning his shirt. The teachers have also helped him establish excellent manners and we smile every time he tucks in his chair after dinner, or puts away his toys. The structure and calm environment at the school fosters this polite and patient behaviour and we’re very happy with the progress our son has made in his 1 ½ years there.

We also appreciate the great friendships he has made while at the school, and the thoughtful and friendly atmosphere that we experience with the other parents and with Christiane and the teachers. We look forward to the rest of his time at Broad View French Montessori and all the fun and engaging experiences he will have there.

We have recommended Broad View French Montessori School to our friends and family.

We are very happy to recommend Broad View French Montessori School! The school is safe, clean, fun and educational, and most importantly to us, our kids like going to their school. We have recommended Broad View French Montessori School to our friends and family, many of whom have also enrolled their kids. This school has provided a means to give our kids the advantage of a second language from a very early age, in addition to the benefits that a Montessori education provides. We are very happy with this school.

Our children are thriving academically.

My wife and I currently have our 2 children enrolled at Broad View French Montessori school, a school we picked specifically to promote bi-lingual proficiency in our children and to challenge them with a hands-on curriculum that focuses on the fundamentals. Broad View French Montessori school has taught our children from an innovative approach that involves basic life skills as well as traditional academic skills centred around mathematics and written communication.

Due in no small part to Broad View French Montessori, our children are thriving academically as well as socially and value the friendships they are forming. The staff at Broad View French Montessori are warm and welcoming which helped our children transition from a more traditional day care setting to a richer academic environment. We remain pleased by their progress and continue to eagerly watch their academic and social development.

We have been very pleased with the Broad View French Montessori School.

We have had our spirited daughter at the Broad View French Montessori School for two years where she has greatly excelled. She is currently in the French only program and her French is improving weekly. She is learning geography, mathematics, and activties of daily living. We find the environment loving and disciplined at the same time which is ideal for our intelligent busy child.

We have felt so pleased with the school, we have recently enrolled our 18 month old in the daycare program. His caregivers are also very loving and excellent with children. We have been very pleased with the Broad View French Montessori School as the choice for a superb French education for our children and with the professionalism of Madame Christiane and will continue with both our children's education there until age 6.

Thank you Broad View French Montessori for all you have given my girls.

I looked for a safe place to send my first daughter to learn French in an environment of caring, cleanliness, and structure. I found Broad View French Montessori, that was 4 years ago, and in that time I have observed my daughter grow and mature. They taught her not only her ABC’s and 123’s, they taught her manners and independence. I have seen her grow into a wonderful little person.

I have nothing but the highest esteem for the teachers and Madame Christiane at Broad View French Montessori.

My second daughter started there at 18 months and by 2 and 1/2 she has learnt her ABC’s and can count to ten. She also sings “O Canada” in french. She loves school and as a parent I am overjoyed at their excitement to learn and go to school.

Thank you Broad View French Montessori for all you have given my girls. What an amazing place to start their lives in learning.

Joanne – Parent
