A Message from Myriam Woods, Head of School

Welcome!  I am delighted by your interest in Fraser Woods Montessori School.  For over twenty years as Head of School it has been my passion and my privilege to lead and inspire through the educational principles of Maria Montessori.

All of us at  Fraser Woods Montessori School, faculty and administrators, believe that students learn best in an environment that nurtures their natural fascination with the world.  Our curriculum, methodology and materials engage students’ curiosity and allow discovery to be both intriguing and challenging.  In scientifically designed classrooms you will find materials created to meet children at their unique developmental levels.  Through structure and freedom, guidance and inspiration, our students blossom here.

The world is a big place and the best preparation we can give our students is to provide an emotionally safe environment where they feel comfortable to take risks—not only academically, but socially as well. Each child is recognized, understood and accepted by all of the members of the community.  This emotional freedom allows students to bloom and maximize their full potential.

Whether your child is entering school for the first time or you are considering a change from another school, I invite you to contact our Admissions Office and make an appointment to visit Fraser Woods.  Tour the campus, observe a classroom, meet with me and discover the amazing opportunities that await your child’s educational future.  I look forward to meeting you and your family.

Warm Regards,

Myriam Woods
