Island Montessori Academy Limited is a dedicated Private Educational Facility. IMA offers an excellent early childhood educational alternative to the Charlottetown area. We have three campuses: Charlottetown, Stratford and Cornwall.
Our school allows each child an opportunity to grow and develop at his/her own pace. We promote independence and self-respect through guidance and nurturing. We provide instruction and individual lessons using Montessori material as set forth by Dr. Maria Montessori (1870-1952).
IMA’s focus is on building the child’s academic, emotional and social foundations. Our program fosters early reading and writing through the use of phonetics, creative writing and poetry. A heavy emphasis is placed on an early introduction to language, art, arithmetic and sciences. In addition, IMA offers exposure to French, music and physical education.
Our curriculum emphasizes problem solving, personal development, and respect for oneself and others in a nurturing, caring environment. This is done during the most significant cognitive developmental years of a child’s life. Montessori, through a child’s eyes, asks the adult to “help me to help myself.”
