About us:

Welcome to the Canturberry Family. We are a non-profit organization looking to create, build and foster relationships within Edmonton communities. At Canturberry we offer a variety of Educational Programs that are affordable and accessible.

The more risks you allow your children to make, the better they learn to look after themselves. ~ Roald Dahl

Our Philosophy

We make learning fun!

In our classrooms, each child and their family is respected and valued. They are encouraged to respect and value each other, while gaining the skills needed to express themselves and communicate with others, think creatively, explore the world around them, and become life-long learners.

We believe that young children learn through playing and interacting with a diverse range of play and learning materials as well as children and adults.


Program Guide

Program Highlights

Our Education Programs offer students and their families a quality Montessori program, committed to Montessori best practice.

  • To honour the dignity of all children and trust in their innate desire to learn. Each child learns at their own pace with the teacher guiding and monitoring the learning environment.

  • To have learning occur in an inquisitive, cooperative and nurturing atmosphere, with students increasing their own knowledge through self and teacher initiated experiences.

  • To instill in students a respect for one-self, others, the environment and life, as necessary precursors to developing both their full potential, as well as a caring attitude towards all people and the planet.

  • In addition to our program we have added time for STEM. STEM is a way of thinking about how different topics are connected at all levels. This concepts allows children to integrate knowledge across disciplines, encouraging them to think in a more connected and holistic way

“Encouraging a child means that one or more of the following critical life messages are coming through, either by word or by action: I believe in you, I trust you, I know you can handle this, You are listened to, You are cared for, You are very important to me.” ~ Barbara Coloroso
