Selkirk Montessori School is located on the traditional territories of the Lekwungen peoples, known today as the Esquimalt and Songhees Nations. We extend our appreciation for the opportunity to live and learn on this territory.
Our vision is to cultivate a life-long love of learning in our children and inspire them to realize their full potential while enjoying life’s journey and positively contributing to the world around them.
Guided by the Montessori philosophy, our mission is to provide a caring school community that nurtures every child's natural curiosity for learning and supports full development of academic, social, artistic, physical and life skills.
LEARNING - curiosity, creativity, critical thinking, passion, and independence
