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.
Being a member of the Selkirk Montessori community ROCKS! Our interactions, behaviours, and problem-solving centre around the following:
R - Respect: seek to understand each other, take care of our environment, and work to create a positive environment
O - Open Mindedness: celebrate diversity, try new things, be flexible thinkers, approach collaboration with curiosity
C - Communication: actively listen, thoughtfully speak, honour and express our own feeling and ideas, acknowledge and consider the feelings and ideas of others
K - Kindness: help and inspire others, include everyone, use compassion, solve problems, take great care with our community
S - Success: challenge ourselves and preserve when obstacles arise, make a difference in our community, work together to accomplish big things, participate in service work, be true to ourselves (personal integrity)
