White Oaks Montessori School opened its doors in September 1989. At that time we consisted of one classroom at our Clarkson Campus – a morning class of 7 students. The dream was to provide children with exceptional education, while also giving them skills that they could use for the rest of their lives.

As each year went by, our student and teacher population grew and we opened more classrooms, created an afternoon class and a full day class, as well as an Extended Care Programme.

Next came a shared desire with the encouragement and support of parents to spread ourselves again and include an Elementary Programme. After several years in a very cramped Elementary room, we were delighted to acquire and renovate an old farmhouse. In September 1997, we relocated our Elementary Programme and a Casa classroom to the White House Campus.

In September 2000, we expanded again and opened our Vanier Campus. These premises were completely altered and renovated, as well as the playground area. Vanier now houses a Toddler Programme which started in March 2001, 4 Casa classes, a Lower Elementary (Gr. 1-3) and an Upper Elementary (Gr. 4-6). In addition, we have a Computer Lab/French Room, a Library and a Gymnasium.

In 2003 we expanded our Elementary Science Programme at our Vanier campus and added a Toddler classroom to our Clarkson campus. Our Vanier campus also hosts a March Break Camp in the Spring and a Summer Camp Programme during the summer months.

In 2001 White Oaks Montessori School received the first ACCREDITATION in Mississauga through the Canadian Council of Montessori Administrators. In 2006 we received our 2nd RE-ACCREDITATION. We are now entering our 24th year of serving the Mississauga and Oakville communities and one of four schools in Mississauga to be accredited with the CCMA. We are very proud to have achieved this recognition in Canada and are very grateful to our administrative staff and our talented teachers who take pride in their work, and in so doing, have made White Oaks Montessori School a distinctive name in the world of Montessori. In order to be accredited, a Montessori school must pass through a process of evaluation established by CCMA. This process takes approximately one year to complete and all criteria must be met by the school.

White Oaks Montessori School has a reputation for excellence with a strong established name in the Mississauga, Etobicoke and Oakville Communities.
