Community Montessori Children’s Centre (CMCC), provided by the Community Association of Montessori Parents (CAMP), is a non-profit Montessori Program that provides enriched Montessori learning for children ages 30 months to Kindergarten age.

 Our program provides:

  • Full Montessori curriculum
  • Montessori and ECE certified teachers
  • Introduction to French and Music
  • Five full time days per week 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

At CMCC, we provide children the foundation for lifelong learning. Our aim is to support each student so they can fulfill their potential, while developing independence, responsibility, self confidence and self esteem.

We are located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac in the heart of Cedar Cottage, in East Vancouver. Adjacent to our property is Tyee Montessori Elementary School, with its fabulous new playground and green space.

If teaching is to be effective with young children, it must assist them to advance on the way to independence. It must initiate them into those kinds of activities which they can perform themselves. We must help them to learn how to walk without assistance, to run, to go up and down the stairs, to pick up fallen objects, to dress and undress, to wash themselves, to express their needs in a way that is clearly understood, and to attempt to satisfy their desires through their own efforts. All this is part of an education for independence.”
