A School In Your Community
Pathways is what school should be: a positive and friendly learning environment where students are excited to learn, and where open communication, engaging teachers, bright classrooms, and a differentiated curriculum encourage students to thrive.
A child’s school should be an extension of their family, providing a safe environment in which they can explore ideas and feelings. It is our aim to direct each child to achieve their personal best by allowing them to develop at their own pace.
The child’s exploration of cultural subjects that consist of science, geography and history, help to satisfy a child’s natural curiosity of the world. These experiences are enhanced through experiments, literature, field trips and films.
These exercises allow the child to practice every day life tasks to provide a foundation for the development of independence, self-confidence, motor perception, perfection of movement and power of concentration.
These concrete materials educate the senses and allow the child to understand what he/she perceives. When the hand is busy, it will assist the child in learning.
Using concrete materials, the children learn to sensorially manipulate basic mathematical concepts. Materials are systematically used to build upon concepts from basic concrete materials.

Our aim is expressed in our school motto “Help me believe that I can”. Pathways Academy and Early Learning Centre provide a positive learning environment that will enhance our students’ level of development focusing on their self-confidence, independence, and decision-making capabilities.
Pathways allows for the freedom and support to question, to probe deeply, and to make connections. Our students become confident, enthusiastic and self-directed learners. They are able to think critically and work collaboratively, skill sets necessary for success in the 21st century.
“Our son went to Pathways for 4 years. The staff was amazing with him and he was well cared for. Academically he is beyond his years. He gained exposure to and learned about a variety of cultures and ethnic backgrounds which benefitted his social growth. They have a 30 min grace period before and after programming which makes pickup/drop-off a bit less stressful for working parents. I would highly recommend Pathways for young children.”
“We are so happy with our decision to send our children to Pathways Academy. The high level of academic achievement that is so common in Montessori schools is a draw for many parents. Couple that with the nurturing and supportive environment that Michelle and the wonderful teachers and staff have created, the children positively thrive.”
“We sent both our children to Pathways and saw them thrive in academic and personal growth. They always felt loved, cared for and supported by the loving staff which allowed both our children to grow a strong love for learning that will carry forward throughout their lives. We will always be thankful for the positive impact Pathways Academy had on our children.”
