Our Mission

It is a privilege to help educate and nurture each child who comes through our doors. We embody a community, providing a safe environment in which curiosity, ambition, and growth flourish. We nurture ‘the whole child’ to help them grow into happy, well-rounded people.

Our Mission

The fundamental principle governing Trafalgar Ridge Montessori School’s approach to learning is that the whole child (intellectual, emotional, physical, and social) must be the focal point of our activities so that each student can develop at their own pace. It is our goal to direct each child achieve their personal best in all areas of development. Our obligation is always first and foremost to the child.

TRMS offers a non-denominational multicultural environment for children to learn, grow, develop and thrive.

A Message from Our Director

As the School Director I am privileged to lead a dedicated and passionate group of educators who truly adore teaching children! Most of our Teaching Team has been at TRMS long-term. We work collaboratively in a supportive environment.

We are proud that we’ve been Providing Quality Education in a Nurturing Environment for over 25 years. It is a joy to have built special long-term relationships with our graduates and their families.

Choosing a school, that is most appropriate to the needs of your child, is a major decision for parents. Many questions arise but the most important is whether the school’s educational and social philosophy meets the parent’s own expectations and standards. If you are seeking a school that is an extension of home where diversity is embraced and every child is treated as a unique individual, TRMS is the place for you!

Trafalgar Ridge’s philosophy is based on the principle that education involves the development of self-motivated, responsible, and self-disciplined children. From a very young age we introduce children – through purposeful activities – to independent learning and self-initiative, enabling them to achieve their highest potential. Children nurture their self-esteem and skills that are vital to being a fully functioning member of society are developed.

Our students work independently and collaboratively, learning to respect the needs of others as well as their own. A love of nature and a deep sense of responsibility for others and their environment are fostered. We also take pride in offering a culturally diverse environment where children of all backgrounds can thrive. We teach children to take pride in their heritage and to embrace and respect the beliefs of others. We take children around the world in their learning experience by exploring the people, cultures, and animals of our wonderful planet! All this is achieved ensuring that the child is safe, has fun, and develops meaningful relationships.

A child’s school should be an extension of their family life, providing a safe environment in which they can explore ideas and feelings. At TRMS, we fully embrace the African proverb “it takes a village to raise a child.” The TRMS teaching team and parents work cooperatively to provide children with a well-rounded support system and community that nurtures learning and growth.

We would be happy to have you and your child(ren) join the TRMS school community!

Optimistically,
Madame Sandrine Lescure
School Director
