For 13 years, Town Centre Montessori Private Schools acted as my second home. From the beginning of pre-school until the day I graduated from high school, Town Centre helped me achieve my goals at every level. The excellent teaching staff, encouraging environment, and the great friends I made along the way all contributed to my success. In addition, I was provided with many opportunities to involve myself within the school community through extra-curricular activities, including various sports teams, school band, drama club, and student government. My time spent at Town Centre taught me invaluable life skills, and provided an excellent education on which I will continue to grow and succeed in the future!
Every parent wants the best for their child. They want to give them the tools they need to succeed in the world, to be the best they can be, and to be happy. As parents of two boys, we wanted to give them the best start in life we could. As with many parents, education is high on the list of priorities.
When our first child was one, we set out to find the best possible education facility. When we saw all the wonderful things that Town Centre offered and we knew right away that this was the environment we wanted our child to grown and learn in. He started when he was two and all his teachers took great pride in providing an atmosphere of care just as if he was their own. As he got older the teachers showed him how to learn independently in various gentle ways. Each year he has spent at Town Centre has been a great experience for my son as well as us. All the staff at the school are so easy to approach and they are very understanding of the needs of the children and the parents. My son is now in grade eight and he feels that Town Centre has taught him to be ready to face all the new challenges in his next stage of life and learning. He will be moving on the high school but he will always have the gift of knowledge that all the staff and teachers have given him.
Our second child is following closely in his footsteps and is now in grade five at Town Centre. He has shown such growth in his abilities. We are looking forward to the next few years. My husband and I feel we have definitely given both our children the best start in the very important developmental years of their life.
My daughter has been at TCPS for 3 years and I couldn’t be happier! As an educator and health and well being advocate for children, choosing a school for my own child was not a difficult one. TCPS has an outstanding reputation in the Markham and surrounding areas. When I would see happy, healthy children who were polite, well mannered, surpassing milestones and excited about their school and learning…I often heard “I go to Town Centre!”.
My daughter has enjoyed her time at TCPS from the first day we went to their open house, just after she had turned two. She is full of energy going to school, and when coming home, she is excited to share how her day went with her teachers and friends. She takes great pride in her schoolwork, bringing home academic or artwork daily! As a polite, giggly, happy child, she enjoys chatting with teachers, vice-principals and office staff, as much as other students!
The after-school activities have helped her in many ways, developing her motor skills with Sports with Jay, balance skills with Ballet, coordination skills with Zumba and relaxation techniques with Yoga.
My husband and I are so happy that our school has become our home! More than that, I’d like to thank Town Centre for helping me foster a love of learning in my child! It’s one of the biggest gifts we can give our children. Proud to be a TCPS parent!
