The Canadian Council of Montessori Administrators (CCMA)
The Clover School is a fully accredited CCMA school, meeting and exceeding the high standards of excellence in Montessori education across all program and age levels.
As the Montessori name is in the public domain, the only way that parents can rest assured knowing that they are choosing an authentic Montessori school for their child is to select a school that has gone through the very rigorous and thorough CCMA accreditation process and is committed to adhering to best practices in Montessori education and methodology.
The Canadian Council of Montessori Administrators (CCMA) is Canada’s internationally recognized accreditation council that works to provide oversight, accountability and regulatory measures of Montessori educational standards in Canada.
The Clover School is a proud partner of WE Schools, a unique, four-step program that challenges young people to identify the local and global issues that spark their passion and empowers them with the tools to take action.
The WE Schools program provides our teachers and students with curriculum, educational resources and a full calendar of action campaign ideas. Students gain an understanding of the root causes of pressing issues like hunger, poverty and access to education, as they explore how they can make positive impacts. They also plan and carry out at least one local and one global action to improve their communities and the world.
The Edible Lab
In conjunction with our Urban Farming program, The Edible Lab is a hands on gardening education program that enables children to explore nature and STEM concepts while connecting them with their food, each other and nature.
Each Clover School is equipped with an Edible Lab managed and maintained by students under the guidance of our resident Urban Farmer, who is also a full time staff member.
Real Food for Real Kids
Parents of Primary and Elementary students have the option of taking part in our Real Food for Real Kids Lunch Program. Designed to inspire healthy and delicious food choices, Real Food for Real Kids delivers to our school daily. Their mission: enabling and inspiring healthy eating. Individual diets and food allergies are happily accommodated.
Parents who prefer to send a lunch to school with their child each day are more than welcome to do so.
