Westbrook Montessori Academy Wins Award for Best Montessori School in Mississauga

Mississauga, ON - November 3 2014: The Westbrook Montessori Academy has recently won the 2014 Top Choice Award for Best Montessori School in Mississauga, Ontario. Riz Ratanshi, the director and co-founder of the school, will be accepting the award on November 7 2014. This prestigious award is very important for Ratanshi and will be a crucial aspect of the continued success of the school. 

Westbrook Montessori Academy was originally founded by Riz Ratanshi and his mother back in 2003. Mrs. Ratanshi had a passion for early childhood education and when paired with her son’s aptitude for business and industry experience, the duo created a warm and nurturing Montessori Mississauga school. Although Mrs. Ratanshi has since passed away, her legacy lives on through the love and dedication that runs through the hallways of the school. 

Westbrook Montessori Academy is accredited by the CCMA and has been in operation for over a decade. It is conveniently situated in a central, yet quiet location, in a residential neighborhood that is within close proximity to all major highways providing easy access and service to a number of locations including; Mississauga, Oakville, Brampton, Milton, Caledon, and Burlington. The motto of Westbrook Montessori Academy is “Seek to Achieve” which is used as a benchmark when engaging and inspiring students to learn. The school achieves a learning environment that is conducted with love and respect for one another. 

The Mississauga Montessori school provides an effective education based daycare system for toddlers and senior kindergarteners alike. All of the teachers and assistants are fully Montessori accredited and hold many qualifications including; ECE diplomas, and Ontario College of Teachers credentials. The school programs follow the educational approach developed by the Italian physician Maria Montessori and is characterized by an emphasis on independence, freedom, and respect. All of the provided learning materials are designed to stimulate a child’s mind and help achieve attainable goals. The school’s methods are proven to provide children joy and help them achieve future challenges with confidence. 

A professor at the University of Virginia researched the teaching methods of Montessori schools in comparison with regular public schools and found that the math and reading skills of Montessori students were far more advanced than those in regular public school. Montessori schools start building essential skills at a young age and are reinforced through the provision of sensorial materials, and practical life exercises that require children to follow specific procedures for each activity. 

Westbrook Montessori Academy provides plenty of opportunities for children to practice their skills in a fun and challenging environment. Riz Ratanshi, the director of Westbrook Montessori Academy, a Canadian Council of Montessori Administrators accredited school, for children 18 months to 6 years of age, is proud to accept the 2014 Top Choice Award for Best Montessori School in Mississauga, Ontario on November 7 2014. For more information about the local Mississauga Montessori school, individuals are encouraged to visit the Westbrook Montessori Academy website directly.

What Others are Saying About Us...

"Over the past five years, both of our children attended Westbrook Montessori Academy. Our son started out as a shy three-year-old and graduated as a confident, outgoing child eager to enter elementary school. Now in Grade 3, he works independently and solves problems based on the skills taught and practiced at Westbrook. He is also successful with group work, understands the concept of sharing and truly enjoys being in the classroom. 

Our daughter, also an introvert, flourished in an environment where she could appreciate the balance of a structured classroom environment complemented with unstructured play time. The teachers saw her knack of helping others and encouraged her by providing informal mentoring opportunities for her younger classmates. The Montessori experience has definitely prepared her academically as well as socially for her entrance into Grade 1 next year. 

Westbrook Montessori Academy helped lay a foundation for our two children that they will carry throughout their lives. The owner of the school, Riz Ratanshi, and his entire staff truly care about the well-being of the children. They understand how every child is unique in how they learn and the speed with which they process information. The atmosphere is extremely supportive and nurturing while instilling the core concepts of the Montessori philosophy. 

We will truly miss Riz and the teachers now that our children have moved on. We were privileged to be part of the Westbrook community and will always be grateful to the school for the groundwork that it provided for our children. We have and will continue to recommend Westbrook to anyone looking for an enriching experience for their kids. Thank you Westbrook for the wonderful memories."
