School Director

Mr. Gregory Dixon


On behalf of the OMS Montessori community, thank you for visiting our website. As School Director, I have the privilege of working with a proficient team of parents, alumni, faculty and staff who are dedicated to offering their best to each of our students. We work tirelessly to realize our mission by delivering an educational experience designed to inspire and challenge students to discover the best of who they are, while year after year reaching to achieve their full potential.

As a parent, you recognize that choosing a school for your child is one of the most significant decisions you will make. We need specific criteria by which to choose the ideal educational approach for our children. It is clear that the school years help to form the core foundation of our approach to learning and problem-solving, as well as who we are as contributing, global citizens. We at OMS are here to support you.

At OMS, we provide our students with an educational foundation from which they can achieve personal and academic goals, while building independence, self-confidence and self-esteem. The unique Montessori methodology, with its child-centred approach, encourages the development of personal responsibility and thinking skills, as well as fostering a love of learning. Each child is guided in the exploration of his or her own learning style and the development of work habits most suited to individual interests and needs.

Please browse our website and discover how we work together with OMS parents to empower students to become self-regulated, engaged and lifelong learners. As trained experts in education, we understand that observation is an essential component in the decision making process. As such, we would like to invite you to visit us for a tour of our spacious and peaceful learning environment. This is the most personal way to see what OMS Montessori has to offer your child and family.

OMS Montessori is a not-for-profit school. For over 50 years, we have offered exceptional education to families in the city of Ottawa. OMS welcomes you to call and chat with our friendly staff (613-521-5185) or email ( regarding your child’s education. Share with us how we can partner with you and your family to further explore Montessori education and philosophy.

It is with great anticipation that we embark on the next 50 years at OMS Montessori. Please join us on this journey of promise and excitement.
