COVID-19 Measures

OMS Montessori is committed to ensuring the safety of our students, staff and families.  The classrooms, washrooms and common areas are cleaned and sanitized during the noon recess when staff and students are outside and again in the evening following a thorough cleaning. Additional scheduled cleanings are done throughout the day.

Outdoor areas such as playgrounds and equipment are fogged following the use by each cohort and prior to a new cohort using the space.

Before entering the school each day, Parents complete a digital screening survey confirming the health of their child.  At arrival, each student has the outside
of their backpack sanitized and their temperature taken and recorded.
Screening staff are wearing proper PPE as directed by Ottawa Public Health including a mask and facial shield and are behind plexiglass.
OMS is committed to following all directives from Ottawa Public Health, MInistry of Health and Ministry of Education with regular updates to our families and staff.
Our classrooms remain welcoming environments with full Montessori materials although tables and chairs are spaced to ensure physical distancing.
Some materials have been modified to ensure surfaces can be cleaned and sanitized daily.
We appreciate the commitment our families have made to further ensure the safety of our school community.

Parent Testimonials

The Montessori way of education in your school has stimulated our daughter’s interest and continuously improved her levels of self-motivated learning and social communication abilities… We definitely recommend OMS Montessori to the consideration of all our friends in Ottawa. – Nan and Qinghua Zhang, parents of a current Upper Elementary student
We wish to thank you for your support with our son. This past year he has been blessed with the opportunity to join Casa at OMS. We cannot begin to tell you how much he has grown and thrived. He has received such beautiful guidance and support from his teachers. We feel very blessed. We thank each day for the gift of OMS and its wonderful teachers. OMS has truly changed our son’s and our family’s life.
The facility is above and beyond our previous experience. The staff is experienced and professional. There is a rich second language program. We could go on… When we visited the classroom, it was clear the children were having a peaceful, beautiful, and fulfilling school experience.
Thank you for your time, your passion, and your dedication to teaching our children in the wonderful and caring way that you do. You have taught them to be creative and to express themselves in new ways. As a result our children are confident and motivated among many more great qualities that they have acquired under your leadership at OMS Montessori.
