Learn. Grow. Thrive.

Rooted in the principles of Dr. Maria Montessori, our educational approach fosters a love of learning while encouraging independence and promoting a holistic development.


Our vision is to create a community where children learn, thrive, and grow in an environment that fosters independence, creativity, and a lifelong love of learning. Guided by the Montessori philosophy, we nurture the whole child, preparing them for a fulfilling life through offering individualized learning experiences that respect each child's unique pace and style, encouraging curiosity and a deep understanding of the world.


At TBM, children are empowered to explore their interests, discover their unique talents and cultivate a lifelong passion for knowledge and learning. Our educators guide children by creating a supportive environment where children can flourish academically, socially and emotionally. 


Since 2008, Trillium Bilingual Montessori  has been a beacon of excellence in early childhood education. With over a decade of experience in nurturing young minds, we have created a warm and welcoming environment where children can thrive and reach their full potential. Our dedicated staff, proven curriculum, and focus on individualized learning have set us apart as a leader in Montessori education. 


As part of the Canada Wide Early Learning Childcare (CWELCC) program, parents are saving more than 50% on childcare fees every month. Trillium Bilingual Montessori is proud to provide every opportunity for all children to attend quality childcare programing.


With 78 childcare spaces available, Trillium Bilingual Montessori services children as young as 18 months, with 2 Pre-Casa classrooms, up to the age of 6 years old, with 2 Casa  classrooms. 

TBM offers the option for children to complete their JK and SK on site, getting them ready for grade one in another Montessori program or non-Montessori program. 


Since opening our doors, TBM has had the privilege of welcoming over 1,000 children. Our commitment to providing a nurturing and enriching environment has helped each child thrive and reach their fullest potential.

With a focus on individualized learning and a passion for fostering curiosity and independence, we continue to inspire young minds every day. 

Our Programs

Our program is designed for children to grow from our Pre-Casa that is an introduction to Montessori so they can continue their Montessori learning journey in our Casa rooms where a natural transition eases them into a more structured learning environment.

Music and Movement

TBM encourages children to take body breaks  as needed, at anytime during the day by making yoga mats and cards available to children in every room. 

Our educators will host "formal" group yoga sessions with the children at various times to teach the children poses and breathing exercises to practice on their own. Yoga is a great form of stretching and relaxing for children that can be done quietly any time of day.

"My son loves the pre-casa program here! The teachers are excellent, the program is stimulating and rewarding, and the classrooms are beautifully organised. He does a lot of activities and puzzles during the day, and they always put on fun and interactive group activities like painting, singing & dancing, and reading. They also worked their magic and taught a toddler who had never slept in a crib, or fallen asleep by himself, to fall asleep by himself on his own cot - all within a week or so. Highly recommend this school!"

At our Montessori School in Kitchener, Ontario, we acknowledge that we are on the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee, and Neutral Peoples. We recognize the enduring presence and contributions of Indigenous peoples to this land.

We are committed to fostering a community that respects and honors the history, cultures, and traditions of all Indigenous peoples. By integrating this understanding into our educational practices, we aim to contribute to reconciliation and support a future where all children can learn, thrive, and grow in a spirit of mutual respect and understanding.
