The campus is located on a wooded, two-acre historic property, walking distance to Downtown Oakville and beautiful parks. Dearcroft is CCMA accredited and a founding member of the Oakville Independent Schools. Our nurturing, highly dedicated staff take great pride in providing a warm and engaging learning environment for our students. Dearcroft offers programs for Toddlers (18 months) to Grade 8, through a dynamic, highly enriched learning experience within our supportive and close-knit community. Our experienced and qualified staff, excellent ratios and long-term relationships allow us to focus on all aspects of each child’s development.  A Montessori education, due to its unique ability to identify and nurture individual strengths, does a remarkable job of creating graduates who go on to change the world.

They never stopped learning and continue to push boundaries… creating exciting new paradigms within their chosen fields. Their business cultures are outstanding examples of meaningful change and as individuals they have emerged as world ambassadors of inspired leadership.
