Happy first official planting week everyone!

Ministry Inspection, Langley
On Friday we had our scheduled school inspection by Theo M. VandeWeg, Inspector of Independent Schools. Véronique did an excellent job of going through the binders of policies, learning outcomes, staff credentials, safety procedures and a hundred questions that ensure we continue to qualify as a Class 1 school. I’m proud to say we came through with flying colours! Even more, the inspector encouraged us to contact other Montessori schools to collaborate on assessment accountability, patterned around Roots and Wings’ unique progress charts system. Big smiles and high fives after he left.
Surrey Centre toddlers get creative for Mother’s Day coming up next week.
Reminder about our SUMMER DAY CAMPS
Check our website for more information or to find a registration form. Our Spring Camp was very popular so this may fill fast.
Accommodation wanted: new staff members are in the wings for our teaching staff, who seek accommodation in the Langley area, as close to the school as possible. If anyone knows of a 2-3 bedroom home for rent, please let us know.
