Roots and Wings Montessori


Roots & Wings Montessori School

“We recognize who children are and what they can be – and how far our current education system is from enabling them. We empower children to be independent, self-propelled life-long learners, supporting them in discovering their strengths, their gifts and passions, and using them in service to others; we enable them to discover wonder in nature, a connection which motivates them to steward their earth.”


– Kristin Cassie, Roots & Wings Founder and Principal

Extended Day (Kindergarten)

Location: Heritage House

Extended Day (full-day Kindergarten) is Available at our Heritage House location.

Many five-year-olds are ready for what is termed the “Extended Day” program. Here they delve further into various areas of the curriculum and gain practice with the many new hands-on skills they are learning. This group is becoming very social and cooperative learning is common, on field trips as well as in the classroom. Their year is crowned by a graduation event with appropriate pomp and ceremony. Children enter the Extended Day program only on the recommendation of their teachers and after having spent some time in a Primary (preschool) classroom.

A limited number of spaces are available each year. Please contact us to find out more!

Parent Testimonials

“After a great deal of research into preschools and early education opportunities for young children in Surrey, we reached Roots and Wings and were surprised and impressed to find a school that did not just teach children but put a great deal of effort into teaching children as young as our three year old to understand the value of sustainability, stewardship, community service, etc. This is not just another school but a model school.”

William and Sobhana Daniel

“Roots and Wings has been a wonderful haven for learning and personal development for our son for four years now. There is so much to be said for honoring the individual learning needs of our youth! Bravo Roots and Wings Montessori School!”

Namaste, Tamara Veitch

“This school will be the first of many to pop up across our nation because it meets the real needs of the children. It provides for a world-class learning environment in a caring atmosphere of good stewardship, community relations, and advanced academic skills.”

Sande and Simon Marples
