At Yukon Montessori School we believe that one of the primary responsibilities facing us as parents and educators is to thoughtfully consider the journey of self discovery and learning ahead of every child. We hope that as you ponder your own child’s journey you consider how our school can meet your child’s needs. We are glad you’ve found us and we would be honoured to be a part of your child’s educational journey.The admissions process begins when you return an enrollment application to the school and contact the school to schedule a tour or request an enrollment package through email. Deciding on a tour of our classroom’s will allow you the opportunity to meet the teachers and observe a class in progress. Once you have reviewed the package, and a space has been allocated to your child, the enrollment form is submitted and the appropriate fees and deposits are collected.
Yukon Montessori School admits and does not discriminate students of any sex, race, colour, creed, or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.
YMS looks for families who share our philosophy. We believe that each child is unique and should be recognized as someone special. We also understand that in order to learn, children must feel safe, accepted, and competent in an environment that is encouraging, nurturing, supportive, and challenging. Our aim is to develop a school that is reflective of our community and provides a safe and welcoming space to all of our students, families, visitors, and community partners.
We look forward to meeting you and your child.

After school program
At the Yukon Montessori School, our school day ends at 3:30pm. We recognize, however, that not all parents are in a position to end their own work day at 3:30pm. We therefore offer an After School Program (non-Montessori) each day from 3:30pm to 5:00pm for all current students, including those in the elementary grades.
Parents should request registration in the After School Program (five days a week) when submitting your child’s application for registration with YMS. Registration in the After School Program will be made on a first-come-first-served basis. Should the After School Program be full, a waiting list will be maintained.
Once your child is registered in our After School Program, that spot will be held for him or her. At any point after registration, should your child no longer require the spot, parents must provide the school with one month’s written notice.
Drop-in spaces in the After School program are available to family at a rate of $20/day on a first come, first served basis. Please email email@example.com to enquire about availability.
