Need advice on elementary schools

Postby Anna_K on Wed Mar 30, 2016 3:48 pm

Hello everybody! I am so happy to find this resource! Hope to meet some of you soon.

My family is moving to Victoria area this summer (from Ottawa). We are three people: myself and my husband and our 9 year old daughter + a cat + a dog.

While I am very excited about the move, I am having some trouble deciding on the area. We both work remotely from home, so we can live anywhere but would like to be close to a good elementary school. Our daughter is quite artistic; she has been in a Montessori school in Ottawa. I think she would fare well in either public or private school, but what would you recommend that has emphasis on art/music? Ideally, I am also looking for an outdoor education program as part of the curriculum.

We came for a short visit a few weeks ago and particularly liked Sooke/Metchosin area but I am having trouble figuring our the differences between schools in that area. Any advice?

Thanks so much for any help!

West-Mont Montessori sounds like it would be a good fit for your daughter.

Good luck!
