“Imagination does not become great until human beings, given the courage and strength, use it to create” M.Montessori.

Killarney school is a CBE alternative Montessori based elementary program that services over 350 kids from K-6.  To honour the 150th year of Maria Montessori, the Killarney Parent Council created the 150th Legacy Project.  This project will enhance a publicly-accessible outdoor green space that reflects the values of MONTESSORI in experiential learning, natural world and land-based learning, and community peace.


In keeping with the tenets of MONTESSORI and to create a legacy of Killarney school history as a center of Montessori, our objectives are to:

  1. Introduce outdoor spaces that encourage land-based learning and connection

  2. Improve outdoor equipment that promotes safe hands-on interaction and exploration for all grades / ages

  3. Enhance the natural landscape to increase public interface with nature
