Ecole Saint Sacrement
Blessed Sacrament Elementary School 

As a French Immersion school, we offer children the opportunity to learn to communicate in French at school and in society. Our aim is to help each student develop oral and written fluency in French, while learning about French heritage.

RELIGIOUS EDUCATION PROGRAM

Our goal is to increase the students' awareness of God's goodness, and His presence and action in their lives. Through basic teachings of our Catholic faith, we strive to develop in the students an ability to weigh moral values with an upright conscience; and to encourage an ever-deepening relationship with Jesus Christ and the Christian (Church) community.

This will be achieved through daily prayer , daily study of the Word of God, participation in liturgical and para-liturgical celebrations and the daily experience of living in a Christian Community

Montessori Children's Community Preschool

The Montessori Children's Community opened September 5, 2006 in the heart of the Cambie/Oakridge area in Vancouver.

The Montessori Children's Community is committed to supporting the wholesome growth and development of the human personality during the formative years of childhood. This is through the work of Dr. Maria Montessori. In this way, we can assist the child, not only in his natural quest for knowledge and independence, but also in his task of creating himself and in striving to realize his potential. This embodies Dr. Montessori's principle of education as an aid to life.

The Montessori Training Centre of British Columbia has been granted special permission to develop a Montessori prepared environment for children 3 to 6+ years of age following the criteria required by the Association Montessori Internationale for school recognition. Currently some B.C. regulations restrict Montessori schools from following such criteria.

The Montessori Children's Community will be a Pilot Project for British Columbia. The objectives of this Project are to establish a model class to demonstrate the excellent quality A.M.I. criteria promote and secondly, by working in collaboration with the Community Care Licensing Office in Vancouver to define a procedure that can be followed by other Montessori schools in B.C. which choose to operate according to A.M.I. requirements.
