On February 27, 2019, we encourage everyone to practice kindness and wear pink to symbolize that you do not tolerate bullying. Will you join in by wearing pink on February 27, 2019 ?

Sunrise Montessori is strongly supporting this event by educating our students on the attributes of kindness and to establish a caring school community. We would like all our students, teachers and all staff to wear a pink T-shirt to symbolize our mission. We are also seeking sponsorship from parents, companies, SMS Parent Council, business organizations to sponsor this event by CASH sponsorship which will be used to provide free T-shirts to all and to all anti-bullying initiatives.

A sponsorship letter will be emailed out to all parents for their attention. We will be screening anti-bullying films (in all kinds of animation) throughout the day at our Gym. Children will also be provided with healthy pop-corns while watching these films.

Educational Benefits of Summer Camp

summer camp markham


No matter your age, you should strive to learn something new every day. You can make this happen for your child by enrolling them in our summer camp in Markham. Here, your child will take part in imaginative and entertaining educational activities that will allow them to explore their interests and try new things.

Exploring new activities
In our Summer Camp program, your child will be given the opportunity to try various activities. In doing so, they will be able to learn what they like and dislike, discover their strengths, and maybe even uncover a new passion. (more…)

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Sunrise Montessori School has come a long way since its opening in September 1988 from 15 children and two teachers to our achievement today of over 200 children and over 40 teachers.

This is certainly our year to celebrate our 30th Year Anniversary Celebration. View the flyer here.

To commemorate this event, we are planning for a fun filled day on Saturday, June 16, 2018 at our School. The event will commence from 11 am till 3 pm. A variety of fun-filled activities awaits you.

From Lion Dance to exciting activities for all in the family i.e. Hair braiding, Mani/Pedi, Face painting, Tattoo/Henna delight, Exciting Inflatables, Balloon Entertainer, Circus Show with a Juggler, Sunrise Got Talent Show, Master Chef Sunrise for fathers in conjunction with Father’s Day, Road Safety Campaign presented by the Elementary students, Lucky draws, 50/50 Draws (Cash $$$ is required for the 50/50 draw) and lots, lots more.

Our Sunrise Families will be served a Complimentary Lunch Set each (hot dog, fruits, drink and pop corn). Each person will be given a meal token for redemption at the Carnival.
