Our Philosophy

Our primary objective at Canterbury Academy is to provide the most enriching environment to facilitate a child’s development. We believe that every child has the ability to learn and to teach, and that a child who enjoys learning will always seek challenges in life.

Our programs are based upon the Montessori principles of self-direction, and experiential education. We promote a thoughtful and sensitive atmosphere in each classroom, and we support cooperation between children as they learn from one another.

What Makes Us Unique

Canterbury Academy schools are known for our warmly decorated, homelike environment. Our family-friendly policy is one that welcomes parent visits any time of the day. We host monthly events and parties celebrating major holidays that create a fun, celebratory feel on campus. We also offer age-appropriate playgrounds and outdoor learning environments.

Breakfast and a hot, nutritious lunch is made on-premises by our full-time cook and served each day along with regularly scheduled snacks.

Our Location

We are conveniently located near the intersection of Metcalf Avenue and W 119th St, less than a mile from the I-435 and US-69 freeways. Some of our neighboring communities include Deer Creek and Lionsgate. We’re excited to show you what makes Canterbury Preparatory School different.

First of all, thank you so much Canterbury ❤️ My little girl is completing one year here. Since it was her first school, she was crying literally every day for almost 3 months. The amazing teachers are taking care of her very well. They gave advice to us and by following that we could see improvements in her behaviour. Now she is very happy to go to school and meet her friends and teachers. I must say that the teachers are very patient. I really like activities like maths puzzles, alphabet puzzles etc. Moreover, the teachers are receiving the kids with a happy face and hugs 🙂 The management is also good. They are conducting events in which parents can also join. They are sending daily updates with photos, which I would really like to see. I am happy to send my little girl to these amazing people.
