About Us

“It is true, we cannot make a genius … we can only give each individual the chance to fulfill his potential possibilities to become an independent, secure and balanced human being.”
– Dr. Maria Montessori

The Next Step Nursery School Inc. is a  Montessori learning center operated by Kathy Berke, B.Ed., PBC Ed., – Resource & Special Education, University of Manitoba. Kathy is also Montessori certified.  The School is licensed by Manitoba Family Services (Child Daycare) to offer a program for children 2 to 6 years of age with a maximum of 20 children per class.  The skills of Kathy and her team of trained caregivers, combined with the prepared environment of the ‘montessori’ classroom, provide a warm, caring and stimulating environment that enables each child to realize their full potential.

Annually during the first week of March we hold an Open House & Registration Evening for parents and children. We also encourage prospective parents/guardians to contact us to arrange a personal tour and see the difference that is Montessori learning.
