Future Scholars Montessori Academy opened its doors in January of 2013.
FSMA is built on the passion of its creators, Mrs. Agata Attersoll and Mrs.
Priyanka Aggarwal. The two ladies met at a Montessori school they both worked
at and quickly realized that they share a vision of what an inspiring Montessori
school should be. The inspiration to open their own educational institution
came after watching their children learn about the world at Montessori schools
in Ottawa. The education they received propelled the Directors to open Future
Scholars Montessori Academy.
FSMA is designed to follow the Montessori Method. The classrooms cater to
children's needs and their developmental stages. Everything is designed
to follow the child. The prepared environments of each classroom allow the
children to learn to the utmost of their potential.
Attersoll has been a Montessori Directress for over a decade. She
earned her American Montessori Society credentials in 2000. Agata
was lucky to have wonderful, inspiring teachers like Ms. Elaine Flett,
owner of Tall Pines Motnessori School in Brampton, as well as Ms.
Darcelle Butler, who works and lives Montessori in Louisiana.
Since then, Agata has worked at the Casa level, inspiring children
to be the best they can be.
Agata's higher education was completed at Ottawa's Carleton University
where she earned a Bachelor's Degree in English Literature.
Agata's inspiration to open her own school came after watching both
her daughters attend Montessori schools from Infant through Casa levels.
The education they received there has helped them immensely in the
"real world". Agata's interest is to be part of a school not just
dedicated to educating young minds, but preparing children for the
world of tomorrow. The characteristics of independence, confidence
and lifelong curiosity about learning are what Future Scholars Montessori
Academy promotes and instills in their children.

was duly impressed with how children were learning such advanced work
at such an early age. What was more impressive though, was the enthusiasm
Using the degrees she earned in India, Priyanka embarked on a teaching
career at a Montessori school in Ottawa. She was inspired by the specific,
hands-on method of education. Priyanka's Montessori career flourished
upon her move to a different school, where she not only was placed
in the classroom, but also expanded her knowledge by taking a position
in the office.
Priyanka's degrees include a Bachelor's of Education
and Science as well as a Master's in English.
