Great news from Ecole Setsuko! We’re expanding and adding an exciting new location on the West Island of Montreal while keeping our beloved NDG school going strong. This new spot is bigger, which means more space for all our students, awesome new workshops, and the opportunity to offer diplomas like Swedish Massage and Shiatsu more frequently. 🙌
We’re getting our new location ready and can’t wait to share photos with you in the coming week. To celebrate, we’re hosting an open house to welcome our students and introduce ourselves to our new neighbours. We’re all about community and providing quality education, just like we’ve been doing in NDG for almost 20 years.
Stay tuned for the open house dates; we’ll announce them as soon as we’re all set! We’re super excited about this new chapter and looking forward to meeting many new students.
Find us at the new address: 1564 Chem. Herron Suite 208, Dorval, QC H9S 1B7. It’s super convenient – right beside Pine Beach Train Station, a mere 30-second walk from the train, and the 211 bus stop is right in front of us! Plus, we’re just off Highway 20 with plenty of parking available.
We can’t wait to embark on this adventure with you all!
