- Child Care
Sweetbay Montessori School is opening in August 2018. This private Montessori school offers a lower elementary program for students ages 6-9 (grades 1-3) and a primary classroom for children ages 3 to 6, encompassing pre-k and kindergarten. Future plans to add upper grades are in the works.
Montessori is a philosophy and education method that fosters independence, using concrete materials that allow students to explore, discover, understand and apply concepts across curriculums.
With Walton county's current population of 30,000 full time residents expected to double in the next five years, now, more than ever, there is a crucial need for more educational options. Sweetbay Montessori will help fulfill the need for more quality schools in our county.
Theresa Joyce, an American Montessori Society (AMS) certified teacher in both Early Childhood and Elementary I, has led a lower elementary class for the past three years. She holds Florida State teaching certifications in Elementary and Special Education. Ms. Joyce, with 17 years of teaching experience, is the Elementary Lead Teacher and Head of School at Sweetbay Montessori .
