Sweetbay Montessori School
- Child Care
Sweetbay Montessori School is an early childhood and elementary school whose mission is to cultivate independence, self-confidence, leadership, and innovative thinking in an authentic Montessori environment.
The Montessori Method of education, developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, is a child-centered educational approach based on scientific observations of children from birth to adulthood. Dr. Montessori's Method has been time tested, with over 100 years of success in diverse cultures throughout the world.
Our students learn through hands-on exploration and participation in both individual and small group lessons tailored for each child's unique strengths and needs. Outdoor lessons, activities, and play are integral to our programs, and our students engage in both guided lessons and free-play in our natural play yard every day.
We are an American Montessori Society (AMS) full member school and are guided by the AMS Core Components of Montessori Education. Our lead teachers hold Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education (MACTE) certifications in both Early Childhood and Elementary Education, and also hold Florida state teaching certifications in Elementary Education.
