Located in the heart of Dr. Phillips, Growing Minds Montessori School has been educating children based on the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori for over 10 years.
We serve a community of children and families from diverse social and cultural backgrounds. Our trained faculty and staff recognizes each child's early years as their most critical developmental time.
Growing Minds Montessori School offers morning, afternoon, and extended day individualized learning programs in an intimate classroom setting 5 days a week for children ages 2 ½ through 6 years of age.
Our classrooms are organized into several curriculum areas such as language arts, Mathematics and Geometry, Cultural Studies (Botany, Zoology, Anatomy & Science), Practical Life Skills, Sensory Awareness, Geography and History. We also provide Spanish, Art, Music and Movement.
We pride ourselves on recognizing each child's unique talents and abilities, and guiding children during their most critical years of development.
At Growing Minds Montessori School we recognize parents as the child's first teachers and encourage participation from the parents and families of our students.
Each class at Growing Minds Montessori School is a community of children and teachers, normally spanning an age range of three years. Our students typically learn in the same classroom with the same teacher for 3 years. Teachers then have the privilege of channeling the educational process over years, rather than months. The children form lasting friendships with teachers and fellow students. The multi-age grouping gives the older children the opportunity of being leaders while the younger children look up to the older friends as role models and get help whenever asked.
Our Orlando Montessori School introduces children to the joy of learning at an early age and provides a framework in which individual and social discipline go hand in hand.
The small student/teacher ratio and the small class size assure and encourage each child’s independence, creativity and intelligence at their own pace.
We nurture each child’s spontaneous curiosity and help establish habits of concentration and work choice during the early years, which will produce confident and competent learners in later years.
Each child is treated as a unique individual, and is helped to investigate, explore, and discover, which ultimately prepares him/her for the world of tomorrow.
“We must help the child act, think and will for himself. This is the art of serving the spirit, an art which can be practiced to perfection only when working with children”Dr. Maria Montessori
At Growing Minds Montessori School we are proud of our international composition. We welcome students of all races and ethnic backgrounds. The children in our school are exposed to an early awareness and advantage of meeting people from all around the world.
