Mission Statement & Philosophy

Mission Statement

Montessori School of Fort Myers follows PEACEFUL principles to provide an individualized approach to nurture each child’s natural love of learning.  We shape independent, confident, out-of-the-box thinkers by teaching life skills through hands on experiences and peaceful conflict resolution.

Our PEACEFUL Principles

We actively teach peaceful conflict resolution and self-calming skills in a calm classroom environment. 

Experience-based learning
Students learn through real life experiences and hands on materials.

We are committed to following the teachings and methods of Dr. Maria Montessori in accordance with the standards laid out by the American Montessori Society. 

Our students, their families, our teachers, and administration strive to build a strong, family-like learning community.

The Montessori classroom is a prepared environment that has been optimized to provide the ideal learning environment for each age group.  Our prepared environments give children access to the appropriate materials during their sensitive periods of development.

Students are granted freedom within limits. We give children freedom of movement, freedom of choice in their learning journey, and loving guidance from all the adults in their lives.

Universal Respect
Our community teaches and shares universal respect for each other, our school, and our Earth. 

Love of Learning
A Montessori education inspires and instills a life-long love for learning in all community members.
