Garden Montessori School (GMS) is affiliated with America Montessori Society (AMS) meeting all standards of excellence in accordance with national guidelines.
GMS is currently establishing its accreditation through AMS and the Florida Kindergarten Council (FKC) .
The activities and environment provided in a Montessori school stimulate and develop a thirst for learning, a curiosity about one's surroundings and a desire to discover and to do things for oneself.
We hope during a child's development he/she will learn to solve problems using an organized approach, to use freedom wisely, to respect others, and develop a love for learning.
