Tel: (813)354-9511
Grades: PK - 6 | 72 students
The Montessori Children's House of Hyde Park is accredited by AMI, the Association Montessori Internationale, an organization created to protect Dr. Montessori's work in it's true form.
The highest standards are required to maintain this yearly accreditation.
There are only a handful of AMI schools in Florida.
Our school was established in 1996 and has been led by Ms.
Amanda Linton-Evans, Head of School.
The school is dedicated to providing a quality Montessori education in a small environment for children ages 3 to 12.
The school seeks families that are interested in a long term Montessori education for their children.
The children of the elementary classroom have different needs and challenges than those of the three to six year old children.
These children possess strong imaginations and are physically stronger.
They look at the world with a different perspective.
They are concerned with right and wrong, with the unusual and the extraordinary.
Where the younger children required physical order, these children require order of the unseen.
They are moving from a mechanical way towards an intellectual level.
These children need a more abstract approach, one that aids in the development of logical, reasoning minds.
The elementary classroom changes its approach and materials to nurture these characteristics, and again, follows the children.
The prepared environment encourages children to be self-motivated, active, and inquisitive learners.
