Especially For Children

Tel: (321)777-1480
  • At Especially For Children, classes are offered to children ages 18 months to 36 months of age, in a Montessori environment.
  • Children are encouraged to explore, discover and initiate in a safe, loving environment.
  • The goals of our program include allowing each child to experience the love of learning, by taking advantage of what Maria Montessori described as "sensitive periods of learning" various skills and concepts.
  • Specific goals of our program are to develop independence, enrich language, refine developmental coordination and sensory discrimination, and to develop curiosity and cognitive skills.
  • We provide an ordered and aesthetic environment designed to supplement the home environment, which supports the growth of independence and self-confidence.
  • We believe this environment will free children to learn. Especially For Children shares its campus with Indian Harbour Montessori, our private Elementary School for Kindergarten through the 6th grade.

As you’ve been doing your boarding school research, you’ve likely seen ISEE/SSAT score submission requirements for your target schools, and understand how important scores are to the admissions process. Unfortunately, tremendous candidates can get bypassed because they were not able to demonstrate what they knew on test day.

Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
