Founded in 1978, the Montessori Learning Center of Fort Walton Beach is a private Montessori-based school currently serving children in PK-3 through 1st Grade. Since our founding, our school has earned a reputation for academic excellence, but Montessori Learning Center understands that an exceptional early childhood educational experience is not just limited to academics.
The Montessori Method of Education is regarded by many leaders in child development as unsurpassed in helping children achieve their full potential in academics, self-reliance, and self-respect. This method fosters creativity, curiosity, and critical thinking in students. Montessori Learning Center fosters these same qualities by providing students with a variety of meaningful experiences and intentionally developed hands-on activities that empower students to learn and explore the world around them. We help each child explore his or her individual interests and strengths, and teach students how to build on those unique gifts for success not only during their time at the Montessori Learning Center, but as a foundation for lifelong learning and achievement. Each child who progresses through our program will grow in academic competence and a mastery of essential life skills.
Montessori Learning Center is the place to find your strength, your self-reliance, your self-respect, your passion, and your own path to future success. It’s a place to build character and develop social skills. It’s a place of strong foundations.
