The Montessori Children’s House of Hyde Park is accredited by the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI), 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.
What Sets Montessori Apart?
- Emphasis on cognitive development and independence
- Mainly individual instruction
- Mixed age groups
- Children work at their own pace
- Environment and methoself discipline and
“I consider it a crime…to require the child to memorise that which he has not been able to visualise…The secret of good teaching is to regard the child ‘s intelligence as a fertile field in which seeds may be sown,to grow under the heat of flaming imagination.” -Maria Montessori
The Florida Council of Independent Schools (FCIS)
In addition to our AMI accreditation, we are also accredited by the Florida Council of Independent Schools (FCIS).
The council, was founded in Jacksonville in December 1954, promotes the highest standards for PK-12 education through its accreditation process, professional development programming, and advocacy efforts. To ensure quality, all member schools must undergo an extensive accreditation process, with a periodic evaluation every five years. Schools must successfully meet standards found in the FCIS Bylaws and Standards Manual, demonstrate financial stability, provide quality education, and successfully undergo evaluation visits to be granted and to retain membership in FCIS.
