The environment at our school encourages students to explore, question, and perfect their skills. Located in one of Miami’s vibrant neighborhoods, we promote diversity and acceptance so that our students learn from a young age to embrace differences. Classroom materials are designed to capture a child’s natural curiosity and our teachers use that spark of interest to guide their students' growth and learning into skill and competence. The result is a sense of accomplishment that cannot come from sitting in a traditional schoolroom.
THE PREPARED ENVIRONMENT
Our campus and classrooms are the modern embodiment of Maria Montessori's groundbreaking approach to education.
Natural lighting, natural hues, and uncluttered environments contribute to a sense of harmony and order that structures and motivates self-directed work. Learning materials are accessible to children, encouraging inquiry and experimentation. Every room is designed to promote the natural flow of learning and all types of student participation. Student spaces include quiet reading or thinking areas, tables with equipment for hands-on learning and production, and active movement and play areas.
Our teachers prepare every classroom for this type of learning. In anticipation of creating attractive settings that are warm and inviting, and stimulate each student's next fascination.
THE OUTDOOR CLASSROOM
Our outdoor classroom and gardens, at their most basic, connect our children with the natural world, from birds singing to butterflies fluttering to digging in the dirt while contemplating peace. Our students become acquainted with and appreciate nature in as many ways as possible while developing environmental stewardship skills.
Papillon Montessori offers students a wide range of experiences through our extensive array of facilities and buildings. We have obtained a beautiful collection of outdoor buildings that allow for new and fun experiences amongst our students. Some of our highlighted programs include after-school swimming, tennis, basketball, and many other outdoor activities. Our campus holds a state-of-the-art playground and jungle gym, as well as hosting a vast culmination of wildlife spread throughout our beautiful campus.
