All our elementary and preschool teachers are Montessori trained and certified. Together we have over 150 years of experience in education, arts, and Montessori teaching. The children of our teachers and administrators have been through a Montessori education, so we have experienced the classroom from a parent’s perspective, as well as a teacher’s point of view. All our staff participate in annual workshops and classes to keep updated on the latest developments in education, Montessori education, arts, and related subjects.
We are the only member of the American Montessori Society (AMS) in the Homestead/Florida City area and we are accredited by the Association of Independent Schools of Florida (AISF). We are a licensed Child Care Facility by the State of Florida, Miami-Dade County Department of Children and Family Services (#C11MD1861). We are also approved to offer School Readiness aid for children 13 months through 5 years old.
Among the first schools in Miami to implement Primary Mathematics using the Singapore Math series in our curriculum, Atala Montessori School strives to improve our teacher training and student skills in math and science beginning with even our youngest children. We believe this system of mathematics goes hand in hand with our traditional Montessori math curriculum, presenting our students with concrete understanding of mathematical concepts.
