About Us

Welcome to First Montessori

Nestled in the heart of Downtown Sarasota, our dedicated team at First Montessori strives to provide a safe, nurturing, and enjoyable learning environment to ensure that each child builds a strong, meaningful foundation to carry for the rest of their lives.

Come see the difference in action, with small classroom sizes, a Montessori method curriculum, faith-based education, hands-on learning, and more!

From The Head Of Our School

"Even though I have had the opportunity to educate thousands of children throughout my career, I am still amazed - every single day - by every child I come in contact with.

Children have an innate design to listen, learn, and grow. And as an educator, my job is to capture that interest and help guide the child - not force the child - towards being a well-rounded social, physical, emotional, and intellectual member of our community.

If you are a parent, grandparent, or caregiver, I hope you'll consider touring our school and joining me for a conversation."
