Where Is Your Child Spending
The Most Important Formative Years of  Life?

A Montessori Environment Is 
Where Children are Free to Grow and Love to Learn.

Welcome to our Five Montessori Academies.

Sonia A. Johnson established her first Montessori Academy over 40 years ago.

Our Montessori Schools are located in Tampa,Temple Terrace and Ocala, Florida

Excellence in education where children are free to grow and love to learn is her goal. She now directs three Montessori Academies and two Montessori Preparatory Schools. Her first Montessori Academy was established over 40 years ago in Tampa, FL.

The Montessori approach offers a broad vision of education as an aid to life. Montessori is designed to help children with their task of inner construction as they grow from childhood to maturity. It succeeds because it draws its principles from the natural development of the child. The inherent flexibility allows the method to adapt to the needs of the individual, regardless of the level of ability, learning style or social maturity.

Montessori classrooms provide a prepared environment where children are free to respond to their natural drive to work and learn. The children's inherent love of learning is encouraged by giving them opportunities to engage in spontaneous, meaningful activities under the guidance of a trained adult. Through their work, the children develop concentration, motivation, persistence and discipline. Within this framework of order, the children progress at their own pace and rhythm, according to their individual capabilities, during the crucial years of development.

The role of the Montessori Teacher is one of guide and observer, whose ultimate goal is to intervene less and less as the child develops. The teacher builds an atmosphere of calm, order and joy in the classroom and encourages the children in all their efforts, thus promoting self-confidence and discipline. The role of the Montessori Teacher is one of guide and observer, whose ultimate goal is to intervene less and less as the child develops.

Make an appointment to see all of these in action soon and to judge for yourself the many benefits a Montessori education can provide.
