Maria Montessori, The Discovery of the Child (p. 52)
Bay Grove Montessori School is an early childhood and elementary school serving the Freeport-local community. Our mission is to provide students with a safe, warm, nurturing, and engaging environment that is rooted in Montessori philosophy and practice. Here at Bay Grove, we cherish and encourage children’s natural curiosity and love of learning and help instill respect for self, others, nature, and the Earth.
At Bay Grove Montessori School, we emphasize the needs of each individual child and provide authentic, high-fidelity Montessori education to children in Freeport, Florida. We inspire students to be independent, self-confident, and responsible leaders, innovators, and citizens, committed to a better world.
We believe in the child’s uniqueness and potentiality. Because of our profound respect for the child, we choose to guide our children using the Montessori method.
The Montessori Method is a time-tested and evidence-based approach to education. It is individualized and designed to meet the needs of each child and promote intrinsic motivation, self-confidence, and self-regulation. Our curriculum cultivates grace and courtesy, independence, peace, leadership, innovation, and respect. By honoring the child as a whole, fostering a global mindset through peace education, offering leadership opportunities and guidance, and inspiring a lifelong love of learning, Montessori inspires students to be independent, self-confident, and responsible leaders, innovators, and citizens.
We asked local artist Franciso Adaro to help us create a new logo that embodies a child's sense of creativity and wonder, while showing reverence and care for nature and earth. We are humbled by his beautiful creation.
Thank you, Francisco for visually capturing who we are and what we believe.
