About Island Montessori
Island Montessori provides a nurturing, supportive environment in a beautiful, spacious garden created to establish a love of active learning. The programmes are open to children aged 12 months–6 years and use the very best Montessori practices and materials aligned with the Cayman Islands Early Years Framework.
All classes are underpinned by a belief that children should be active, and outdoor learning is blended into each day. At the heart of the school is a team of highly qualified, passionate teachers who create an age and developmentally appropriate environment. The school’s bright and spacious classrooms are complimented by an expansive 1.5 acre garden featuring a nature trail, sports court, and areas for unstructured play and exploration.
At Island Montessori their little learners draw as much inspiration from nature and being in the tropical outdoors as they do from the guided activities inside their classrooms. They combine their passion for early childhood education with an inclusive culture of curiosity, respect and flexibility that helps your child and your family thrive.
