Montessori Preschools in Lakeland + Polk County

Montessori education is centered on independence and self-direction. Montessori education is traditionally hands-on and encourages plenty of play and collaboration with the other kids in the class. Classrooms are often mixed-age (covering 2-3 years) and teach children how to work together and learn from each other as they master life skills.

Below you’ll find a directory of Montessori Preschools near you in Winter Haven and Lakeland.

We recognize that finding a daycare or preschool with available space can be a daunting task. If after contacting the daycares on your list you are still having trouble finding an opening, visit the Lakeland Moms Group on Facebook and to ask your fellow moms if they know of a preschool or daycare with availability. Also, if you are pregnant and are interested in Montessori child care, it is never too early to start doing your research, some places may be willing to put you on a waiting list.
