Founded in 2008, Emerging Minds Montessori Academy is located at the West Campus of First United Methodist Church. The campus is filled with many beautiful trees and boasts a truly natural environment nestled in the heart of West Boca Raton. We are a non-religious Montessori school serving children ages 2 through 8th grade.
Our program is designed to fulfill the needs of the whole child. We strongly follow the principals of Dr. Maria Montessori, which is based on the philosophy that children learn best when engaged in purposeful activity. It is our position that every child is an individual who deserves to be respected and honored and should be given lessons according to his/her unique style and potential in a clean, safe, well-equipped environment.
Our teachers, staff, and families are partners in promoting good character and values, such as kindness, compassion, respect for all living things, as well as respect and care for the environment. Together we are committed to helping the child become aware of his/her responsibility and importance within the community.
It is our goal to provide every child with a strong academic foundation, to help build a positive self-image, encourage continued community service, and to inspire them to become self-motivated independent, lifelong learners.
