Palencia Montessori Academy is a special place that encourages knowledge, independent thinking, global awareness, creativity, and mutual respect. We are located in beautiful and historic St. Augustine, Florida. Our work environment is peaceful and joyful, located in the heart of the Palencia Community. At Palencia Montessori, you will have the opportunity to make a difference in a child’s life every day. Your patient and loving nature will create an environment to allow the child to explore confidently and build self-esteem. We strive to create an enriched environment so that the children are inspired to reach their highest potential using the Montessori philosophy education. The Faculty of the school is made up of a combination of a developmental psychologist, certified lead teachers, associate teachers, and classroom guides that thrive in a school climate of ongoing professional development. This creates opportunities for growth within our school.
