“A Guide, Not a Teacher” – Maria Montessori
Montessori staff is not in the classroom to ‘instruct’ students in the traditional sense. They guide the child in choosing learning materials that are both appealing and challenging to the child, based upon their abilities, interests, and previously mastered lessons. Once a child has received a lesson on any material, they are free to choose it as often as they like – each time gaining more skill and insight – until they have “mastered” the work and become disinterested. This cycle is similar to how a child chooses the same bedtime stories over and over again, memorizing each page, yet still enjoying the whole story.
All of Waves of Wonder staff is CPR & First Aid Certified. All have background checks as well, through Florida’s DCF (Department of Children and Families) and/or DOE (Department of Education).
We are lucky and proud of the qualified, loyal faculty and staff whose daily team efforts provide the strong foundation of our school:

She is a big fan of Disney and the spirit of Christmas. She also enjoys spending time at the beach.
