About Island Village Montessori

Island Village Montessori School and our associated programs are designed to provide a child-centered, community-oriented education, rooted in the scientific teachings of Dr. Maria Montessori. Although our preschools are funded by private tuition, we work hard to keep our tuition among the lowest for area Montessori schools. Beginning in the Fall of 2006, IVMS early childhood programs will participate in the Voluntary Pre-K for four year-olds, a new State program that provides approximately $2,500 tuition scholarship per child. There is no tuition for our elementary and middle school programs. All age- appropriate children of Sarasota, Manatee, and Charlotte County residents are eligible to attend. Our academic programs offer a uniquely prepared, individualized educational environment that emphasize the intellectual and humanitarian development of students who are self-disciplined, cooperative, responsible, and creative thinkers of the community as well as the world. All IVMS classrooms are multi-age, which creates a community setting within the classroom. Older children mentor younger and younger children rely on and learn from older students as well as the adults in the classroom. This independence fosters a sense of self-reliance necessary for success in the adult world. The School's pedagogical philosophy is based on the premise that excellence in education requires an extraordinary commitment on the part of the family, school, and community members. The central focus of this compact is the belief that families are ultimately responsible for their child's growth and development. Families are asked to give at least 20 hours of volunteer time per school year. There are many ways to volunteer at our school, especially if it is difficult to get a day off from work. Research shows that children do better in school the more the family gets involved. Montessori teachers are trained to keenly observe, diagnose, and facilitate an individual education plan for each learner that is cooperatively developed by both teacher and child. The Montessori curriculum is a developmentally appropriate, experiential learning system that facilitates a sense of mastery and accomplishment.
