New location, new premises, same high quality schooling

Bear lake Montessori Academy is situated in the city of Altamonte Springs. Our new location has been re-developed extensively to provide a safe environment for our young students, whilst ensuring they have the space to learn and grow. We are proud of our school and encourage you to book a tour. Our methodology to teaching is based on the principles of Dr Maria Montessori who encouraged children to learn naturally through activity.

Our care of the child should be governed, not by the desire to make him learn things, but by the endeavor always to keep burning within him that light which is called intelligence.

Montessori Classroom

A Montessori classroom provides an atmosphere which encourages social interaction for cooperative learning, peer teaching and emotional development.



Montessori is a philosophy with the fundamental tenet that a child learns best within a social environment which supports each individual’s unique development.



The Montessori Classrooms are grouped into five general areas: Practical Life, Sensorial, Language, Math and Science. The children are able to make independent choices in areas that are of greatest interest to them.



Don’t take our word for it…see what our parents say!

Amazing school!!! I enrolled my daughter when she was one year old and she loved it! The teacher is caring and loving. Big thank you to Ms. Sage and all the teachers! I love to see all the updates and photos of all the activities they do every day. The school just moved so everything is brand new and I am grateful to find this school! All the staff is great and knowledgeable. I see all the activities my daughter learned in school and she likes to do them at home. I see her concentration is getting better and better. This is really a loving and encouraging environment!

Highly recommended! The staff are so caring and provide a warm, friendly and educational atmosphere for the students. My kids have been going there for 3 years now and I cannot say enough great things.”

My 3 boys went to Bear Lake Montessori and you have no idea how great the school is. They have very very good teachers. We were with them for 3 years and was so sad to leave. We only left because we moved to CA. If you are looking for a great school with teacher who will love your kids… this is the place. You would have no idea but it is like finding a pot of gold!

I miss all the kids and teachers. They had thought me to be better each day! As a mom, I grew with this school too.”
