Welcome to West Glades Montessori School in Boca Raton, FL. My name is Wendy and I am the director. Our school offers Montessori-certified teachers and a true Montessori experience following Dr. Maria Montessori's method and philosophy. All of our lead teachers have an AMI or AMS Montessori certificate.
We have been open for over 32 years and not only provide an authentic Montessori curriculum, but the best child care/daycare in the community. I have been here at West Glades Montessori since day one. We encourage family participation and invite you to observe your child during class.
In addition to our Montessori curriculum, we also offer an after-school program that includes Amazing Athletes, Cooking, Art and Spanish. Our school provides a high quality education that gives your child a true Montessori experience!
West Glades Montessori School is very health conscience. We screen everyone who enters the building. Temperatures are taken upon arrival and monitored during the day for children and staff. Our staff must wear masks and children's mask wearing is optional. We sanitize classrooms and the building several times a day and our three part cleaning system eliminates bacteria.
Parents and visitors will be restricted to the common areas only. Hand washing is done upon arrival to school and before and after playground, lunch time or entering a new classroom.
We remain committed to providing a safe, secure and healthy environment for your child when they are at school. We are closely following CDC guidelines as well as state and local officials and health authorities.
Another great feature we have is live streaming. We have a program coming soon called WatchMeGrow. You will be able to observe your child at school from your phone or iPad or computer.
We invite you to schedule a visit so you can see all we have to offer your family.
Are you concerned about the impact of COVID on your child’s education? You’re not alone. Now, more than ever, early education matters. We’re here to help.
Starting at the front door, our already robust health and safety procedures have been enhanced to ensure a clean, welcoming school environment. The well-being of your child is our top priority, now, and always.

Art, Fitness, Yoga, Spanish

I have been at West Glades Montessori School for 32 years and have been the director for the last 10. The experiences I have had working here have been amazing and fascinating. It is a true delight to observe children and watch how their minds work and grow.

As a Montessori alumna, I have enjoyed both learning from and teaching Maria Montessori’s philosophy. In addition to being the assistant director, I also often help in the classroom when needed as well as run two after-school art programs for students ages 4-9.
