Welcome to Sugarloaf Montessori School in Duluth, GA. We were established in 1999 and are committed to the principles and philosophies of the Montessori Method. In addition to our authentic Montessori curriculum, we provide superior child care/daycare to the local community.
My name is Michelle Whaley. As the director of Sugarloaf Montessori School, I am proud to say that we are highly respected in the Duluth area. I started my Montessori journey 29 years ago and joined this school in 2004.
We strongly encourage parent participation and host family events throughout the year. This school is very much a second home for everyone. The children have a sense of belonging and purpose and are respected and loved.
We’re committed to providing simple ways to keep you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. With live streaming video, you can view your child’s classroom from any device or computer. Plus, get real-time updates with our family communication app.
We closely follow recommendations from state and local authorities, to maintain a clean, safe, healthy environment.
I invite you to schedule a tour and learn more about Montessori and how it can benefit your child. The best time to tour is between 9-11 a.m. so you can see the classroom community in full swing. I look forward to seeing you soon!
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.
Elective programs allow Montessori students to learn by exploring creative outlets that will help them advance in the future—while giving your family more free time on evenings and weekends. We offer:
Our authentic Montessori experience is enhanced by a STEAM Studio.
Featuring hands-on learning stations for Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Math, the studio is available to Primary program students at least once a week.
Ask the school director for additional details.
