Welcome to Our School

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.

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 26 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.

I invite you to come in and learn 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!

Here's what people have to say

5 out of 5 stars
School is great, teachers are great and we ara happy with the environment provided for our child.
Sugarloaf Monstessori has provided a generally positive experience not just for our daughter but for our entire family. We greatly appreciate how organized staff members are, the care they provide for our child and the cleanliness of the school. I look forward to enrolling our second child based on this experience. This is our family's first time learning about the Montessori way. We are impressed
with the changes we have seen in our daughter in just one month.

​Montessori Programs at Our School

Electives Offered

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:

Soccer, Music, Literacy

Make. Do. Tinker. Think.

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.

  • Science lab equipment will include items such as salt, vinegar, popsicle sticks, glue, clay, straws, etc., for children to perform simple experiments
  • Technology learning experiences will be highlighted by tablets and educational apps
  • Art studio activities will incorporate natural elements (such as leaves) and will feature various modes of art; for example, pendulum painting

Ask the school director for additional details.
