Expanding our education beyond a traditional classroom
More than just a basic education
The Montessori Learning Center of Fort Walton Beach is proud of our enrichment activities. We have a great history of inviting local groups to come and educate our children on anything from music to law enforcement.
Our visual art program is thriving under the direction of Ms. Bethany Baldwin. We are a school that doesn’t just do crafts; but teaches color theory, drawing, painting, and perspective. Ms. Bethany spearheads a plastic bottle cap drive each year. She and the children create a piece of upcycled fine art for display at our school, or to be auctioned off as a fundraiser. By making these pieces of art with otherwise discarded materials, we help fuel our vision statement of creating positive stewards of our community.
In addition to our art program, we also offer Music. .Marlayna Goolsby, the founder of Grow your Gift Conservatory of Music, travels weekly to our school to provide prek - 3rd grade music lessons. Each year our school puts on a performance to showcase their skills.
"Grow Your Gift Conservatory of Music is the only music school dedicated to music performance in the Fort Walton Beach area. We equip our students to build confidence in their academic and social lives. Our goal is for you: no matter what level of experience you’re playing at, we’re here to grow together as musicians! Marlayna Goolsby, the founder of Grow your gift, travels weekly to our school to provide Pre-K - 3rd Grade music lessons. Each year our school puts on a performance to showcase their skills." -Marlayna Goolsby
The Montessori Learning Center has a dedicated parent enrichment committee that is constantly looking for scientists, artists, musicians and more to come in and give presentations to our students. Please contact the school if you are interested or have ideas for our program!
“The greatest gifts we can give our children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence.”
