De La Fontaine Trilingual Montessori School was proud to open in January 2019 to offer your children an accredited education, based on the development of each child’s empowerment and independence.
DLF Trilingual Montessori School is the only trilingual (English, French and Spanish) full immersion Montessori School in Tampa Bay. We are excited to offer your children an exceptional educational adventure in a positive, safe, respectful and motivating multicultural environment.
De La Fontaine Trilingual Montessori School is deeply rooted in the Maria Montessori’s philosophy and values. We believe that every child is unique and must be respected as a fully-fledged individual. Each child must be placed in a learning environment that provides them fun while learning to reach their full intellectual, social, emotional, cultural and academic potential. Therefore, we offer spacious, pleasant and full equipped classrooms according to the authentic Montessori pedagogy in which teachers are considered as guides.
Maria Montessori said, “Let’s not raise our children for today’s world. This world will not exist when they grow up; and nothing allows us to know which world will be theirs: so let them learn to adapt.”
At De La Fontaine Trilingual Montessori School, this adaptation includes the discovery of cultures and languages to help the child be open-minded, to make him aware of each individual’s richness while highlighting the principles of tolerance, respect and knowing how to be and live together.
De La Fontaine Trilingual Montessori School is the perfect place to learn respect: self- respect, respect for others, but also respect for our environment. We place great importance on the Nature and encourage experiences to connect the children by feeling, touching, observing, listening to the treasures of nature … to better understand and respect it.
We believe in our role as Peace educator by working together with parents and children to co-build a united and respectful community in which our daily goal is the full development of the child. In our school, we consider that parents play a leading role and we want to value and foster this collaboration.
De La Fontaine Trilingual Montessori School is a school where our Montessori educators and directors are actively involved and passionate about helping children become the teenager, adult, leader, innovator and entrepreneur of the future.
Thank you for your trust and rest assured that your child’s development is our daily work.
