SLMS is the only AMI certified school in Clermont. Jan Sheldon is so patient and really teaches the children true Montessori style.The other Montessori school in Clermont, Land of Lakes Montessori isn't a true Montessori and aren't AMI recognized/certified. My preK child has been enrolled in both, and the difference is night and day! I highly recommend SLMS. My son loves it there. Everyday he came home from LLMS, he was angry and frustrated because the staff wasn't trained to deal properly with children who were not cookie cutter models. Every single day we were met at the door by the head mistress complaining about his behavior. Since he started SLMS, he has been a different and happier child. He comes home happy! He has learned so much. His behavior is 100% improved. No complaints from Jan. We love SLMS!

The best decision we ever made was enrolling our son in this school he has been there since he was 3 and is kidergarden age this year. He loves school and has learned more in the past two years than most schools teach by the 5th grade. We love SLMS!

This school has been the best! My daughter has been there since she was 2 1/2. The director has such a wonderful way with children. It is truly a gift to be able to have my daughter at school here. I have seen her grow socially, emotionally and mentally. All the staff are very supportive and available to the parents. This program really guides the kids to be independent, responsible, self thinkers who care about each other. All the students help each other and cooperate.
