"We shall walk together on this path of life, for all things are a part of the universe and are connected with each other to form one whole unity." 

Dr. Maria Montessori, "To Educate the Human Potential"



     We are a new private school serving Gainesville Fl and the surrounding area with a vision and heart for an authentic Montessori experience for all members of our learning community.  It is an opportunity for your family to be part of and contribute to the development of a new school that is committed to Montessori philosophy and best practices. The building is a small school house with the capacity for 100 students. It rests on a surrounding 4 acres with gardens and natural playscapes. 

     We are beginning the 2017/18 school year with primary ages 3-6, and lower elementary - grades 1, 2, & 3. Laniakea Montessori School will include upper elementary and middle school as we grow and expand each year.

     Lead teachers (Montessori Guides) and our faculty will have a keen understanding of cosmic education as it relates to both your child and the community we share together. Laniakea Montessori will integrate "systems thinking" into our mission and culture. The role of the guide will be to support your child and direct him/her to their higher purpose.  We nurture and encourage personal growth and transformation and ensure freedom and dialogue. Find our mission statement and philosophy here.
