Winhold Montessori Schools of Palmetto Bay recently celebrated its 30th anniversary with an open house, art show, little farm animals, and a re-dedication ceremony attended by local dignitaries, community leaders, parents, students and the community.
The theme for the festivities included “Winhold Montessori Schools: Planting Seeds for the Future,” which underscores the commitment of Winhold Montessori Schools offering a foundation of knowledge, morals, and independence which prepares students for successful lives.
The event took place the morning of Feb. 28 for families with prospective students, the community and current families whose children attend Winhold. Administrators and staff were on hand to offer guided tours and information about the educational effectiveness of Montessori learning as well as the academic program offered at the school.
“The Open House and Art Show is a time for the community to visit our school to see what makes Winhold so unique and how talented our students are,” said Eleanor Winhold, founder and school administrator. “We take pride in the intricate and nurturing attention our staff provides towards the developmental process of each child.”
At the end of the Open House and Art Show, Winhold commemorated the 30th Anniversary with a community-wide celebration, balloon release and re-dedication ceremony. Palmetto Bay Mayor Shelly Stanczyk, Cutler Bay Vice Mayor Ernie Sochin, Palmetto Bay Village Councilmembers Patrick Fiore and Joan Lindsay, and Peter England, vice chair of the Economic Development Council, were all in attendance for the momentous occasion.
Founded in 1982, Winhold Montessori Schools is dedicated to the principles of authentic Montessori education. The school curriculum places a high priority on academics, while also addressing the whole child to a broader spectrum that includes French, Spanish and yoga, as well as art and music.
