Welcome to Firelands Montessori Academy!

The original Montessori Schools were called “Children’s Houses,” and we are fortunate that our school is housed in a space that allows for us to emulate this tradition. The light-filled classrooms contain furnishings that are natural and cozy, and the wooden shelves are replete with an expansive collection of Montessori materials. The teachers work hard to prepare beautiful, welcoming classroom environments that bring out the best in children and encourage them to work at their highest possible level. Montessori allows for children to achieve differentiated, individuated learning, and a great deal of this is due to the careful organization of the classroom and materials. The teachers work as guides to facilitate children’s learning in these unique classroom environments.

FMA has provided an authentic Montessori Education for children in Northwest Ohio for 37 years. We currently serve 111 children ages 2-13. Please get in touch with our office at 419-433-6181 to learn about how you may join our thriving community.

The greatest sign of success for a teacher… is to be able to say, ’The children are now working as if I did not exist.’— Maria Montessori
