Every day at Village Montessori, we are fortunate to guide children who are engaged in joyful and meaningful work. As Dr. Maria Montessori said, “The education of even a small child does not aim at preparing him for school but for life,” and at Village Montessori we embrace this sentiment as a core value.

Our nurturing and competent team of educators are eager to cultivate a love of learning in your child from their toddler through elementary years utilizing the Whole Child Approach, which includes the 5 Planes of Developmental: cognitive, social, emotional, physical and spiritual.
We respect all children and families and believe in Montessori’s strong sense of inclusiveness. Our school is free of prejudice and our staff and student body is diverse. Today, more than ever, we strive to partner with all stakeholders to develop in our students a deep sense of empathy, compassion and respect for their classmates, teachers, community, and world.

During these formative years of your child’s life, our community provides support, friendship and guidance in accordance with Maria Montessori’s foundation of respect and peace.
For the past ten years, we have had the privilege of working with hundreds of children and their families. It has been a joyful and defining part of our lives and one we hope to share with you and your child.

Please schedule a visit to see how Village Montessori has created a unique inclusive environment in Grand Cayman and how we have established an amazing educational environment.

We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you as part of the VM family.

With Grace and Courtesy,

Our Mission Statement

Our Mission is to foster a strong sense of community and respect for self, others, and the environment in an inclusive and nurturing setting. We aim to provide the children with an opportunity to develop independence in a creative, educational environment and foster a lifelong love of learning.

Our Goal

Our Goal at Village Montessori is to assist children in developing the skills, knowledge, and attitudes to become productive members of their community. Our environment fosters children to be respectful of themselves, others, and their surroundings. We have created an enriched learning environment and employ certified teachers who want to work collaboratively with parents to achieve this.

Our History

The owners of Village Montessori spent over six years evaluating the market and researching best practices in early childhood development, early childhood curriculums as well as local legal requirements and children’s enrichment and entertainment before opening their doors. Village Montessori and Starfish Village have an in-depth understanding of the island, parent expectations, children needs and target market. The owners, leadership and staff bring over twenty years of early childhood educational experience and over twenty years of operational and senior management expertise to the school.

Village Montessori is a fully licensed private school, prides itself on being a unique and innovative environment where we believe in inclusion, culture, respect and a sense of community. Starfish Village started out as a children’s enrichment centre, a pre-school and start up Montessori in September 2014 with 16 children. In the past five years we have grown to a student body of over 85, expanding to offer a Toddler (18 months to 3 years), Casa (ages 3-6 years old) and Lower Elementary Programme (ages 6-9 years old) and this year the first Upper Elementary class ( ages 9-12).

Education is not something which the teacher does, but a natural process that develops spontaneously in the human being.

~ Dr. Maria Montessori

School Facilities

Village Montessori school takes great pride in providing a stimulating and carefully designed environment that complements its unique educational philosophy. Our facilities are thoughtfully crafted to facilitate the Montessori method’s principles of independence, exploration, and hands-on learning.
Our classrooms are spacious and well-organized, with a diverse array of Montessori materials that cater to various age groups. These materials are carefully selected to engage students in concrete, hands-on experiences that promote understanding and mastery of concepts in subjects ranging from math and language to practical life skills.

Natural light floods into our classrooms, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere for learning. The furniture is child-sized and ergonomic, encouraging students to be independent and take responsibility for their space.

In addition to well-equipped classrooms, Village Montessori school boasts outdoor spaces designed to inspire curiosity and a connection to nature. These outdoor environments provide opportunities for physical activity, gardening, and exploration, aligning with Maria Montessori’s belief in the importance of the outdoor world in a child’s education.

At Village Montessori school we also place a strong emphasis on creating a peaceful and respectful atmosphere. Each classroom has a dedicated space for quiet reflection and concentration, promoting mindfulness and emotional well-being.

Overall, our Montessori school facilities are a testament to our commitment to providing a nurturing, holistic, and child-centered learning environment that aligns with the Montessori philosophy, enabling each child to reach their fullest potential.

I have been a parent at Village Montessori for 5 years. The school provides a positive attitude to learning and development which builds confidence, the progress in my children has been amazing to watch.

The teachers are compassionate, patient and encouraging. When I send my kids to school each morning I know they are safe and happy.

~ Jillian Lagan

My two children are in their third year at Village Montessori. I can say with certainty that they have developed confidence and independence due to the Montessori environment.

The teachers and staff are highly trained and experienced and have a wonderful commitment to the children. Village Montessori provides a secure and welcoming environment that engages all learning types. My children are both very different academically and each thrives in their own unique way in this environment. The school has created such a stimulating, fun and loving environment that has laid the foundation for the next stage in their education. I would highly recommend Village Montessori as a nurturing place to prepare children for school and life ahead.

As parents whose child has been attending Village Montessori since its inception, we cannot speak highly enough of the exceptional educational experience provided by all the teachers and support staff our daughter has had over the years.

The Montessori approach embraced by Village Montessori is nothing short of transformative. It fosters independence, creativity, and a genuine love for learning in every child fortunate enough to be a part of their community. The emphasis on hands-on, experiential learning has allowed our daughter to not only excel academically but also develop crucial life skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving, and collaboration.


What truly sets Village Montessori apart is its dedicated and passionate team of educators. They are not simply teachers but mentors who genuinely care about the holistic development of each child under their guidance. Their commitment to creating a nurturing and inclusive environment where every child feels valued and supported is truly commendable.


Furthermore, the school’s dedication to providing a well-rounded education is evident in its diverse range of extracurricular activities and enrichment programs. Whether it’s through art, music, sports, or community service initiatives, Village Montessori ensures that every child has the opportunity to explore their interests and talents beyond the traditional classroom setting.


In summary, Village Montessori has exceeded all our expectations as parents. It has not only equipped our daughter with the academic foundation she needs to succeed but has also instilled in her a lifelong love for learning and a sense of confidence in her abilities. We are immensely grateful to the entire Village Montessori team for their unwavering dedication and commitment to shaping the future leaders of tomorrow.
