We are frequently asked about early childhood programs and recommendations for child care, preschools, and schools in Miami. Choosing a school or child care center that fits your child’s and your family’s needs can be an overwhelming task.

Miami Moms Blog is thrilled to provide this resource guide, brought to you by our many sponsors! Thank you to those featured in this guide.


Bottega Child Development Center is a unique progressive preschool founded with a Mission to offer the child a place where their “Rights,” are respected, and the child is seen as a “Citizen,” of today’s society. Our Vision is to provide children, parents, and community with a preschool that fosters independent thinkers, and helps them construct understandings that form a solid foundation to excel in their education and in life. Guided by our core values and principles: Joy, Mindfulness, Relationships, Communication, and Research, Bottega designed an individualized approach that offers a Dual Language Program, and an Emergent Curriculum following the Reggio Emilia Approach of Education, and using the Thinking for Understanding Framework developed by Harvard University's renowned "Project Zero." Our facility was given special attention to detail so it provides children and their families a nurturing, secure, and stimulating environment. Our goal is to set the foundation for our students to succeed in the 21st Century.

For over five decades, Alexander Montessori School has served children, ages 18 months to 12 years, by providing an unrivaled educational experience. The full-day and half-day educational programs are uniquely designed to foster a love of learning, earning AMS a reputation as a place where the Teachers and Staff truly care about their students. The child-centered Montessori philosophy provides a learning environment unlike other private schools and traditional public education for Toddlers, Preschoolers, and Elementary students.

At AMS, classrooms and curricula are tailored to a child’s learning and growth. Rather than imparting knowledge, the primary purpose of the Montessori Method is developing children intellectually and socially to be independent thinkers and self-directed leaders. Teachers follow the child’s lead, allowing learning to take its own path and pace, which often outpaces traditional education. We invite you to explore AMS and discover how our dynamic environment helps children “Learn to Love to Learn.” Graduates of AMS consistently go on to gain acceptance to the most respected college preparatory schools. We have four campuses to serve you, including our Palmetto Bay Campus for ages 18 months – 6 years (17800 Old Cutler Road), our Old Cutler Road Campus for ages 2-6 years (14400 Old Cutler Road), our Red Road Campus for ages 3-6 years (6050 SW 57th Avenue), and our Ludlam Road Campus for ages 6-12/Grades 1-5 (14850 SW 67th Avenue).

At KBPS we believe that children learn best when they are offered learning opportunities based on their own interests and developmental level. Students at KBPS are exposed to: Academic Readiness, Language and Literacy, Critical Thinking, Social Relations, Initiative, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Creativity, Music, Art and Movement.  All these activities are nurtured in a loving environment. Teachers ask students open ended questions and promote conversations to foster our early learners’ growth and language development both in English and in Spanish.

With more than 30,000 square feet of outdoor bayfront property, Key Biscayne Presbyterian School is the primary leader in Outdoor Education on Key Biscayne. Nestled next to Biscayne Bay and neighboring the Key Biscayne Yacht Club, our facility and Outdoor Classroom provide an opportunity for outdoor exploration and hands-on education. Our Outdoor Classroom is a place were students are engaged with the wonders of creation — how plants and animals interact in an ecosystem and how we, as stewards of the planet, should take care of the land and the sea.
