About the school

Cattoira Montessori School (CMS), located in Kendall, offers full-time and part-time programs for children age 18 months through five years, as well as a full-day program for kindergartners. CMS also has an elementary school for first through sixth graders. The International Montessori Council-accredited facility serves the Miami community Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 5:00pm. The school was established in 2002 with a focus on “[educating] the whole child in a family-oriented environment.” Parents say CMS delivers on that vision by fostering a “positive” and “loving” setting in which children are given the tools and support needed to “reach their greatest potential.”

Educational philosophy and administration

Through its Montessori approach, CMS seeks to “[enhance] children’s natural learning process.” The curriculum for children age 18 months to three years focuses on practical life skills, vocabulary-building activities, sensory experiences, and math-related tasks. Parents praise the curriculum, saying it is “deeply in-tune [with] the way kids learn naturally” and that it “[strengthens] children’s love [of] learning” while supporting their “emotional and social development.” Director Lorena Cataoira-Naveira leads the staff at Cattoira Montessori. Parents say that Lorena and her staff have helped their children develop into “well-rounded” individuals who “love learning.” They emphasize the importance of the teachers’ “attentive” and “caring” approach in making the school a place that their kids “do not want to leave” at the end of the day. “[I] can’t begin to say how thankful my husband and I are that we found Cattoira Montessori,” says one mom. “This has not just been my children’s school for many years, but it has been their home away from home.”
