About the school

Gables Montessori School offers programs for children age 18 months through six years. The school also offers before-care and after-care and is open from 7:00 am to 6:30 pm. Gables Montessori started serving the Coral Gables community in 2006. Gables separates its programs into two age groups: one for children age 18 months to three years and one for children age three to six. Both pro-grams are bilingual in English and Spanish. Students can also learn Mandarin (Chinese). Gables aims to provide a safe, loving and scholarly environment where their students can flourish and become future leaders. Parents say it’s more than just a school, describing Gables as “family.”

Educational philosophy and administration

Gables Montessori uses the Montessori Curriculum, which follows an “education philosophy and practice that fosters rigorous, self-motivated growth for children in all areas of their develop-ment, with a goal of nurturing each child’s natural desire for knowledge, understanding, and re-spect.” Gables does this by filling its program with phonics-based language, vocabulary training, math, science, sensorial training, geography, cultural studies, gardening, art, music and move-ment. The staff strives to teach abstract concepts in concrete ways, helping develop the children’s problem-solving and critical thinking skills.

I recommend this school to anyone who is searching for an authentic Montessori school with lov-ing teachers in a home-like environment.” Director Maderline Cabrera leads the staff at Gables Montessori. One mother describes her as “an amazing woman who loves on all of her students as if they were her own kids and ALL her staff (which are superb too) have learned from her first-hand example to love on your kids as well.” Maderline enjoys what she does, saying “Everyday I wake up, I’m given the opportunity to work in a place where the honesty and innocence of these children gives me light. I believe I am also giving back to them.”
