The academic year at Sweetbay is largely in alignment with that of the Walton County School District.
Sweetbay Montessori School originated when a group of Montessori families and teachers created a new home for an elementary program transitioning from another school. In response to local demand for more quality early childhood education options, the Children's House for ages 3-6 was added for the 2018 - 2019 school year.
We are committed to the Core Components of Montessori Education established by the American Montessori Society (AMS):
We are a Member School with AMS, and have embarked on the AMS Path of Continuous Improvement toward AMS Accreditation.
Sweetbay Magnolias (Magnolia virginiana) are cousins of southern magnolias and are found in several indigenous plant communities in Walton County, including the small copse of native trees in our play yard. They have beautiful white flowers with a vanilla scent and are distinguished by their bright red seed pods.

Our school is conveniently located between South Walton and Freeport off US 331 - just 7 minutes north of US 98 and 7 minutes from the center of Freeport.
Our natural play yard includes a lunch/work deck, sand play areas, organic gardens, and a copse of native trees. Outdoor work and play are an integral part of each school day.
Our schoolhouse has spacious classrooms filled with natural light. Shelves of Montessori work line the open concept spaces and invite the students to learn through exploration.
Cultivating independence, self-confidence, leadership, and innovative thinking in an authentic Montessori environment.
