Help Our Montessori Community Grow!

Our beloved Nos Fortalesa Montessori School located in Aruba just started its 7th school year in August of 2020. This school started as a dream to offer the Montessori Method of Education to local children and children of expats. We are a very small non-profit independent school, and have currently a total of 60 students (divided in 3 groups) between the ages of 3 and 12 years old.

Our mission is to guide the intellectual and character development of each child along a path towards his or her full and unknown potential.


For our 8th school year we have found there is a need for expanding our school. There is a lot of interest in our school and in this beautiful Method of Education. At our current location we do not have room for more students. That’s why we would love to expand our school. We really feel passionate about helping as many children as possible. It is very important for us to follow the child, and see the child learn and grow at his or her own pace. Our goal is surely to give the Aruban community another alternative type of Education. 

As per August 2021, we will open another Primary and Elementary Montessori school. The plan is to start with about 15 students between the ages of 4 and 8 and grow with them until they are about 12 years old (grade 6). We will continue to offer a warm environment that feels like family, a home, a place where children can develop a lifelong passion for learning. To make this dream come true, we kindly ask you for your help!

We are seeking to raise 10,000 dollars, this will help keep our start up costs low and therefore our tuition fee. It would be wonderful if you can help us with this wonderful cause. Our goal is to raise this amount by March 18th of 2021.

This covers all subjects for the first year. These subjects are Mathematics, Language Arts, Geography, Botany, Astronomy, History, Zoology.

Every donation matters, no matter how small or big. Together, we can make the future strong and beautiful for our children in our community.

We thank you in advance for your great investment in our children, and therefore in all of us. For as Maria Montessori once said: “Within the child lies the fate of the future.”
