About Our School

Miramelinda Montessori School is a dual-language immersion Toddler program (Spanish/English). We are part of the Wildflower Network of micro schools that promotes exploration, independence and healthy development for Toddlers age 12-33 months.

Our name comes from the miramelinda, a flower that grows all over Puerto Rico, the home of our founding Head of School, Lymichelle Rivera-Negron.
