Shadycreek Preschool

Mission Statement

At Shadycreek, we believe in the value and uniqueness of each child we serve. Our childcare experience is designed to promote each child’s own individual social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development.

As caregivers and educators, our mission is to provide a safe and developmentally appropriate learning environment, which fosters a child’s natural desire to explore, discover, create, and become a lifelong learner.


A Pinellas county tradition – on Belleair Road in Clearwater, Shadycreek Preschool has been nurturing preschool-aged children since 1982. It has become a tradition for families from our surrounding area. And family is part of the Shadycreek tradition.

Consistency and tradition are key ingredients to student success at Shadycreek. The rich history of Montessori education is interwoven into the daily activities provided by experienced, trained and dedicated teachers at this licensed and Accredited facility.

The American Montessori Society tells us that children between ages 3 to 6 possess an innate and extraordinary capacity to absorb information and those children who have been educated using {Montessori} techniques grow into competent learners who know how to learn, and love learning.
