Description:

Montessori Education is child centered. Montessori teachers study their students, listen for questions that children most urgently ask, and discover the learning activities that motivate the children in their classroom. Montessori fosters independence and self-discipline, which helps children grow into autonomous and self-confident individuals. Young children learn to take care of themselves and their environment and to choose work independently. As they grow older, they learn to manage their time and focus on projects that they design.Montessori builds a strong foundation on conceptual understanding. LMS children work with carefully designed materials which become increasingly abstract as they move through the elementary years. They develop a firm understanding of concepts at a concrete level, and later build on those concepts as they mature into abstract thought.

Montessori cultivates respect and compassion. LMS teachers share a commitment to multicultural, anti-bias education. Our teachers encourage cooperative work and teach conflict resolution skills. Our children learn to identify and challenge bias, and to see themselves as part of the rich fabric of society.

Montessori inspires curious, lifelong learners. LMS encourages children to bring their curiosity to school. Whether they are inspired to learn to tie their shoes or learn about reptile behavior, LMS students receive encouragement for exploration, along with the skills they need to become independent in their learning.
