Grades: NS - PK | 25 students
At Montessori School Of Lefferts Garden Ii, Our multi-ethnic school is dedicated to the philosophy and methods that evolved with Dr. Maria Montessori's experiences of learning that began in 1907 in her original Casa dei Bambini. Our classroom experiences emphasize our teacher's role as facilitators who do not overpower the imagination and desire for creative exploration in our children. Montessori-trained head teachers allow learning to move along natural pathways which embrace the studentsí interests and natural curiosity in five broad fields of learning: practical life, sensorial, mathematics, language, and cultural. Upon graduation from LGM many of our children continue on to some of the best schools in Brooklyn: Packer Collegiate Institute, Brooklyn Friends School, Brooklyn Heights Montessori and Brooklyn magnet schools. Lefferts Gardens Montessori School welcomes students of any race, color, religion, national or ethnic origin. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies and other school-administered programs.
