Lone Oak, established in 1981 and accredited by the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) and the Maryland State Board of Education, has a staff of highly-trained teachers with a Master's degree or equivalent in Montessori Education.
The school believes that the Montessori program with its individualized approach to education allows children to reach their full potential at every stage.
The non-competitive, multi-age classrooms encourage children to help younger students and to see what is next as they progress.
Based on this approach, children have the ability to do advanced work in both mathematics and language from an early age and with the concrete materials to understand the concepts fully.
The protected work period helps children develop concentration and independence while also encouraging a sense of community as children navigate different activities with different children throughout their day.
Your child can participate fully in learning as a joyful process.
