School Notes

  • ABOUT LAKE MONTESSORI
  • WHAT MAKES US UNIQUE?
  • As the only Montessori school in Leesburg, our programs, size, facilities, location, and most importantly of all, people set us apart from the rest.The Montessori philosophy is founded upon a recognition that children have an innate desire to learn. Maria Montessori designed integrated materials that direct a child`s learning in a form as close to natural learning as possible. These materials allow children to experience each concept in a concrete manner and to work gradually to abstract understanding.This learning takes place in an environment that develops disciplined independence, intellectual curiosity, self-esteem, and logical thinking.Our goal is to use the Montessori methods, a carefully-prepared environment, and the best teachers to help students develop positive attitudes and behavior necessary to create the characteristics of successful learners, responsible individuals, and effective citizens.
