Lake Murray Montessori School

Lake Murray Montessori School is a community of children, teachers, and parents who have come together to provide education for life.
Our goal is to ensure that every child at Lake Murray Montessori School is nurtured emotionally, academically, socially and physically.
We believe that all children are gifted. Our job is to nourish and channel their natural love of learning and facilitate their development as whole, unique individuals who respect and value themselves and others.
We at Lake Murray view education not merely as the passing on of knowledge rather as an aid to life.

My son studied there. So happy he was there, he learnt and had so many good memories. Great team, if I`d have more kids can`t hesitate to enroll them.
