Learning the Montessori way feels more like play than work to young children.
Since children have a natural drive and curiosity to master their own bodies and environment, Dr. Montessori used the term "work" to describe the effort that the children put toward this out of respect for them.
The Montessori materials and classroom activities, which are specifically designed to foster the development of the whole child, are hands-on, engaging, and fun for the child to work on.
At Lakewood Montessori, we also provide plenty of time for outdoor learning and unstructured outdoor activity, which gives children the opportunity to connect with nature.

I am so grateful for Lakewood Montessori. Everything about this place is top notch, from the owner and the directors to the teachers. The curriculum is intentional and high-quality, and my children just thrive there. My daughter attended for four years, loved going to school, and recently started kindergarten SO prepared for the public school system. She is excelling in both reading and math and I believe she couldn't have been better prepared! My twin sons began as infants and have been loved and nurtured since Day One. I've had experience at two other day cares, neither of which gave such personal attention to the kids and their environment (or to the parents). I cannot say enough about how happy I've been to leave my kids in the care of Lakewood Montessori each day. This school has truly been a blessing for us and our family. All of our children have blossomed into a very independent little people over the years thanks to the philosophies of the Montessori Method. The teachers are always very attentive and caring and was always going the extra mile to make sure that we were addressing any issue or concern as they presented. We are forever grateful for Lakewood Montessori and we feel eternally indebted to them for the service they have provided.

We love Lakewood Montessori! The staff and the teachers are amazing! When I tell people in conversation, my kids go to Lakewood, I always hear what a great reputation it has in our community and that makes me such a proud momma! We really truly couldn't ask for a better school and better teachers to love, guide, and teach our children every single day. What a wonderful family environment that I truly believe is second to none. Go Lakewood Montessori!
