Lansdowne Montessori School (Closed 2022)
The Lansdowne Montessori School was established in 1980 by Donna Boswell.
Donna received her degree from Hood College and her Montessori training from The London Montessori Center in London, England.
She has over 30 years experience as a teacher, director, and owner.
Our mission in education is to promote learning through a spirit of cooperation and mutual respect in a non-competitive atmosphere as we advance each child to self-reliance and independence.
In doing so, we are fulfilling Dr. Montessori's philosophy of education: that each child is what the unseen adult will become.
