Leport Montessori School

Leport Montessori School Photo #1 - Highly qualified teachers (bachelor's degrees + year-long AMI Montessori training) * Multi-age, family-like classroom communities * 3 years with one teacher = strong relationships and trust * A scientifically designed preschool curriculum * Beautifully prepared environments * Uninterrupted, child-let time to explore
Leport Montessori School Photo #2 - Maria Montessori's vision of a "Nido" or nest; they are peaceful, loving places where babies can explore and feel secure. Teachers speak in gentle tones, the daily pace is unhurried, and décor is understated and homelike. Each child in our care is an individual to be nurtured with affection and respect.
Leport Montessori School Photo #3 - Infant Rooms; Each Infant environment has a maximum of 12 infants and 4 adults (a 3:1 ratio), one of whom is the Room Leader. Though the California Community Care Licensing allows a 4:1 ratio for infants, we realize that a 3:1 ratio is better for your child because it allows for more individual attention.
Leport Montessori School Photo #4 - Infant Rooms; Quiet spaces where children can enjoy books and being read to.
Leport Montessori School Photo #5 - The Primary Classroom; From the child-sized furniture, to the self-correcting materials; from the child's ability to choose his work, to his choice of mats or table and work partners; from the plants and animals in the classroom, to the type of teachers we hire and their comportment: everything is tailored to help the child choose to learn and to concentrate on productive work and personal development.
Leport Montessori School Photo #6 - Sensorial; The Montessori Sensorial Exercises are designed to build on this insight. They enable the preschool child to develop the capacity to be active-minded, to sustain concentration over long periods of time, and to exercise sharp powers of observation.
Leport Montessori School Photo #7 - LePort Montessori preschool offers an authentic Montessori program for children ages 3 – 6 years (preschool & kindergarten), at seven convenient locations in Southern California.
Leport Montessori School Photo #8 - Outdoor play time is enjoyed in designated play areas separate for toddler and primary age groups. From climbing structures to bikes and sandboxes, there are many outdoor play features for children to enjoy.
Leport Montessori School Photo #9 - Language; A typical LePort Kindergarten student can read real books (not just sound out phonetic 3-letter-words), and pen full sentences in cursive handwriting (not just form a few print capital letters or trace his name.)
Leport Montessori School Photo #10 - Montessori preschool children learn more and grow into mature, socially skilled young people. They are more than prepared for elementary school!
  • Montessori child care: Infant, Toddler, Preschool and Kindergarten programs for children 3 months to 6 years old in a beautiful, nurturing environment.
  • Life skills, social development, and reading, writing and arithmetic starting in preschool.
