Welcome to Montessori of Ladera Ranch
Thank you for your interest in our school. Established in November 2002, our mission is to follow the teachings and principals of Maria Montessori through well prepared environments that meet the needs and challenges of all children.
We strive for academic excellence through practical exercises in the areas of Language, Math, Geography, Science, Sensorial activities and Practical Life. We commit to instilling in the child a natural and ongoing curiosity toward the world around them and create a true love of learning that will stay with the child throughout life. We strive to promote social graciousness and caring for each other and the world around them. To meet the needs of each child’s individual spirit we allow them the freedom to explore, make mistakes, question and grow at a pace comfortable to the child. Our mission is to create a physical environment that allows a child to feel a sense of belonging, to feel safe and secure, to develop and strengthen their self-esteem. Finally, to hold firm to the words of Maria Montessori herself, “The education of the very young child does not prepare him for school, but for life.”
