The Montessori Advantage

The children of Lake County are blessed to have an advantage in their education many don’t have, and that is access to a Montessori School. What is Montessori? Montessori is a revolutionary method of observing and supporting the natural development of children in their education by helping them develop creativity, problem solving, critical thinking and time-management skills, care of the environment and each other, and prepares them to contribute to society and to become fulfilled persons. The basis of Montessori practice in the classroom is mixed age group (3 - 6 ages in one class), individual choice of research and work, and uninterrupted concentration. Group lessons are seldom found in a Montessori classroom, but learning abounds, and because it is enjoyed, children remember what they learn.

The City of Leesburg is a great community to raise children in and Lake Montessori is proud to be Leesburg’s only Montessori School, conveniently located on Lee Street near historic downtown. But our student body is not limited to Leesburg. All local area children are welcome at Lake Montessori. So whether you are in Fruitland Park, Lady Lake, Tavares, Eustis, Mount Dora or any of our surrounding communities, Lake Montessori is a wonderful place to have your children grow and learn!
