About Lakewood Montessori

Lakewood Montessori School is designed to give your child every educational advantage and to meet the individual needs of your child—intellectually, physically, emotionally and socially.

Montessori education—as unique as your child—starts with a hands on environment where there are no limits to learning, adventure, discovery,
accomplishment and knowledge.

Lakewood’s prepared learning environment is over flowing with unique learning materials—everything from math and science to language and culture—each designed to propel your child into the fascinating world of learning.

Lakewood is a family and a home away from home. Children feel respected, loved and safe.

“Education is not the filling of a pail. It is the lighting of a fire.”
–W.B. Yeats

Our Mission

Our mission is to nurture children in a child-centered setting that fosters the growth of confident, caring and successful students. Academics are introduced through Dr. Montessori’s didactic materials, which lay the groundwork for abstract thinking and the development of early readers. Lakewood Montessori students learn how to think, how to read, how to learn.

What Sets Us Apart

Our preschoolers are reading! Our Kindergarten students have an average reading score in the top one percentile in the nation, among students entering the First grade.

Three Interesting Tidbits

Lakewood Montessori School is a great place to work! The average tenure of our Certified Montessori teachers is over 12 years. It is our philosophy that we must first be a great place to work; then we become a great place to attend school.

We tend to develop lifelong relationships. Many of our alumni return to work at Lakewood Montessori. Today, we have students attending the school with parents that grew up here as well!

Our alumni are successful. Take a look around area schools and you will find that we are very well represented in the National Honor Society and Science Fairs. We absolutely dominate the Spelling Bee circuit!
