"The most important period of life is not the age of university studies, but the first one, the period from birth to the age of six."
There is no need to wonder what to do with your child during the summer session. We offer a "funtastic" summer program, which includes water play days and interesting field trips.
Laguna Niguel Montessori provides Montessori education for children from the ages of 2 thru 7. Our school offers a challenging and enriched Montessori curriculum. Our goal at Laguna Niguel Montessori is to allow children the freedom to explore and develop a true love of learning, which they will keep with them long after leaving our school. Safety, warmth and nurturing, in addition to the Montessori philosophy, are priorities of the school.
Our facility offers parents and children alike, a sense of warmth and security in truly pleasant surroundings. The classrooms are large and well arranged to stimulate children's interests, while still being cozy and comfortable. Our playground area is a child's dream. It includes grass and sand areas and playground equipment to develop large motor skills.
We are proud to announce that Laguna Niguel Montessori was the first MSAC accredited Montessori school in Southern California.
The staff of any preschool program is the foundation of the school. We are proud of our staff and their dedication to the Montessori philosophy and the field of Early Childhood Education. In addition to their college education, all of our lead teachers at Laguna Niguel Montessori are Certified Montessori Teachers.
Through continuing education and in-service training, our staff stays abreast of current developments in the field and brings these fresh and innovative ideas to the classroom. Children are treated in a friendly, respectful manner. Because of the individual attention we give to children, we maintain a low student to staff ratio.
