A child’s work wrote Maria Montessori is to create the man he will become. An adult works to perfect his environment but a child works to perfect himself. So Dr. Montessori developed an education that would aid the child in his work.
The Montessori Method is based on the childs tendencies to explore be independent and make decisions develop self-control abstract ideas from experience be creative and imaginative repeat for internalization concentrate and perfect and master concepts and ideas.
Montessori classes are organized into groups representing a three-year age span. Within each group there is constant interaction problem solving child-to-child teaching and socialization.
The environment is arranged according to subject area and children are free to move around the room and to work on a piece of material as long as needed. It is the role of the teacher to prepare and adapt the environment. The teacher links the child to the environment with well-planned lessons.
Children learn directly from the environment other children and from the teacher. The teacher works with children one-on-one in small groups and less frequently in large group settings.
All subjects are interwoven. At any given time all subjectsmath language science history geography art music etc.are being studied at all levels. Children are exposed to amazing amounts of knowledge.

LUMS is an excellent program for preschool and kindergarten. I couldn't be happier with the progress my son has made. LUMS is a preschool, not a daycare.

Shelly Braun

Fantastic School!!

Diane Kemper

Great school! The director truly cares about son has benefitted greatly from the academic and social skills taught the "Montessori" way. Send your children here as soon as you are able. You will see the difference immediately. We are firm believers that every child learns in their own way, Montessori helps them figure out which way is "their" way. We LOVE Ms. Walji And her staff.

My son attended LUMS for two years and it's a great school! The teachers and staff are caring, nurturing and attentive to the needs of each child. The self-paced curriculum is advanced and challenges each child on an individual level. We love LUMS and wish that the classes went beyond Kindergarten...all the way through high school would be great! :)
