Lexington Montessori School's Full Profile
Lexington Montessori School says
The Lexington Montessori School community works to create an environment that inspires children to develop inner discipline, self-assurance, and a love of learning. We respect the uniqueness of each student by helping each child to develop skills at periods of greatest readiness and sensitivity. Education at LMS is based on the theories and work of Maria Montessori. This child-centered approach views the primary task of education as allowing children to discover knowledge--and ultimately, themselves--by engaging in meaningful, self-directed activity in a stimulating and nurturing atmosphere. The aim is to help children grow socially, emotionally, cognitively, aesthetically, and physically while also developing self-awareness and an understanding of themselves as members of the world community. We view children as active participants in their learning. Children discover for themselves how to use their intellects and temperaments, how to see and understand and remember. By working to master the carefully prepared classroom environment--both individually and in concert with other students--the children develop the concentration, self-confidence, independence, and self-discipline that will enable them to become life-long learners and problem solvers.
Curriculum varies by level. Please visit "Curriculum and Programs" on our website at www.lemontessori.org for more information.

Our program provides a creative, adaptive environment that responds to the needs of the children. We seek to balance academic and social development to foster responsibility and cooperation within a supportive learning community.
Our students learn to view themselves as contributing members of a diverse global community. We respect and value differences, and look with an open mind at all members of the community, seeking to understand and value them for who they are. The staff, the parents and the children communicate clearly and openly and treat each other with honesty and mutual respect.
