"Joy, feeling one's own value, being appreciated and loved by others, feeling useful and capable of production are all factors of enormous value for the human soul. "

- Maria Montessori

"Explore, Play, Grow"

Children between the ages of 3-5 can enroll into our regular preschool program.  The LMP program engages students both inside and outside of the classroom. We have outdoor time in the garden and with our chickens, as well as plenty of time to explore indoors through art, stories, songs, dramatic play, games, and a playful and fun introduction to letters and numbers.  Our multi-age classroom allows the younger children to be guided by their older peers and the older children to build skills and confidence by helping others. Our program runs Monday-Thursday 9am-1pm. Families can choose either a two or four day schedule based on a child’s readiness for school and the needs of the family.
