Our Children's House students become engrossed in their work as they explore with their friends the connections between objects and ideas.
 
Maria Montessori called early childhood a "period of absorbency." As young children make sense of their world, they absorb vast amounts of vocabulary as well as the coding systems for both language and mathematics. They imitate the behaviors and values of their carefully practiced teachers. 
 
Our classrooms surround children with language experiences. Our balanced literacy program follows children’s natural paths as it builds a solid foundation for reading and writing. Young children at LMS develop their mathematical skills and aptitudes as they learn to categorize and order an intriguing variety of objects. Children explore relationships among specially designed sensorial materials, and they use Montessori math beads to see and feel concepts of numeration. 
 
LMS Children’s House classes are conscious communities where children practice the arts of grace, courtesy and authentic communication. They learn to control themselves in group situations, and they learn to use conflict resolution skills to stand up for themselves and what they believe.
