Irvine Lake Parents Rave About Us!
We’ve been enrolled in this school for a little over a year now and have had our child in the preprimary and primary classes. If we have any complaints about this school, it’s that it’s *extremely* difficult if you’re a two-working-parent family. With all the closures, events, and parent education nights, you miss lots of work. We make it work bc we believe in the Montessori method, and that it takes more of a commitment than regular childcare. The HIGH annual fees ($450 compared to an average of $100 at other schools in the area) and required annual deposit equal to one month’s tuition…it’s rough, we almost can’t keep it up. The teachers are AMAZING. And that’s why we’re here. That’s the holy grail. It does drive us crazy to have no idea what our child does all day unless we go out of our way to call or email. You don’t go in the classroom or talk w/ the teacher on a daily basis. That’s hard when you have a little one. This isn’t the school for you if you want a daily report or have trouble getting time off work. If you can swing it, your child will flourish here. You may not, but your child absolutely will! And they will be loved! At the end of the day, that’s what matters. LePort Parent, from GreatSchools.org
We enrolled our 4 year old Daughter in the Lake campus of Le Port Montesorri because we wanted a more academic and stimulating environment…Although our child initially had a difficult time adjusting to the new teacher and classroom, the management along with Ms Andrea Diaz quickly identified the problem..and made a switch in teachers..and we literally saw a total transformation in our child..Under the guidance and care of Ms Diaz & Ms Kang..our daughter became actively involved in the classroom activities and develop both intellectually and behaviorally..Their daily academic task are excellent and really help the children to learn and advance at their own level..Their attention to social skills and the importance of discipline is clearly noticeable and has had a great impact on our child..At the end of the school year (pre -K)which for us was only 8 months, Our child is now reading books entirely on her own.and she is only 5..But most important was the overall level of individual attention the teacher and management give each child..AMAZING..They really cater to each child as though that is the only student..We are very pleased with the program..high marks.. LePort Parent, from GreatSchools.org
Our son started at LePort’s Lake Campus in their Pre-primary class when he was18 months old. We were thrilled with his first teacher, Ms. Ana and her assistant teachers Ms. Anabella, and Ms. Maricela . After he moved up to his Primary class with Ms. Dias, we had the opportunity to observe the classroom and were impressed withher teaching style. Ms. Dias and her assistant teacher, Ms. Kang, are patient and caring, and they seem to have a close connection with their students. Ms. Dias is both stern andnurturing at the same time, and it is apparent how much her students respect and learn from her. Recently, our son took an accidental tumble at home. He spilled his drink all over the floor and was crying because he had hurt himself.Although he had not stoppedsobbing from the pain, he automatically got up, retrieved some paper towels, and proceeded to clean up his mess. This self-disciplineis an example of the influence that Ms. Dias and the Montessori method have had over him. We recently asked him what he thought about Ms. Dias. He said, “I like her because she loves me.” I don’t know how much they pay her but it is not enough. LePort Parent, from GreatSchools.org
We are very happy with this school so far. After watching our daughter attend the preprimary program for several weeks we have noticed definite social maturity and dramatic increased vocabulary and speech. Her teacher, Ms Ana is wonderful and our daughter is really excited when she talks about her. We attended the parent education event and we realized how much thought and prior organization goes into all the activities that the children do daily. There are not “just playing”, everything has an important learning point and lesson. We have been very impressed with the Head of the School Ms. Thompkins- very intelligent, well spoken, educated individual, who definitely “knows what she is talking about”! I have the read the other reviews, I do agree, it would be nice to get some kind of daily or weekly progress report on the child or the activities they did that day/week. But, if you take the time to ask the teacher, she happily explains and tells you what they did that day. We look forward to future time in Leport with our daughter and soon our youngest son! LePort Parent, from GreatSchools.org
LePort Our daughter is 4. She is at Leport Lake for 6 months now. We can’t be happier with the quality of this school. And we have to compare with… We’ve had terrible experience at one of Newport Beach preschools. At LePort Lake she is safe, happy, she learn’s a LOT. She starts to try to read, she’s alredy writes her name, they learn geography, mathematics, they have dance classes, music classes, foreighn languages classes, sports…. They changed some of the teachers. I ALWAYS recieve letter that confirms about some changes or events at the school. I ALWAYS have opportunity to speak with my daughter’s teachers or the head of the school with no problems. And i never felt or heard anything rude from whomever: children, teachers or parents. The reviews are a big help if your in the process of finding a school for your child. BUT i would say: trust your eyes and heart! Just pay a visit to the school. When i saw confident, polite, happy and smart children there, when i came, i knew i want my daughter there. I’m still not dissapointed. Look at the children. If you like what you see, then you’ll like your child to be there. LePort Parent, from GreatSchools.org
My daughter (34 months) goes to this school for the last 5 months in the half day primary class . I have seen a great improvement in her attitude, intellect and social behavior. The other day I was picking her up from school and she said, “I think my school is fantastic and my teachers are incredible”. I know it was hard for even me to digest the fact that my 34 month old can use words like incredible and fantastic, but the truth is that she is right. Her teachers Ms. Rees and Ms. Jones are very understand and patient. Her pre-primary teachers were great too. And Ms. Julia and Mrs. Thompkins are so helpful, always greeting parents with a smile and ready to resolve any problems that parents like me have. I am glad that I enrolled my toddler in the Leport Irvine school. In my daughters words, “its oouutstanding” LePort Parent, from GreatSchools.org
I am so happy with the school, but more important, my toddler is also as happy to go to school each morning. the teachers in the pre-primary room are so nice and patient and sweet. And Julia at the front office y so nice to both parents an kids, and always ready to help out in every way she can. LePort Parent, from GreatSchools.org
We enrolled our son in Le Port Montessori when he was 20 months old. Within a couple of weeks he was waking up everyday wanting to go to school. The teachers are very involved and completely plugged into the child’s development. We find in him a very positive change in confidence and comfort level in social settings. We attribute a large part of his development to Le Port Montessori teachers and their curriculum. LePort Parent, from GreatSchools.org
My daughter started in Sept. She is always happy at the end of the day & proud to do the Montessori ‘work’. She also learns a lot from the older kids in the class. She can sing complicated songs and loves her caring, enthusiastic teachers. I have observed the class and found most kids are very self-disciplined and confident. I found the adminstrative staff to be very helpful, and my teacher responded to my concerns timely. The teachers are all well-qualified Montessori teachers. LePort Parent, from GreatSchools.org
My son has been going to Leport for almost two years and we are very happy of his progress acadamically. The teachers are supportive and very caring. I am enrolling my 2 y/o son this year. Ms. Julia is very nice to the children and she tries to greet the children in the morning. Always prompt with communication email for the parents, for any updates or holidays off. It enables the parents to plan ahead. LePort Parent, from GreatSchools.org
This is the first year for my daughter bt i really feel happy i gt in to her in leport,they way teaching,learning skills are diff from other regular preschools..she really loves it and teachers are wonderful and administration too,they have evalutatio &parent meeting its good for parents too. LePort Parent, from GreatSchools.org
I can’t shout loudly enough how much I LOVE this school! The teachers are wonderful, the classroom clean and full of things to explore. They outside play area is huge! I saw the comment by the parent about the school being closed–and I am very surprised…because the school gave me the calendar when I enrolled my son. I knew the days they would be closed in advance. Also, they offer daycare on these days for a small price. I don’t mind because I can spend more time with my son (even if it means some time off of work because he’s only going to be little once). I recommend LePort because I have seen my son learn so much this year under the hand of his teachers. I wanted the best for him and I found there. LePort Parent, from GreatSchools.org
Our four year old has been attending LePort since he was two and a half. The level of attention the children receive is exceptional and they truly foster a love of learning that makes us proud to see. The staff are committed to their program and the children they are entrusted with. We were amazed that our son had learned to write his name at age three and were blown away by the fact that he has started to bring home completed math assignments already. LePort fosters a caring environment and family atmosphere, which we love. The children enjoy their ‘work’ and take pride in their accomplishments. The older children helping out their younger peers on more challenging tasks develops a social dynamic that is special and unique. As parents we are very pleased with the value we receive from LePort and will be enrolling our younger son as well. LePort Parent, from GreatSchools.org
This school has been great for my daughter! The staff is friendly and the classrooms neat and tidy. My daughter loves going to school each morning (after a brief couple of weeks with intermittant crying at drop-off time). The price is a bit high, but I don’t mind because the staff is well-trained and loves working with the students. I would highly recommend LePort Schools to any parent who wants their child to be educated. LePort Parent, from GreatSchools.org
My daughter and son both go to LePort and both my kids love to be there. Especially the 18 month to 2.5 year old program is excellent. My child was independent within 6 months of enrollment. And the teachers are very very caring and loving. They are one of the authentic Montessori’s around. Thank you LePort. LePort Parent, from GreatSchools.org
Wonderful school and patient,kind teachers. My son’s first year at Irvine and he gets excited each morning to go. Staff is always helpful. As far as the complaints from other parents, if you don’t know what your child is learning, ask your child or the teacher. They also have a book on different things in the classroom. And yes, they have certain rules like drop off and pick up times, so it doesn’t cause disruption, which I appreciate. If a parent can’t respect simple rules then this school is not for them. LePort Parent, from GreatSchools.org
I don’t have anything to compare to, but we go to the Irvine, Lake Leport and my child is 2. She started 2 months ago and the teacher, Ms. Kandy, has been a great help in transitioning her. My child has had difficulties, but every day is better. Administrators are nice and program seems fun with lots of equipment. They change diapers and help potty train too. They sing songs and have storytime, as well as play in the yard, and have individual station time. LePort Parent, from GreatSchools.org
School is clean and well-organized. Classrooms are large and have lots of Montessori equipment. My daughter’s teacher was very nice and always available to meet with me. Truly a quality program and I highly recommend this school! LePort Parent, from GreatSchools.org
My 2 1/2 year old son has been attending LePort Monitissori for the past year. Since he is very young, academics have been light, but I am happy with the introduction to basic skills he is recieving. I am also impressed with the physical size and cleanliness of the rooms compared to other schools I have visited, in the Irvine area. The staff at Leport are caring and the administrators are helpfull, friendly and all know my sons name. I am looking into the coming academic stage at Leport now. LePort Parent, from GreatSchools.org
very good school to attend, only Montessori school that are accedited LePort Parent, from GreatSchools.org
I am so happy to have my daughter at LePort-Irvine Lake. I participated in a program called “Watch Me Work”, where I was able to go into my daughter’s classroom and observe. While I was there, I noticed that everychild in the classroom knows what he/she wants to learn or likes to do. I thought it was so amazing that the Pre-Kchildren began to study the basic concepts of division. My daughter does not like to work on anythingrelating to math at home, but she enjoys to study math with her friends in the classroom. ExcellentLePort Parent, from Google+
I am a Mom of a Pre-primary student at Irvine, lake campus. I am a homemaker as of now, love to spend my time with my family; and also have an experience of 7 yrs of teaching this gentle age group. It was for this reason that I was so reluctant in selecting a school which would best serve my child to create love for her education. To be honest, Google didn’t show me good reviews of the lake campus, but, keeping faith in God, I still went forward to enroll my child as I completely love the Montessori approach. On the day of enrollment, I spent about half hour with Ms. Lucia Tompkins, Head of School, discussed my view points and shared her’s. I conveyed that how important it is for me and my husband to see our child well behaved and well mannered, more than anything! Love and respect for others is what we want to inculcate in our child. Our daughter joined Ms. Kim and Ms. Anabella’s class. Both the teachers are so calm and loving with the children. Also to mention, my daughter was a very picky eater and her teachers taught her how to sit and eat independently. I still remember, the first few days of school, how many calls a day I used to make at the reception to make sure my child was fine and they always used to respond happily and always answer your questions with a smile! I am so thankful to the teachers and the school for the loving support they’ve given throughout. Now for some personal reason, we have to shift to the San Marino campus. I hope we continue to have the same kind of happy and joyful experience with the new teachers and the school. I am quite confident that as my child is surrounded by loving and caring staff of Leport; she will turn out to be a good human being! ExcellentLePort Parent, from Google+
Two days ago, I was invited to observe in my child’s classroom for more than two hours. I was so happy with what I observed. From the minute I walked in to the end of my observations, I didn’t find one child that wanders without any work to do. Every child knows what they want to do and they do it with a purpose. Teachers make sure they concentrate on every child’s work and do not mix with the other children’s work. The teachers ask questions to engage the child’s learning. Truth be told, I admire these kids! They are very systematic in their work, attitude and behavior. Simple things like cleaning up their work after they are done, to sliding their chairs in once they are done. It just amazes me! As a parent, I thought children should not be given too many choices (I am sure many parents will agree with me) but here it is wrong, here children are given a lot of choices and the kids pick wisely. Which makes me think, that I need to change as a parent and give my son more choices. During a lesson his teacher purposely said the numbers wrong just to make sure that my son was engaged in his work, and he corrected her. I was blown away and so thrilled. I also watched my son work with a trinomial cube, which as a parent I had trouble putting together, and he did it beautifully and tried each cube to make sure it fit perfectly. The number rods they use in the classroom have helped my son to be already learning addition. Children are not distracted by things happening in their classroom, they are concentrated on their own work. The older children in the class not only do their own work but they help the younger children to learn as well. It felt like a family environment and reminding me of my own family. I also observed a tour going on in the classroom and the children who were in transition between works, came up to the tour and shook their hand and welcomed them to their classroom. They engaged with both the mother and the child to make them feel as though this was their classroom as well. I feel good that my son is in wonderful hands and I know I made the right decision in placing my child in LePort- Irvine Lake. ExcellentLePort Parent, from Google+
I was able to observe my child in his classroom a few days ago. I was very impressed to see how all the activities flew so smoothly. The children were engaged in their work quietly and teachers guided them appropriately. My son looked like a different person as he concentrated on his work. I found out that he could do so many things all by himself and do them well. I really thank all the teachers for their energy and support for our kids. ExcellentLePort Parent, from Google+
My daughter started in this school for over a year now. She is very excited to go to this school and always happy at the end of the day. She learns a lot from the older kids in the class. Whenever I had any concerns, the administrative staff have been very professional, approachable and very helpful. They do make adjustments on their school policies based on the situation. The teachers respond to all the queries and I am impressed with the montessori activities. I am extremenly happy that I found this school for my daughter. ExcellentLePort Parent, from Google+
My husband and I had extensively researched schools offering the official Montessori Method. We decided to enroll our son in LePort’s Lake campus based on our interviews with and tours of different schools and campuses. Unlike other Montessori schools, LePort’s Montessori Method program is geared towards children as young as 18 months old. Their campuses are clean and well kept. They have strict sign-in and sign-out procedures in place for the children’s safety, and they are diligent in issuing any “ouch” or injury reports to keep the parents fully apprised of any incidents involving their children. All classrooms have the official Montessori Method materials. Because the children are always engaged in lessons, we felt confident that we were not leaving our child at a standard daycare facility or baby factory. From our interactions with other parents, it appears that the LePort parents have similar values regarding their children’s education.
Our son has attended LePort’s Lake campus since he was 18 months old. We have been very pleased with our son’s teachers and assistant teachers. Ms. Ana, Ms. Fernando, Ms. Maricela and Ms. Anabella are excellent at what they do, and we feel that our son has benefited tremendously from their guidance (and patience!). The teachers and staff keep an open line of communication with us, and they always welcome and take into account parent input, which we truly appreciate. Over the past year, we have seen our son blossom, and it is a testament to the quality of teachers and the program at LePort. ExcellentLePort Parent, from Google+
Great school! After going to their parent education event, we came to the realization that our child doesn’t go to school to “just play” but there is actually logic behind what they do and teach…it’s brilliant! ExcellentLePort Parent, from Google+
We are new to LePort, and already feel so at home. I’m one of “those” moms, and after staying home with my son for most of his life, I doubted I could find a place that I’d be happy with. In the past, I’ve only been able to find things that were wrong with care centers and sitters–but not here. The office staff was so compassionate and understanding with us in our son’s first weeks, I’ll remember it always. They encouraged us to call many times throughout the day to check on him, and each time we did, they put us on hold, walked into his classroom, picked up the phone from the classroom and described with such detail and care what and how he was doing. They care. You don’t find that often enough in childcare centers, believe me, I’ve tried.
Beyond the nurturing environment (which I’ll be honest, I did not expect to find in a Montessori school), he is thriving academically. He comes home and talks about his friends, and his teacher, and each day blows me away with some new skill, phrase, or lesson he’s learned. He is so happy to be there, and it’s helping him to become more social and confident.
The school closings are somewhat more often than most daycare centers, but are on par with an actual school. They do their best to offer free daycare on days where there are closures or half days, and I’ve found they are extremely receptive of feedback. That’s my only tiny gripe, but as I see it, when someone else is caring for YOUR child, there WILL be gripes. And I’m just blessed that the only one I have is that the school isn’t open as often as I’d like it to be. That’s pretty great.
Most people will warn you about the cost of Montessori, but if you do your research is only marginally more than other group care centers in the area, and worth significantly more than the difference in cost. It’s not as economical to be part-time, as we’ve found, but nothing I’ve ever done for my son financially has been more worth it.
I’d encourage you to go explore the classroom and talk with the teachers. I knew after my first visit this was THE place for my child. My husband was hesitant as well, until he took his visit. It was the first care facility we toured where the tour didn’t include just where the diapers were changed and how often, and the rest of the daily grind, but what my child would actually be learning, and what the methods were behind it. …And the actual classroom was just amazing.
Some might complain that they don’t provide meals, but to me that was a benefit. We eat very healthy, fresh (and vegetarian) foods, and I’ve never been thrilled at the idea of my baby eating fruit cocktail, chicken nuggets, and sugary cereals at a school whose program was supplemented by the USDA. I love that LePort has a no-sugar policy and that I’m able to provide my child with the foods I believe he should be eating. And when I want a day off, they provide an AMAZING service that allows you to order a healthy meal online and have it delivered to your child. Seriously, that right there should tip the scales. Super convenient.
I could go on and on, and already have of course!, but love everything about this school. They have amazing communication, regular updates, know their stuff with technology and you can do a lot online, have super qualified teachers…really, nothing to complain about. If you knew me, you’d hardly believe I just said that.
I only wished I’d found it sooner. Go! Sign up! ExcellentLePort Parent, from Google+
After searching for the right preschool, I didn’t get a good feel for some of the corporate chain preschools where profits seemed to be the driving factor for their success. Nothing seemed to feel right. Some were unacceptable in terms of staff, curriculum and cleanliness.
After researching about what an authentic Montessori preschool has to offer, I decided to look into LePort Schools. From the first point of contact I was greeted with a caring, genuinely helpful person. After meeting Ms. Tompkins, Head of School at the Lake Campus for more than an hour to discuss my questions and concerns, I had a deep feeling that this was where I wanted son & daughter to be.
The Lake campus is in an older building than the other campuses. It has a very open, warm, home-like feel, even though it is definitely a preschool setting. I like the fact that it sits next to the creek where the children are surrounded by trees, animals and nature, as opposed to a residential or industrial park setting.
Megan at the front desk is friendly, helpful and willing as ever to always assist. The teaching staff is remarkable. Their dedication, care and love they provide to their students shows in the calm and orderly aura of the school. You can feel the happiness exude from the children. Being a true Montessori environment, you can see a level of independence the children have just by walking by the classrooms in the morning as the children are hanging up their own jackets, greeting their teachers and ready to start their ‘work day’. It’s amazing.
Our 3 and a half year old son just completed his first year at LePort Lake Campus. We could not be happier with his teacher, Ms. Andrea Dias. Ms. Dias is one of the newest members of the teaching staff, but, don’t let that fool you. She has over 20 years experience as a Montessori teacher and it definitely shows.
Our son took a while to adjust. Not a surprise to us as he had never been away from me since the day he was born, nor, had he much exposure to non-family caregivers. You could say, he was a little sheltered. Ms. Dias has a very cheerful, nurtering and loving presence. Our son took to her right away. But, she is no push-over. She can be no-nonsense when the time calls for it. She turned out to be the perfect teacher for our son. Within a few months our son was a completely different boy. He has blossomed into a truly independent, confident, happy boy who is eager to learn. He talks about Ms. Dias all the time at home. It is apparent to us he wants to please her and she has his full respect. Ms. Kang the assistant teacher is just as valuable. She always has a wonderful smile and loves to laugh. She can also be stern when she needs to and is the perfect balance.
On the weekend our son misses school and asks when he will be going back. At home he wants to help clean up, cook, shop, read, clean up his toys – he is unrecognizable! We are so grateful to Ms. Dias and her nurturing presence.
As for our 2 year old daughter, she just completed her third month in Ms. Kim’s pre-primary class. Her experience has been just as life changing (in just 3 months). She is on the fast track and has taken to her Montessori experience quite well, thanks to Ms. Kim who is amazingly kind and caring. You can tell she really is committed to teaching her children how to be completely independent in the gentlest way. The woman has the patience of a saint.
She helped our daughter get through her separation anxiety with no-nonsense compassion. Now, our daughter has to be reminded (by Ms. Kim) to say goodbye to me when I drop her off. At home she sings song she learns at school throughout the day. She wants to get her own milk and snacks by herself and is eager to help out. She will sit and read a book by herself for 15 minutes. She even wants to change her own diaper.
The assistant pre-primary teachers are wonderful. Ms. Annabella, Ms. Maricella and Ms. Dita (sp?) are special. Such care and compassion these teachers have. I saw my daughter run to Ms. Annabella today and hug her for 20 seconds. She really does love her teachers, as I see how she greets them each morning.
I sound like a commercial for LePort Lake Campus and I guess I am. We live across the street from the new Orchard Hills location, which I’m sure is fantastic. After toiling over whether to transfer my children to the much closer location, all we had to do was think about Ms. Dias and Ms. Kim and it was a no brainer despite a longer distance drive.
I can’t say enough about the teachers and staff. This is a teaching community of nurturers dedicated to providing the best level of Montessori knowledge and skills to children. This place has it all, solid Montessori curriculum, the most excellent teaching staff a parent could dream of and tight administration. Some may complain the admin part is too stringent, but I appreciate a fair and well run program. I wouldn’t expect any less. LePort Parent, from Yelp
Wow am I lucky to have my kid in this school! It kinda happened on a fluke. I was moving to Irvine and had a school all lined up (co-op 2 1/2 days a week) but as the move date came closer I realized that I would be constantly shuttling my kid from school to daycare and back while trying to startup a business…Panic! Reality! I literally found this place on the web while at my previous job, called, set a tour appt. and went.
That said, we entered our son in the summer toddler program midway through (august) after his first week of potty training (the school recommended cold turkey…I’m a believer now). This was a good move because we had help from the school during the day (and peer pressure or culture as it were) and this really sped the process along (some stay at home kids that I know took vastly longer).
The montessori method- I’m still learning about this (and wasn’t necessarily drawn to the school because of it) makes a lot of sense and fits right in with my own developmental philosophy of allowing the child to develop foundational basics at their own pace and in their own sequence before attempting to build more complex understanding. This is really a wholistic approach to human cognitive, social, and physical development using a phased kinesthetic approach.
The school grounds are convienently located on lake rd right next to Woodbridge Center (barranca and lake) and the with wash on the other side. There are 5 classrooms (1 toddler and 4 primary) and two outdoor play yards (again one toddler and 1 primary) with relavant equipment and plenty of space to run around.
Business wise this school is very organized. There is a parent handbook which goes over all of the policies and procedures (a must read) and often the reasoning behind said policies. This really makes it easy to know what and how to take care of the glamourous business of dropping your kid off (at the right time and place), late policy, etc. The school layout flows well for the pick up and drop off. Monica LePort ( schools owner) and Gayle the Irvine campus administrator are always in the front office in the morning and greet each student and family as they arrive (if you go through the front office). This is also useful for asking questions, paying tuition, etc.
The Teachers- While I am still getting to know the teachers, I am very pleased that they are all supremely dedicated to the Montessori method and are open and available for meetings, updates, working with parents on their child’s idiosynchracies (such as learning how not to hit others…). The school holds informational sessions to educate parents and involve them in the teaching process (at home or by observation) monthly and covers such topics as the different montessori specific materials in their respective phases, montessori educational philosophy, etc. I find these useful as I have a better idea how to compliment my son’s progress when he is not in school.
Cost- my son is in a full time progran (5 days a week) with before school and after school care (7:30 am – 6:00 pm available). This is actually less expensive than what I would have to pay to have my kid in a 2 day a week co-op (which I would also have to voulenteer my time in ) plus daycare (and I would have to take time off work to shuttle my kid back and forth). The savings is neglible (~maybe 100-200 dollars) but the time savings is worth many, many times that. Add to that the consistancy of having a single location for my son to minimize the number of transitions that he has to make during the day and you’ve got a winning combo.
Added bonus- I can and actually have ridden my son to school on my bike as the school is right next to one of the city bike paths. The travel time door to door is roughly the same as driving. Its fun and I get exercise. Plus my son gets to arrive in a style that other kids can only wish their parents took advantage of. LePort Parent, from Yelp
After visiting several Irvine day cares, both regular and Montessori, we chose the LePort school in Woodbridge. It has been a wonderful experience all around for our son (age 2). At the start of the fall term, separation anxiety was high. Now in the middle of spring term, he is running to the classroom and telling us the exciting things he did each day. We are amazed and grateful for all the positive lessons, vocabulary and behaviors he brings home. LePort Parent, from Yelp
