Discover Cobble Hill’s Newest Montessori Preschool

Infant • Toddler • Preschool • Kindergarten • Parent & Child Classes

LePort Montessori School is now open in its newly renovated landmarked building located amidst the beautiful brownstones of the Cobble Hill Historic District on Court Street. Our facility is carefully crafted with the developmental needs of children in mind. Our classrooms offer children calm, peaceful environments where they have the luxury of time to focus and purposefully explore the rich Montessori learning materials. They fall in love with learning as they can freely access activities of their choice on the low classroom shelves, under the guidance of loving teachers with AMI Montessori training (the gold-standard in Montessori).

Our school is located between DeGraw Street and Douglass Street. It’s a quick walk to the Bergen Street and Carroll Street subway stops, and a 10-minute walk to Downtown Brooklyn. If you are looking for an excellent infant, toddler, or preschool program for your child, we invite you to discover our wonderful, nurturing Montessori programs.

A peaceful and unhurried oasis within a bustling urban environment. With an emphasis on simplicity, beauty, and the natural world, the Montessori classroom invites children to explore materials, concepts, and friendships free from the clutter and hurried pace of a large city. During an extended and open morning work period, students delve into lessons and projects without the worry of over-scheduling. The classroom is a place to pause, to take deep breaths, and to be at peace.

Beyond the age-specific classrooms, our new school offers many other areas for children to explore. There will be two spacious outdoor play areas and a large indoor gross motor area. Rain or shine, there are opportunities for students to move their bodies and develop their gross motor skills.

LePort School Cobble Hill

A high-quality, authentic Montessori program. Montessori is not a trademarked name, which means that the quality of Montessori programs varies from school to school. We are proud to say ours is an authentic program, which delivers the outstanding results Montessori is known for. Our program has all the components of authentic Montessori: we offer family-like, mixed-age communities, highly trained teachers, and extended stretches of uninterrupted time for children to freely select and fully-explore the many enticing Montessori learning materials they find in their classrooms.
