Welcome to LePort Montessori Aldie

Imagine your child being able to run on a wide grassy field, to creatively play with friends, building with logs and branches under old-growth trees, and to tend to the school chickens which provide eggs for baking in class. Imagine her being able to choose where to work—to pick a spot on a rug or at a wooden table in classrooms with 10 foot windows, or to take work outside, in a private courtyard on a sunny day. Imagine her as a toddler, learning to button her own clothes, as a preschooler sewing a button onto an apron, as a kindergartener doing arithmetic into the thousands with beautiful math materials, such as shiny golden beads strung together into bars and cubes.

At LePort School Aldie, children flourish in an elementary school converted to a beautiful Montessori environment for infants through elementary. Children love the freedom our 11-acre campus provides, and relish the opportunity to sing and perform for their parents on the stage of our multi-purpose room.

In our dual-accredited Montessori school, our certified teachers guide your child in his explorations, nurturing his spirit, and challenging him to learn just as fast and far as his mind and spirit will take him.

You’ll find our school right on Route 50, just west of Stone Ridge, and right on your way to work and shopping from many of the new neighborhoods in the Aldie area. Families from Willowsford, Lenah Woods, Stone Ridge, The Meadows, Lenah Mill, and many others find a welcoming community at our school. We’re also an easy drive from Brambleton and South Riding.

Dr. Maria Montessori once said “Establishing lasting peace is the work of education.” This quote emphasizes the impact that education has in our society on a global scale. By taking a holistic approach to education, we can allow the child to develop academically, socially, emotionally, and physically on their path to becoming quality global citizens.

My mission at LePort Montessori Aldie is to serve the best interest of the child and to provide an authentic Montessori education. Montessori said “Education is not something which the teacher does, but it is a natural process which happens spontaneously in the human being.” By serving the child’s best interest, we allow this spontaneous learning to occur in our beautiful, prepared environments.

I look forward to welcoming your family to LePort as we work together as partners in your child’s education.

Please feel free to reach out to me if you have questions and thank you for all of your support!

How to Get Started

Discovering our school is easy, with many convenient ways to get to know us.

  • Start by exploring the web site. Discover why parents at our schools love LePort—and how Montessori has the potential to change your child’s life, how at each stage, from infancy to elementary, she’ll thrive during her Knowledge for Life journey, how our Passionate Professionalism promise will help you feel secure in your choice, and how our beautiful, carefully prepared environments may make you wish you were a child again!
  • Contact us to get more information. We’ll send you a few emails that answer questions we know are on your mind—from how your child’s day at LePort would look like to how to ease separation anxiety.
  • Come in for a tour. Just contact us via phone, or via the web form at the bottom of this page, and we’ll get right back to you to schedule your tour. Tours usually happen in the mornings: we want you to be able to see our classrooms in action!
  • Attend an event. Our Parent Info Sessions cover a wide range of topics—from why to choose Montessori to how to approach toilet learning with your toddler, from how to foster literacy in preschoolers to the holy grail of how to raise a child who can think on his own.
