LePort Montessori School Chantilly

An authentic, nurturing Montessori school, offering toddler daycare, preschool/kindergarten and elementary school, with a Spanish immersion option for preschool/kindergarten, with beautiful, spacious grounds

Our purpose-built school sits atop a hill, overlooking our soccer field, track, and outdoor basketball court, which all lead to a wooded nature area. Our toddlers and preschoolers enjoy playing in their own playground space right next to their classrooms. Our classrooms are bright and light, with large windows, and all preschool classrooms feature en-suite bathrooms. Our elementary students feel grown up in their separate wing, where they can explore our music and science room, or read in our library overlooking the garden they maintain. In our large Great Room, students can gather for in-house presentations, or fun family movie nights.

We’re located just north off the Westfields Boulevard, exit from Route 28, near the Dulles Expo Center, and are surrounded by the Walney Oaks, Walney Village, and Waverly Crossing neighborhoods. Our convenient daily schedules are tailored for working parents: we open as early as 7:00 am, and are open until 6 pm, with year-round program options. Our shorter half-day programs for toddlers and preschoolers are a great option for combining a high-quality school experience with time at home.

LePort Montessori Chantilly offers a high-quality education, for the entire family. With programs for toddlers through elementary school students, your children can thrive at our school for many years. We would like to help your child gain what we call Knowledge for Life: the essential knowledge, thinking skills and strength of character needed to flourish as joyous children today, and as successful adults tomorrow. Many families choose our school for our excellent preschool offerings—and stay through the elementary years, having discovered that individualized, joyful learning experiences in Montessori are worth the investment.

Ms. Nancy Kaplan, Head of School, and her team look forward to showing you around your child’s future school, and helping you discover the life-changing value of a great Montessori education. As Montessori is not a trademarked term, Montessori schools vary widely in quality: some daycares and preschools use the name for marketing, without delivering on the promise of a great education. Our school is dual-accredited by the American Montessori Society and the Virginia Council for Private Education. With experienced, Montessori trained teachers, true mixed-age classrooms, and extended, uninterrupted work periods, we offer Montessori education at its best.

Give the Gift of Bilingualism

Spanish Immersion for Preschool/Kindergarten

Preschoolers have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn a second language almost effortlessly. In the Spanish immersion Montessori classrooms for preschool, both the Montessori-trained head teacher and the assistant teacher are native Spanish speakers, and speak solely in Spanish with the children from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm every day.

Students receive Montessori lessons in Spanish, sing songs in Spanish, and learn to write and read in Spanish. The mixed-age Montessori communities are rich environments for natural language acquisition. You can give your child the gift of being bilingual—just by enrolling them in our Spanish immersion preschool!

See Spanish immersion in action and listen to why parents are thrilled with their children’s Spanish immersion experiences at LePort Montessori.

Chif Kapakasa
Director of Admissions and Parent Experience

Welcome! I’d love to show you around our school!

Montessori education is a wonder to behold. Having worked for many years in college admissions, I am impressed daily by the confidence and competence that the young children at our school exhibit. My own child attends LePort’s infant program at our sister school in Aldie, and I can see the benefits of Montessori already, even though he’s just a baby.

I’d love to meet with you and show you around our school. Choosing the right environment for your preschool or elementary-age child can be challenging, and I’d be honored if you let me answer your questions, and help you decide if joining our Montessori community makes sense for your family.

Please contact us to set up a tour: it will be an hour well spent in making one of the most important decisions in your child’s life.
