LePort Montessori School Reston

An authentic, nurturing Montessori school, offering toddler daycare and preschool/kindergarten, with a Spanish immersion option, in a welcoming, neighborhood community

At LePort Montessori Reston children thrive in a beautiful, nurturing, and authentic Montessori environment. When your family joins our school, you become part of a community of families who value education, and who find in our school a place to connect with other like-minded families. Our aim is to help children 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. By joining our school for the toddler, preschool, and kindergarten years, you also have the option to continue in Montessori Elementary (1st – 6th grade) at our sister schools, LePort Montessori Broadlands and LePort Montessori Chantilly, where our graduates have preferential admission.

Nestled in the woods of the Cedar Chase neighborhood, our beautiful school lies south of Route 7 and just minutes east of Fairfax County Parkway. This charming, free-standing school house was recently renovated and features stunning, custom designed Montessori environments. Each of our classrooms is a bright space, where natural light filters through large windows, and each room features an en suite bathroom for the children. Our Great Room with its central library serves as a gathering space for our community, where children come for in-house field trips and presentations, and where families gather in our tight-knit community to celebrate holidays, graduations, and other special events. Children take delight in playing in our natural playground, where climbing walls, grassy hills with built-in slides, logs, and wooden swings encourage creative play and offer children engaging play equipment not typically found on association playgrounds.

Ms. Melissa Ann Camuti, Head of School, and her team of passionate, nurturing teachers look forward to meeting you, 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 of Private Education. With experienced, Montessori trained teachers, true mixed-age classrooms, and extended, uninterrupted work periods, we offer Montessori education at its best. Ms. Camuti—a Montessori teacher herself, who has had her own two children attend LePort through the elementary years—looks forward to sharing her passion about Montessori with you when you visit.

Give the Gift of Bilingualism

Spanish Immersion for Toddlers and Preschool/Kindergarten

Toddlers and preschoolers have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn a second language almost effortlessly. In the Spanish immersion Montessori classrooms for toddler and 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 (in preschool) 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.
