LePort Montessori School Huntington Harbor
An authentic, nurturing Montessori school, offering infant and toddler daycare, preschool/kindergarten and elementary school, as well as a Spanish immersion program
LePort Montessori Huntington Harbor welcomes your entire family! With programs from infants (as young as three months), through elementary school (6th grade), 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 because we are known for being a great preschool—and they stay through the elementary years, because they have discovered that the individualized, joyful learning experiences in our Montessori program are worth investing in, and that the support of a community of like-minded families and passionate educators is invaluable in raising a happy, healthy child.
LePort Montessori Huntington Harbor is a neighborhood school, bringing together families from Huntington Beach, Long Beach, Seal Beach, Westminster, and other nearby communities. Our brick school buildings are surrounded by open green spaces, allowing infants to go on strolls with their teachers, toddlers and preschoolers to run on grassy fields, and elementary school students to play ball and grow fruits, vegetables, and flowers in our large school garden. Our school has been in operation since 2000, and over the past 15 or so years, we have grown into a vibrant community of over 200 families who share a passion for children living an active life, becoming independent, can-do individuals, and acquiring strong academics skills in a joyful, engaging way.
Mrs. Fatima Asghar, Head of School, and Ms. Kristy Gump, Director of Admissions and Parent Experience, as well as their 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. Mrs. Asghar has been with our school since its founding, working her way up from Montessori-certified teacher to school leader, all the while creating a strong parent community and a warm, beautiful campus for our students and their families. Ms. Gump is not only passionate about Montessori; her own daughter has been attending the program since she was four months old. 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. The combination of well-trained, experienced teachers (all of our head teachers are trained by the Association Montessori Internationale, the gold standard in Montessori training), a full range of Montessori materials for each classroom, mixed-age classroom communities, and uninterrupted work periods, set our school apart.
