LePort Montessori School Irvine Orchard Hills
An authentic, nurturing Montessori school, offering toddler daycare and preschool/kindergarten, conveniently located to Irvine, Tustin, Orange, Anaheim & Santa Ana
At LePort Montessori Irvine Orchard Hills children thrive in a beautiful, nurturing and authentic Montessori environment. When your family joins our school, you become part of a community that values a child’s joyful and natural development—a community that helps children become independent “can-do” young people. 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 and Middle School (1st – 8th grade) at our sister schools, LePort Montessori Irvine Westpark and LePort Montessori Irvine Spectrum, where our graduates have preferential admission.
LePort Montessori Irvine Orchard Hills is conveniently located in the Irvine Orchard Hills Shopping Center, just minutes off the 261 toll road or the 5, via Culver. Our families come from the surrounding neighborhoods in Irvine, Tustin, North Tustin, Orange, Anaheim and Santa Ana. Our brick school building (fully rebuilt for our school purposes when we opened in 2012) offers students a cozy experience in bright classrooms, all with en suite bathrooms. Each of our five classrooms is equipped with a full set of high-quality Montessori learning materials, and set up as a welcoming, beautiful and calm environment for the children. Our play area invites both active play, where tricycles, climbing nets and swing beckon, and opportunities for creative play and gardening. Surrounded by a brick wall, students have privacy, and keypad protected entry offers security.
Ms. Amy Kwong, 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. Ms. Kwong has been with LePort since June 2008, starting out as a Toddler teacher (she holds a certificate from the Association Montessori Internationale, the gold standard in Montessori teacher training), and has been Head of School since 2013. Ms. Kwong is passionate about introducing families to the many benefits of an individualized, nurturing Montessori education, and dedicated to supporting her staff in delivering the best Montessori education possible. The combination of well-trained, experienced teachers, an investment in a full range of Montessori materials for each classroom, and a commitment to mixed-age classroom communities and extended, uninterrupted work periods, set our school apart.
