LePort Montessori School Irvine Woodbridge
An authentic, nurturing Montessori school, offering toddler daycare and preschool/kindergarten, in a welcoming, neighborhood community
At LePort Montessori Irvine Woodbridge children thrive in a beautiful, nurturing and authentic Montessori environment. When your family joins our school, you become part of a diverse, multi-national community committed to giving our children the best English-language Montessori experience possible. Our families come from all over the world: some have recently moved from China, Korea, Iran, India, Japan, Brazil, and other places, while others have been living in Orange County for a long time. Our teachers, too, are a well-traveled, cosmopolitan group, eager to make you feel welcome in our diverse school community. Whatever your story is, we graciously invite you to join our school community.
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 at our sister schools, LePort Montessori Irvine Westpark, LePort Montessori Irvine Spectrum, or LePort Montessori Fountain Valley, where our graduates have preferential admission.
Our cozy school house is nestled between the Woodbridge Village Center and San Diego Creek, in the heart of Irvine’s Woodbridge Village. It is also easy to access from both the 5 and 405 freeways. Many families come from the immediate neighborhood and walk or bike to school. Our students enjoy observing the nature that abounds along the creek side of the playground and the comings and goings on the opposite side, along the San Diego Creek bike/walk trail.
Our classrooms are bright spaces, with beautiful wood-laminate flooring, big windows, high ceilings, and direct outside access from five classrooms, allowing especially our older preschool/kindergarten students an indoor and outdoor classroom experience during the day. The toddler and preschool play yards are well equipped, and offer opportunities for active play, swings, running and kicking a ball, as well as caring for their plants and gardening.
Ms. Lucia Tompkins, the Head of School, and her team of highly experienced teachers look forward to showing you around our Woodbridge school, helping you discover the life-changing value of a great Montessori education. Ms. Tompkins draws upon four decades of Montessori experience, teaching and running her own school in Orange County. She has been the Head of School at LePort Montessori Irvine Woodbridge since 2007. Her own child and later grandchild have attended accredited Montessori programs, with her granddaughter recently graduating from LePort Montessori’s Elementary program in Fountain Valley. She is excited to meet you and open up the world of authentic Montessori to your child and family.
