LePort Montessori School Encinitas
An authentic, nurturing Montessori school, offering toddler daycare, preschool/kindergarten and a Spanish bilingual (toddler) and immersion (preschool) program
At LePort Montessori Encinitas 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 (1st – 6th grade) at our sister school, LePort Montessori Solana Beach, where our graduates have preferential admission.
LePort Montessori Encinitas is conveniently located 5 minutes off the I5, via Encinitas Blvd. We are right next to the Encinitas fire station, across from the Encinitas Community Center. Our community of families are mostly from Encinitas and Carlsbad, with some joining us from Cardiff, San Marcos, and other nearby communities. Our campus is nestled between a Catholic church/school, and the fire station—just a minute off Encinitas Blvd, yet very private. The school buildings surround a large playground, with many activities for physical and fine-motor development—from a hill with a slide, to wooden logs, sandboxes, a tricycle path, and several gardening boxes and beds.
Mrs. Cecily Cortez, 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. Rising 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.
