LePort Montessori San Francisco Mid-Market

An authentic, nurturing Montessori school, offering infant & toddler daycare, preschool/kindergarten, and a Spanish immersion option

At LePort Montessori San Francisco Mid-Market, children thrive in an authentic, nurturing Montessori environment, and have the option of becoming bilingual in our Spanish-immersion toddler and preschool/kindergarten classrooms. We welcome your entire family–from babies through preschoolers and kindergarten students. At our school, you’ll find a home away from home, a community of educators and fellow parents who believe in the goodness of the child, and the power of an individualized, respectful education. Our mission at LePort Montessori 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.

Our school is located in the heart of our vibrant city, in the Mid-Market area, just off Van Ness and Market Street. In 2013-14, we renovated a historical building, bringing it up to the latest code standards, while retaining its charming historical character. Our school now is an urban oasis amidst a bustling city, with large, spacious classrooms looking out over a central courtyard playground. Inside multi-purpose rooms–a 2,000+ sqft indoor gross motor area, a multi-purpose 4th floor room used for everything from yoga to cooking, and a bright indoor botany/gardening room–allow the children in our school to have a wide variety of experiences even in inclement weather.

Our team of passionate educators look forward to meeting you, showing you around our school, and sharing their passion for authentic Montessori education.

Give the Gift of Bilingualism

Spanish Immersion for Preschool/Kindergarten

Toddlers and preschoolers have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to begin learning 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!
