Our low student to teacher ratio in both programs ensures that all children receive the guidance they need to fully reach their individual potential.
We also offer before and after-school enrichment programs, as well as a summer camp, to help parents whose workday extends beyond school hours.
L'Enfant offers a three-year primary program called "Children's House" for children 2½ to 6 years.
Children's House carries children through their kindergarten year, promoting them into the first grade of the elementary program as confident and bilingual learners.
As a member of a classroom community that includes a range of ages, children work both independently and in small groups.
Often older children serve as mentors, setting an example and giving lessons to younger members of the community.
This environment provides children a special opportunity to develop compassion, leadership skills and an attitude of service as they grow and learn.
Montessori-certified and native speakers of the full immersion language teachers (guide) help children in our primary classrooms develop a strong academic foundation built on language skills, math, geography, science, music and art.
The guides also help them acquire practical life skills, such as caring for themselves and their classroom environment.
By design, the Montessori classroom, and specific materials contained within, spark curiosity and promote learning, self-regulation, independence and responsibility.
A guide and a dedicated assistant teacher lead each primary classroom. They work together to provide each child the individualized guidance needed to reach their full potential. Additional assistant teachers are always available and nearby if needed.
