About Us

Welcome To Your "Children's House"

Our Vision

Lifetime Montessori School aims to cultivate children to be independent free thinkers, joyful learners, confident individuals and active participants in their community. Our goal is to work with a diverse group of families that feel confident parenting with the Montessori methodology—allowing their children freedom of choice, exploration and discovery. Together, the school and community will produce children who care for their environment, value their community, are inspired to follow their own path, and will excel in all areas of interest.

Our Mission

Lifetime Montessori School provides children 18 months to 12 years old with a full, stimulating and enriching experience based on Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) ideologies. Working hands-on with AMI Montessori materials and highly trained teachers, children become joyful and confident learners who know they can excel at anything they put their mind to.

Our school supports children by collaborating with community members to meet each of their unique needs, and we support our families by engaging, inspiring, and educating parents on a daily basis. Every family member is invited to participate in informative and stimulating events held at the school throughout the year. Each moment children experience at Lifetime Montessori School encourages and allows them to reach their full potential.

Dear Parents,

The Montessori approach to education cultivates more than knowledge; it is "education for life" - this is why we named our school Lifetime Montessori.  Our program prepares your child to become a lifelong learner and problem solver. 

Lifetime Montessori School's mission is to foster a nurturing environment that is physically and psychologically supportive of learning for toddlers through Grade 6.  We offer a cooperative and enriching atmosphere where your child will develop their knowledge through self- and teacher-initiated experiences.  When children graduate from Lifetime Montessori School they are confident, secure, independent and joyful learners.

Dr. Montessori founded the first Casa dei Bambini, or "Children's House" in 1907.  Today we honor her legacy by following all Association Montessori International (AMI) standards and aim to make our school your "Children's House".

Lifetime Montessori School is located in the heart of Santaluz and serves children 18 months old through age 12 in  the Santaluz, Del Sur, 4S Ranch, Rancho Santa Fe, Rancho Penasquitos and Carmel Valley communities. Please visit us for a detailed tour and observation, we'd be happy to meet you!
