Montessori of Ladera Ranch Staff

Each of our classrooms are staffed with a Montessori certified lead teacher. Our staff has been carefully chosen for his or her commitment to the highest level of care for children, understanding of the Montessori philosophy, and warmth of spirit. We share a common philosophy and approach, which makes Montessori of Ladera Ranch consistently able to deliver the highest level of commitment and quality care for the community of children.

Our mission at Montessori of Ladera Ranch is to create an environment where academic excellence is in harmony with young lives. We strive each and every day to guide children to reach their full potential; academically, socially and emotionally. The self-sufficient child rewards their community and mentors by becoming positive and active role models in their community.  Our goal is to not only educate our children but to educate our children’s children in the future.
