Community Health & Wellbeing

“The needs of mankind are universal. Our means of meeting them create the richness and diversity of the planet. The Montessori child should come to relish the texture of that diversity.”

– Dr. Maria Montessori
Our Mission 
The Lakeview community inspires its students to learn, lead & succeed together.

At Lakeview we begin with a deep respect for children as unique individuals. We offer a warm and supportive environment where children do not get lost in the crowd and offer an exciting environment for learning. Students learn to work independently and within small groups, allowing for more one-on-one individualised attention and care from their teachers.

At Lakeview Montessori School, we understand that mental health and well-being are important for student success and directly aligns with academic achievement and social-emotional development. We strive to promote student mental health by creating welcoming, caring and inclusive learning environments where diversity is recognized, respected and celebrated, and where every student is engaged as an active, contributing member of our learning communities.

Montessori education, in its essence, is a pedagogy of acceptance, love, and understanding. We are so very lucky that over 100 years ago, far ahead of her time, Dr. Maria Montessori built a peace education curriculum to support the work of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging, and was nominated for two Nobel Peace Prizes for her important work.
