The South Bay Montessori school is on track to open this spring with construction expected to be done by the end of the week.

This is a brand new, state-of-the art facility located on the Boulevard between West 230th Street and Lomita Boulevard. This is the third location to open, with sister schools in Newport Beach and Irvine.

The Montessori approach was developed by Maria Montessori and focuses on self-directed activity, hands-on learning and collaborative play. Typically in Montessori classrooms, children are encouraged to make creative choices in their learning while the classroom and the teacher offer age appropriate activities to guide in the process.

The private, independent school offer programs for children ages 18 months to 6 years.
