Welcome to Lotti and Maxim Montessori

Best For Education

Our Vision

At LMM we admire the passionate curiosity of the early learner. The non-conformist approach of Montessori education helps us to appreciate and value diverse learning and to help nurture each child’s unique potential.

Children start out in life with an insatiable appetite for discovery and we believe the primary aim of any school should be to support and nurture the ongoing free development of enquiring minds. Learning to learn, – resolving a stream of questions, obstacles, problems and challenges and sometimes getting it wrong – is at the heart of the learning process and Montessori learning environments are like catalysts that enable and encourage it.

What is Montessori?


The Montessori movement is not a narrow method of teaching, but a broad philosophy of life that rests faith in each child as a potential new beginning for humanity and the creator of the adult he will become.

It is our purpose to observe the child’s natural interest and activities and provide an environment in which he can develop and learn. Dr. Maria Montessori believed that self-motivation is the only valid impulse for learning. Within the carefully structured order of the Montessori classroom, the child is free to choose his own projects throughout the day. Following his own inner direction, he discovers his own pattern of learning and finds satisfaction in work.

Our Locations

We have 2 very different locations for you to choose; one located centrally near downtown and the other located over the river and surrounded by nature.
