Welcome to the Irvine Orchard Hills Montessori preschool, in the Irvine Orchard Hills Village Center.

Welcome to LePort Schools, where we equip your child with Knowledge for Life – the essential skills and knowledge he needs to thrive as a joyous child today, and as a successful adult tomorrow.

The Orchard Hills Campus is a neighborhood preschool, conveniently located in the Orchard Hills Village Center. We offer a convenient childcare and preschool choice for families living in Irvine’s Orchard Hills, Northwood, Northpark, and West Irvine neighborhoods, as well as to families living in southern Tustin.

Our new campus opened in February of 2012, and we’ve already outgrown our facility. That’s why we are expanding into an adjacent space, adding a new preschool class that will open by April 2014. If you are interested in starting your child in our toddler or preschool program next spring, now is the time to contact us and to join our waitlist: we have a handful of spots open for outside families to start in April 2014 in the preschool program, and, depending on move-ups, we may be able to make a few enrollment offers to toddlers as well.

At the Irvine Orchard Hills preschool we offer:

A brand-new, purpose-built facility. Our campus was built out just two years ago to LePort’s demanding specifications. Each class has access to a restroom within the classroom space, and, with our upcoming renovations, most preschool classrooms will have direct outdoor access, so children will have the opportunity to enjoy our great Southern California weather and work outside throughout the day.

A stable, well-trained, highly-motivated teaching team. All of our head teachers have completed the most rigorous, year-long AMI Montessori certification. Our Head of School, Ms. Amy Kwong, has been with LePort for many years, first as an AMI-trained toddler teacher, and now in the leadership role at Orchard Hills; she’s also the mother of two children who attend LePort Montessori.

A high-quality, authentic Montessori program. Did you know Montessori isn’t trade marked, and that schools vary widely in quality—but that only high-fidelity programs deliver the outstanding results Montessori is known for? Our program is such an authentic program, and because the Lake campus has been around for over ten years, your child will benefit from stable, mixed-age classrooms communities.
