Welcome to a dream come true:
a new Montessori school in the heart of San Francisco!
|Two years ago, in Spring 2013, there were some dreamers–parents who wanted an authentic Montessori program for their toddler. They found that programs either weren’t up to their expectations–or had waitlists so long that you needed to join them before your baby was even born. They took matters into their own hands, contacted LePort, and organized events to demonstrate the need for a new high-quality program in San Francisco. By June 2013, fifteen families had committed to bringing LePort to town, by prepaying three years of tuition. By September 2013, we had secured a beautiful building, and in February 2014, began renovations. On January 5th, 2015, our Montessori school welcomed one hundred forty inaugural students to our programs for infants, toddlers and preschoolers. We’re conveniently located one block from the Van Ness Muni station, near Van Ness and Market. It’s an urban setting in a charming historical building with a spacious outside play area, something that’s hard to find in the heart of the city! Our future plans for San Francisco include a Montessori elementary program, which we plan to open in time for our first group of preschoolers to continue with us into the elementary years. Stay tuned for updates!
Our school is now open: our first day was January 5th, 2015.

Discover San Francisco’s new Montessori preschool
The San Francisco Mid-Market campus is a new preschool, conveniently located on Fell Street, on the block between Market Street and Van Ness Avenue, just a block from the Van Ness Muni station and three blocks from the Civic Center Bart station. We invite you to discover our wonderful, nurturing Montessori programs for infants, toddlers and preschool-aged children, which is now open. It’s an urban setting in a charming historical building, with a spacious outside play area, something that’s hard to find right in the heart of the city! We offer:
A great environment with many enticing, varied spaces. An urban school with a beautiful, natural playground. A 3,000+ square feet indoor gross motor area. A sun-filled indoor gardening area. A multi-purpose space for cooking or cuddling up with a book. Ours is indeed a great environment with many enticing, varied spaces.
Bright, spacious classrooms in a beautifully renovated historic building. A historic building with character: from a beautiful façade to a spacious courtyard with old-growth trees and a historic mosaic fountain. Bright, spacious classrooms, all renovated to feature child-height sinks and in-room bathrooms. An urban, loft-like feel with exposed ducting and brick. This is a school that is very San Francisco, one that offers a unique, visually appealing environment for children and staff alike.
Learn more about our new campus.
A community of like-minded, engaged parents. Finding a community as a parent in the city is hard. We aim to make it easier! Ours is a community of parents who value respectful parenting, who place much emphasis on fostering their children’s independence, who truly value education, from infancy onward. It’s a community that has come together around shared values, and interacts regularly, from evening Parent Information Evenings to regular weekend play dates.
