With the utmost respect to Dr. Maria Montessori and the Montessori Method, we celebrate many of her discoveries, theories and scientifically designed work. One of the most important tenets, Follow The Child, is at the core of our curriculum.
Every LKA student is thoughtfully observed, and we provide challenging work with attainable goals.
Our loving instructors step in only when needed because we know that our students are capable of so much! Allowing our students to take risks and work at their own pace grows confidence and independence both in and out of the kitchen.
