Our mission

Lyonsgate Montessori School is a fully bilingual, CCMA-accredited Montessori programme for children 18 months to 9 years of age. At Lyonsgate we believe in education of the whole child. We believe that each child develops at their own individual pace and that through guided experiential learning and hands-on activity, we can help them reach their full potential. We encourage children in a positive way, setting the foundation for a lifelong love of learning.
