Family Resources

We’ve put together a list of essential resources for current and prospective families. You can find information here about our school, plus Montessori education resources we highly recommend. We hope you enjoy the links, books, and classes as much as we do!

We’re working and playing all year round! Download our school calendar for holidays, in service training days, and community events.

Lakewood PTO
