Lisbon Montessori School
Preschool and elementary school for children aged 2 ½-12.
Montessori supports children to be life-long learners and leaders.
Students are encouraged to be confident, inquisitive and creative in all areas of life.
Children in Montessori follow their interests, wherever that passion leads, giving them strong academics, leadership, self-discipline, responsibility, independence, initiative and a lifelong love of learning.
Why Lisbon Montessori School?
All our classrooms are led by an AMI (Association Montessori Internationale) accredited teacher from the USA or Europe, as well as a Portuguese assistant teacher. AMI Montessori teachers have a deep understanding of child development and have been trained to guide children through productive and challenging experiences that will provide a firm foundation for their future.
We encourage children to choose from a range of activities that are developmentally challenging and appropriate.
We inspire children to learn for themselves, make mistakes and correct them on their own.
Our teachers work with children in small groups, or one-on-one, to create individualised education.
Our building and grounds have been designed as a Montessori prepared environment to meet the developmental needs of children and inspire them both in the classroom and at play.
We foster a bilingual environment. Our language of instruction is English. Classroom assistants speak with students in Portuguese.
Our mixed age classrooms provide numerous advantages not found in traditional school systems. Older children serve as leaders while younger students are shown what is expected of them by their role models. This provides children with possibilities to discover ways of functioning in a real social group. In addition, a great deal of knowledge reinforcement results from this interaction of different aged children.
We respect each child as an individual with unique talents. In like manner, children learn respect for others, the community and the environment.

Welcome from the founder Ivona Rozanovska
If a parent is searching for an educational method which would be in harmony with their child’s interests, choices and other natural rights I encourage them to look into Montessori education.
We invite children to be independent and to consider learning for the innate satisfaction it gives and not for awards or grades. Our children are industrious, self-reliant and go about their work with calm enjoyment. We treat every child as an individual and work closely with parents to create an environment in which their child will flourish.
Lisbon Montessori School staff foster a bilingual environment. The main language of instruction is English, providing students with a model of cross-cultural unity during their formative years. Classroom assistants are Portuguese speaking, helping us all appreciate the Portuguese language and culture.
Children can start their Montessori journey in our Casa (3-6 years) and be able to continue in the Elementary (6-12 years) program where thinking independently, cooperating, and connecting to the real world are everyday learning realities. Our classes are mixed-age promoting a society by cohesion and allowing students to learn from each other.
In founding Lisbon Montessori School, my mission is to bring the many benefits of the Montessori education to the local and international communities of Lisbon and Cascais and I hope we can welcome your child to begin their school journey with us.
Ivona Rozanovska, LMS Founder
