* This is an example of a ‘typical’ day in our Montessori classroom. Since we practice Montessori approach, we follow the child. Timings may change due to special events and the needs of the children.
** At LMS we respect child’s natural pace and strive to foster their autonomy. Thus, morning and afternoon snacks are made available to children, so that they can serve themselves in their own time during the Work Cycle. During the afternoon cycle elementary students may do sports or team games in the outdoors. Casa students supervised by the assistant staff may visit the gym in the back garden.
