LiMai Montessori Academy

Rancho Santa Margarita Campus

LiMai Montessori Academy's Rancho Santa Margarita Campus, located off Avenida de las Banderas, is designed for children ages 2 to 7 years old. From the developing toddler years through kindergarten, your child will acquire cognitive and emotional skills as a whole person to live a healthy, happy, and productive life.

Toddlers (Potty Training Program)

Children in our toddler environment explore a range of activities designed to help them develop independence, language, control of movement, and much more.

Preschool (2 to 5 years)

We recognize preschool as the beginning of control and coordination of mind and body. That’s why Montessori learning revolves around tangible, hands-on experiences.

Kindergarten to 1st Grade (5 - 7 years)

Students experience mastery and control over skills and concepts they’ve practiced during their three years in the Primary classroom.

Enrichment Programs

Students will experience a mixture of art, athletics, and technology programs designed to promote health, intellect, and social skills.
