Mari is patient and present with our child, and other children in her charge, and has demonstrated tremendous responsibility in taking care of our son (and in taking care of her space in our household). She is kind, trustworthy and has a magic touch with children. She is empathetic and insightful and knows how to 'speak our child's language'. Our son has been particularly touched by her puppet skills and love of music. It is clear to me that Mari is passionate about working with children. Her inspiration is manifested in her communication skills and creative ideas for activities. She keeps the children under her watch occupied and most importantly, safe. Ultimately, Mari is an excellent nanny because she is so trustworthy. She is always on-time and held to high responsibility. My family has never known her not to be forthcoming and honest. She has fostered a true bond with our child and our family, and sets an example of empathy, character and respect but not without the FUN!

Bhumika has been our nanny for the past 6 months. She is very dependable, earnest, punctual and of cheerful disposition. She takes my toddler to class, library and parks. I had another baby few months ago and she helped me settle in with the baby, helping with household chores even without me asking for it. She is very good with infant care, giving the baby a bath, and rocking her to sleep. She cooks delicious meals and would even bring groceries home if she knew I was running short. I would definitely hire Bhumika again, we're only letting her go as my toddler will start preschool soon.

Discover an authentic Montessori school in the heart of Emeryville.

Our preschool campus offers programs for infants (3 months) through kindergarten (6 years), where children experience an authentic Montessori environment. Our trained teachers have created beautifully prepared spaces. They, together with the assistant teachers and after school staff, are a passionate group of educators eager to make your child's first school experience joyful and rewarding.

Our loft-like spacious preschool building, a converted former warehouse, features purpose-built classrooms, with child-height sinks, small toilets, bright windows and direct access to the outside from each classroom. In the back of the building, secured from the street via fencing and sturdy stores, children play on a natural play area, complete with grass, a sandbox, and a hill with a slide. A rooftop deck excites children with gardening boxes and a tricycle path. Infants have a cozy separate play area all their own. On rainy days, all children enjoy access to an indoor gross motor area, complete with climbing wall, which is also a great place for active after school programs, such as yoga and gymnastics.

For toddlers and preschool, you can choose between an English language Montessori program, or a Mandarin immersion program, where the entire Montessori experience is delivered in Mandarin Chinese. Infants experience a bilingual program (with both Mandarin-speaking and English-speaking staff). Whether you are an English monolingual, looking for a more global education, or a Chinese-speaker who wants to help your child to learn Chinese in a more joyful way, we invite you to discover Mandarin Montessori at LePort.
