The children at LPP are well mannered, respectful of their environment, caring of their school pets, have a strong urge to learn, and most importantly, they are being academically challenged on a daily basis.
Although LPP Montessori is an extremely safe and friendly environment where children are encouraged to embrace their individuality and each others skills and quirks, there is still a competitive edge that is practiced amongst our students through yearly standardized testing, sports, and fairs.
Due to the Montessori system of mixed-age classrooms compassion and empathy is engrained into our students as they help each other to grown and learn the materials. Classroom jobs, and dynamics are geared towards developing these skills.
LPP Montessori is rooted in the principles of honesty, integrity, and fairness. The teachers practice this with their students on a regular basis in peace education, and students have been taught manners and "Golden Rule" philosophy here since they were toddlers. Montessori teaching is geared towards developing these principles, and LPP Montessori is a supreme example of how a school should practice these principles within their community as well as outside the school.
Our boys have been attending LPP for three years. They have learned and grown so much thanks to the style of learning. Our son has been reading now for over a year and a half and is in prek! The campus is gorgeous and the classrooms are so clean. It is an intimate school which helped our older son gain the confidence he needed. Our baby girl will attend the toddler program once she's old enough. We love LPP and our boys do too.
I would highly recommend Le Petit Papillon as I believe it is by far the best Toddler, Preschool and Elementary school Miami Beach has to offer. Ms. Zarling, the teachers and staff are professional, knowledgeable and kind. The classrooms are beautiful, clean, organized and packed with lessons that encourage the children to enjoy learning. The facilities and grounds are state of the art and breathtakingly beautiful. Le Petit Papillon gives it's students strong academic and social foundations. The enrichment programs are second to none. Holiday shows and parties are always a highlight for the parents and kids. The children learn to respect each other and responsibility. All of the children love taking care of their classroom pets, ranging from fish to the cutest pot belly pigs ever. Moreover, Le Petit Papillon has helped me in so many ways from potty training my kids to giving them the strongest academic foundation imaginable, preparing them for entrance and success at the best Preparatory schools in the area. My daughter came home from school one day and told me she loved school so much that her face hurt from smiling so much! My family loves Le Petit Papillon and yours will too!
Our family is extremely happy and grateful to Le Petit Papillion! My daughter has been thru 5 year plus here and we could not be happier!! I have other family members who send their children to e Petit and we are all very pleased with the education and staff. Thak you for so many great years and we continue to stay as long as we can.
The Best Montessori school in Miami Dade. Great management and great teachers and great campus = great School. The security is also unbelievable. All four of my children have gone to this school and I never worried as they were always in good hands.
