About Us

Lectura Montessori School has been serving the Berwyn community since 2009

We are a Montessori School that serves children ages 15 months to age 12. We place an emphasis on providing an environment that encourages young learners to become fluent readers in English and Spanish as they naturally work within all of the areas of the Montessori curriculum.

We at Lectura, care about the development of the whole child.  Teachers observe children as they repetitively engage in: the Montessori materials, grace and courtesy, peace education, care and respect  for; themselves, others, and their environment.


Teacher observations are important because they help teachers have the correct information to effectively guide children to their maximum learning potential.


Lectura was established to provide a quality education for young children.  Our staff works diligently to provide an environment that promotes learning.


As our parents and staff continue to work together our children will succeed.  This is our goal.


We value, welcome and celebrate a diverse population.

Dr. Maria Montessori

Dr. Maria Montessori began to work with a group of sixty young children of working parents in a poor district of Rome.  This is where she founded the first Casa dei Bambini or Children’s House.  Based upon her scientific observations she developed the Montessori Method of education.


She observed their ability to absorb knowledge from their surroundings, as well as their high interest in manipulating materials.  Every piece of equipment exercise and method she developed was based on what she observed children do naturally, by themselves unassisted by adults.


She discovered the importance of early learning.  Children absorb what they learn during their Sensitive Periods. During this time between birth and the age of 6, children are able to acquire specific skills with an ease that will never be duplicated in later life.  During this time children have a passion for discovering new things.  Children feel better, stronger and calmer once their inner urges of discovery are met.  The Montessori environment allows children to fulfill their inner urges of discovery.
