At Lake Forest Montessori children discover a passion for learning and a joy for newly discovered independence as they work with others in the family-like community of a Montessori environment. The thoughtful, child-centered curriculum fosters self-motivation, confidence and empathy for one another.

Our progressive approach to education focuses on the Montessori method and encompasses the very best practices of current early childhood education theory. Individualized learning and unique Montessori manipulative materials provide “hands-on” learning in a safe, loving atmosphere. A love for learning is fostered in each child.

Richa Sharma

I am the Executive Director/Owner of Lake Forest Montessori School. I live with my husband and two boys in the City of Lake Forest. My boys are the alumni of Lake Forest Montessori. We have a wonderful dog named Leo. I received my MS in technology from Cal State Long Beach.

Since my early childhood, I have been surrounded by great teachers. My mother was a teacher. Seeing my mother work selflessly to create a positive impact on every child’s life inspired me since my childhood. I pursued my degree in early childhood education to pursue my love for children and passion for education. We believe, children learn best when they are having fun. At Lake Forest Montessori, we strive to create fun-loving learning experiences for your child, thus turning them into lifelong learners.
