Lee Montessori is proud to provide nutritious and tasty meals school breakfast and school lunch program. In keeping with the Montessori philosophy, meal times are lessons in socializing and etiquette in a comfortable setting. All meals are served in the classroom and tables are set by students with place mats and flowers. Both staff and students gather around, much like a family would at meal time. They learn table manners while interacting with friends and adults in a respectful and confident manner.
We are so excited about partnering with Top Spanish, who will be providing Lee Montessori with nutritious and quality lunches.
