Food Program

Lee Montessori is proud to provide nutritious and tasty meals through our school breakfast and school lunch program. In keeping with the Montessori philosophy, meal times are lessons in socializing and etiquette in a comfortable setting. Lunch is served in the classroom and tables are set by students, often with placemats and flowers. Both staff and students gather around, much like a family would at meal time.
